Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk has made the decision to give Arjen Robben the nod at the left wing instead of Rafael van der Vaart, who is being plagued by a calf injury. Additionally, Gregory van der Wiel has returned to the starting XI after being rested in the match against Cameroon.
Line-up: Stekelenburg; Van der Wiel, Heitinga, Mathijsen, Van Bronckhorst; De Jong, Van Bommel; Kuyt, Sneijder, Robben; Van Persie
Slovakian gaffer Vladimir Weiss has made one change compared to the team that beat Italy. The suspended Zdenko Strba has been replaced with the more attack minded Vladimir Weiss jr., meaning that the Slovakians will play in a rather attacking formation.
Line-up: Mucha; Pekarik, Skrtel, Durica, Zabavnik; Kucka, Hamsik; Weiss, Jendrisek, Stoch; Vittek
