Tottenham’s Michel Vorm and Chelsea’s on-loan Marco van Ginkel called up to Holland squad to face England

27 Mar

Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm and PSV Eindhoven midfielder Marco van Ginkel have been called into Danny Blind’s 22-man Holland squad for Tuesday night’s friendly against England at Wembley.

Vorm, 32, back-up to Hugo Lloris at White Hart Lane and restricted to just one Barclay’s Premier League appearance this season, has been drafted in as a replacement for Ajax’s Jasper Cillessen, who broke his nose in training.

Vorm’s last appearance for Holland was as an 89th-minute substitute against Brazil in the 2014 World Cup finals.

Van Ginkel, on loan from Chelsea, is a straight replacement for Ajax skipper Davy Klaassen, who has withdrawn due to a knee injury, and he could make his first appearance for his country since a 1-1 draw in Portugal in August 2013.

Wesley Sneijder, who captained Holland in the recent 3-2 defeat to France, was forced to pull out of the Amsterdam training camp on Saturday with a hamstring injury.
