TEAM NEWS: Klaas-Jan Huntelaar spearheads Netherlands' attack in Euro 2012 qualifier against Finland

The Dutch national team coach has made the decision to give the Schalke hitman the nod up front as they aim to maintain their perfect score
Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk has decided to start Tuesday's Euro 2012 qualifier against Finland in an attacking 4-2-3-1 formation.

PSV youngster Kevin Strootman partners the experienced Mark van Bommel in midfield in the absence of Rafael van der Vaart and Nigel de Jong.

Furthermore, the injured Arjen Robben's place has been taken by Robin van Persie, who starts from the right wing.

Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar will be his side's main attacking threat as the prolific hitman aims to add to his tally of 10 goals in five Euro 2012 qualification appearances.

Finland tactician Mixu Paatelainen has fielded several players who have previously played in Holland or still play in the Eredivisie with the likes of Petri Pasanen, Niklas Moisander, Perparim Hetemaj and Kari Arkivuo all meeting a few familiar faces.

Paatelainen will be hoping that striker Mikael Forssell, currently without a club, can add to his tally of seven goals in seven outings this qualification campaign.

Finland Starting XI: Hradecky; Pasanen, Moisander, Toivio, Eremenko, Hetemaj, Forssell, Pukki, Arkivuo, Ring, Hamalainen

Netherlands Starting XI: Stekelenburg; Van der Wiel, Mathijsen, Heitinga, Pieters; Van Bommel, Strootman; Van Persie, Sneijder, Kuyt; Huntelaar
