The Vitesse midfielder and Ajax defender have both been rewarded for their good run of form so far this term, while Arjen Robben and Tim Krul return to the team
Van Gaal has somewhat surprisingly opted to include left-back Daley Blind, following the Ajax starlet's run of good form, while Vitesse wonderkid Marco van Ginkel has also made the cut.
Furthermore, the flamboyant trainer has recalled goalkeeper Tim Krul after the Newcastle United goalkeeper missed Oranje's last few games due to injury, while Arjen Robben, Stefan de Vrij and Bas Dost have all earned recalls after shaking off their respective physical problems.
Inter star Wesley Sneijder is the most notable absentee for the match at the Amsterdam ArenA as the playmaker is still recovering from a thigh injury.
Netherlands were beaten 2-1 by their arch-rivals at Euro 2012, and will be gunning for revenge in two weeks' time.
