thumbnail Hello,

Michel Vorm, Ron Vlaar, Marco van Ginkel, Jonathan de Guzman, Robin van Persie and Ricky van Wolfswinkel could all face Portugal just three days before the start of the new season

Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal has called up six Premier League players for August's international friendly against Portugal.

Michel Vorm, Ron Vlaar, Marco van Ginkel, Jonathan de Guzman, Robin van Persie and Ricky van Wolfswinkel have all been included in the provisional 26-man squad.

Fulham goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg and Everton defender John Heitinga have been left out, while Tim Krul of Newcastle has been omitted due to fitness issues.

Former captain Wesley Sneijder is out with injury concerns, while promising youngsters Adam Maher and Tonny Vilhena received a call-up.

Augsburg defender Paul Verhaegh has made the Netherlands squad for the first time and could make his Oranje debut on August 14.
