Dutch name 35-man squad
Holland coach Bert van Marwijk has named a preliminary squad of 35 players ahead of next month's European Championships.
Van Marwijk had initially also called up PSV Eindhoven's Erik Pieters, but the defender later pulled out because tests showed he would not recover from a foot injury in time.
Pieters has played 15 internationals since making his debut in 2010 and was considered Van Marwijk's first choice at left-back.
Van Marwijk said that Pieters' absence was bad news for his team's preparations "but it is particularly bitter news for Erik".
Ibrahim Afellay has been called up despite his season with Barcelona having been severely disrupted by a knee injury.
Van Marwijk said: "We still have the Dutch play-offs, foreign leagues and cup finals as well as the final of the Champions League.
"Furthermore, there are players coming back from injuries.
"But it is a great opportunity to see these players close up."
Holland will face Denmark, Germany and Portugal in Group B, with all the Dutch fixtures to be played at the Metalist Stadium in Kharkiv.
