Van Gaal names four new faces in strong squad

Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie are among a strong 21-man Netherlands squad selected for the upcoming friendlies against Indonesia and China PR which also features four debutants.

It will mean an extended end to the season for Robben, who is expected to feature for Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Van Persie will have had a little more rest after the Premier League season finished last Sunday with the striker having been part of Manchester United's title-winning team. It was the 29-year-old's first silverware since he won the FA Cup with Arsenal in 2005.

Other established players called up by manager Louis van Gaal include Fenerbahce's Dirk Kuyt, Wesley Sneijder of Galatasaray and Hamburg's Rafael van der Vaart.

Van Gaal has, though, handed first call-ups to Lerin Duarte, Miquel Nelom, Dwight Tiendalli and Jens Toornstra.

The Oranje travel to Jakarta to take on the Indonesians on Friday 7 June, before moving on to Beijing where they will face the Chinese the following Tuesday.
