Dutch manager Guus Hiddink has just announced his 28-man provisional squad for the upcoming matches against Turkey and Spain.
Daryl Janmaat in Holland’s colors
Turkey is ia a qualifying game for the Euro 2016 tournament and the game against Spain is a friendly.
Tim Krul and Daryl Janmaat have been called up for the squad and it’s good to see Daryl called up and we hope he makes the final squad after being left out of the squad for the last couple of International breaks.
Janmaat is having a great first season at Newcastle at right back, and he has one goal and two assists and he has quickly settled in the Premier league, and the Dutchman has been one of Newcastle’s best players this season.
Tim Krul is also have another food season for us and it would be great if both can pick up caps during the upcoming International break.
And Luuk de Jong must be doing better at PSV than he did at Newcastle last year at this time because he also gets a call-up.
Luuk has 21 goals in 35 appearances for PSV this season, but he never looked like scoring for Newcastle on his loan spell last season, but it’s good for him that he seems to have regained his confidence this season.
This is the 28 man squad Guus announced today:
Goalkeepers: Jasper Cillissen (Ajax), Tim Krul (Newcastle United), Kenneth Vermeer (Feyenoord), Jeroen Zoet (PSV)
Defenders: Gregory van der Wiel (Paris Saint Germain), Ron Vlaar (Aston Villa), Stefan de Vrij (Lazio), Daley Blind (Manchester United), Daryl Janmaat (Newcastle United), Jetro Willems (PSV), Jeffery Bruma (PSV), Ricardo van Rhijn (Ajax), Joel Veltman (Ajax), Sven van Beek (Feyenoord)
Midfielders: Wesley Sneijder (Galatasaray), Nigel de Jong (AC Milan), Georginio Wijnaldum (PSV), Jordy Clasie (Feyenoord), Leroy Fer (Queens Park Rangers)
Forwards: Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich), Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Schalke 04), Ibrahim Affelay (Olympiakos), Eljero Elia (Southampton), Memphis Depay (PSV), Luciano Narsingh (PSV), Luuk de Jong (PSV), Quincy Promes (Spartak Moscow), Bas Dost (Wolfsburg)
