In an interview with Panna, Hoedt has revealed that he regularly speaks with Lazio teammate and Dutch international Stefan de Vrij about a Netherlands invitation.

He said,  “Stefan is a full Orange International and I try to be.

“I learn from him, he learns from me. So we try to make each other better.

“It’s important that I show in Italy that I deserve a call from the coach. Hard and strong defense, then the rest will come,”

Hoedt has three caps for the Dutch U21’s but has yet to receive a full call-up from Danny Blind. The coach will name his squad soon for the November ties with Belgium and Luxembourg.
