KUYT CALL-UP, CASTELEN FRUSTRATION

Holland coach Marco van Basten has unsurprisingly named the Eredivisie’s top scorer Dirk Kuyt in his squad to face Finland and Romania in the country’s up-and-coming World Cup double-header, but Romeo Castelen will be disappointed, because he has been overlooked for the two Germany 2006 qualifiers. Ex-Feyenoord starlet Robin van Persie is also part of Van Basten’s selection. Castelen may still get a chance to add to his international cap collection however, as he’s on the standby list.

The full squad:

Goal: Van der Sar (Fulham), Timmer (AZ)
Defence: Boulahrouz (Hamburger SV), Melchiot (Birmingham City), Bouma, Ooijer, Lucius (all PSV), Van Bronckhorst (Barcelona), De Jong, Heitinga (both Ajax), Opdam, Vlaar (both AZ)
Midfield: Van Bommel, Cocu (both PSV), Maduro, Van der Vaart (both Ajax), Landzaat (AZ)
Attack: Van Nistelrooy (Manchester United), Robben (Chelsea), Babel (Ajax), Vennegoor (PSV), Kuyt (Feyenoord), Makaay (Bayern Munich), Van Persie (Arsenal)
