The 28-year-old — the leading scorer in the Bundesliga last season with 29 goals for Schalke 04 and also in the Euro qualifiers with 12 in 10 games — had been left seething when Robin van Persie was preferred to him to lead the attack for their opening Group B match against Denmark.
The Danes went on to pull off a surprise 1-0 win over the Dutch in Saturday’s clash and left the talented but fragile losers in danger of going home early as they still have games against three-time champions Germany and Portugal.
Van Persie gave a listless performance and Huntelaar was finally sent on with 20 minutes remaining.
