Robben named in Netherlands squad
It is the first time Robben has made a squad since he was injured playing for the Dutch at the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, where they reached the final but lost to Spain.
Otherwise, Van Marwijk's 27-man group is largely notable for the number of players picked despite their failure to regularly get into their club teams.
Ruud van Nistelrooy, Khalid Boulahrouz (both Stuttgart), Ibrahim Afellay (Barcelona), Hedwiges Maduro (Valencia), Urby Emanuelson (AC Milan) and Eljero Elia (Hamburg) have all struggled for playing time of late but have not been overlooked.
The Netherlands play Hungary in Budapest on 25 March and then again four days later in Amsterdam. Van Marwijk's side are top of the Group E standings with 12 points from four games, with Hungary three points behind in second place.
Defenders: Khalid Boulahrouz (VfB Stuttgart), John Heitinga (Everton), Ron Vlaar (Feyenoord), Gregory van der Wiel (Ajax), Urby Emanuelson (AC Milan), Hedwiges Maduro (Valencia), Joris Mathijsen (HSV), Erik Pieters (PSV Eindhoven), Peter Wisgerhof (FC Twente)
Midfielders: Ibrahim Afellay (FC Barcelona), Mark van Bommel (AC Milan), Nigel de Jong (Manchester City), Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich), Wesley Sneijder (Inter Milan), Rafael van der Vaart (Tottenham Hotspur), Theo Janssen (FC Twente), Kevin Strootman (FC Utrecht), Demy de Zeeuw (Ajax)
