thumbnail Hello,

The former Bayern Munich and AC Milan midfielder's time with the national team appears to have come to an end after he was not included in Louis van Gaal's first squad

PSV midfielder Mark van Bommel has been left out of Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal's 32-man squad for the friendly match against Belgium on August 15.

The 35-year-old midfielder had been the captain of the Oranje squad under former boss Bert van Marwijk and received widespread criticism for his performances in the team's disastrous Euro 2012 campaign.

He has now been omitted from Van Gaal's first squad in charge as the 60-year-old aims to rejuvenate the side.

There are several players on the list, including Wolfsburg striker Bas Dost, Feyenoord defender Jordy Clasie and Ajax's Ricardo van Rhijn, who could make their debuts for the national side.

Netherlands will take on Turkey, Hungary, Romania, Estonia and Andorra in their World Cup 2014 qualifying group.
