dost wolfsThe Netherlands first fixtures of the new year are a few weeks away, and Wolfsburg striker Bas Dost may well get his first chance to shine for his country, with the striker being in the best form of his career.

The only notable name omitted from the list is Robin Van Persie, who is currently injured. This is a pre-selection, so if the striker soon becomes fit, he may earn a place on the list. One surprise inclusion is QPR midfielder Leroy Fer, who has been sidelined with a knee injury for the past month, and has yet to make his return.

The Netherlands face Turkey in an important Euro 2016 Qualifier March 28, and Spain in a friendly on March 31.

Full selection, which will be cut over the next two weeks:

Goalkeepers: Jasper Cillissen (Ajax), Tim Krul (Newcastle United), Kenneth Vermeer (Feyenoord), Jeroen Zoet (PSV)

Defenders: Gregory van der Wiel (Paris Saint Germain), Ron Vlaar (Aston Villa), Stefan de Vrij (Lazio), Daley Blind (Manchester United), Daryl Janmaat (Newcastle United), Jetro Willems (PSV), Jeffery Bruma (PSV), Ricardo van Rhijn (Ajax), Joel Veltman (Ajax), Sven van Beek (Feyenoord)

Midfielders: Wesley Sneijder (Galatasaray), Nigel de Jong (AC Milan), Georginio Wijnaldum (PSV), Jordy Clasie (Feyenoord), Leroy Fer (Queens Park Rangers)

Forwards: Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich), Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Schalke 04), Ibrahim Affelay (Olympiakos), Eljero Elia (Southampton), Memphis Depay (PSV), Luciano Narsingh (PSV), Luuk de Jong (PSV), Quincy Promes (Spartak Moscow), Bas Dost (Wolfsburg)
