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

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Van Ginkel, on loan from Chelsea, is a straight replacement for Ajax skipper Davy Klaassen, who has withdrawn due to a knee injury, and he could make his first appearance for his country since a 1-1 draw in Portugal in August 2013.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