Huntelaarnetted with a powerful header into the roof of the net after 59 minutes but smashed into Smalling, who went up for the same ball.
The two lay on theWembley pitchfor some time before Smalling was carried away on a stretcher andSchalke 04striker Huntelaar walked off holding a bandage to his face.
Dutch coach Bert van Marwijk told reporters:“Huntelaar has gone to hospital because we think he has some damage there (to his head) but we don’t know for sure.
He looked better in the dressing room than on the pitch, but we have decided to have him checked out. Chris went to hospital. I spoke with him and he was conscious, but he split his head open. Our thoughts are with him and I am hoping that he will be fine. – England’s interim coach Stuart Pearce
