Uncapped pair Ola John and Luciano Narsingh were included in the Holland squad for Wednesday’s international friendly against England at Wembley.

Squad: T Krul (Newcastle), M Stekelenburg (Roma), M Vorm (Swansea); K Boulahrouz (Stuttgart), J Bruma (Hamburg), J Heitinga (Everton), J Mathijsen (Malaga), E Pieters (PSV Eindhoven), R Vlaar (Feyenoord); M van Bommel (AC Milan), U Emanuelson (AC Milan), N de Jong (Man City), S Schaars (Sporting Lisbon), W Sneijder (Inter Milan), K Strootman (PSV), R van der Vaart (Tottenham), G Wijnaldum (PSV); K Huntelaar (Schalke), O John (FC Twente), L de Jong (FC Twente), D Kuyt (Liverpool), L Narsingh (Heerenveen), R van Persie (Arsenal), A Robben (Bayern Munich).
