Ronald Koeman has confirmed his Netherlands squad for the final two UEFA Nations League group games against France and Germany. 

Currently sitting second in the group, Netherlands host France next Friday before travelling to Germany three days later. At least a draw in either game should prevent Oranje from being relegated, while two wins would see Netherlands head into the playoffs as winners.

Koeman has decided to hand a first call-up to Hertha Berlin winger Javairo Dilrosun, who has been in great form since leaving Manchester City for Germany in the summer. PSV trio Steven Bergwijn, Pablo Rosario and Denzel Dumfries all retain their places after making their debuts last month.

Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld misses out due to fitness concerns, while Justin Bijlow, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Hans Hateboer, Wesley Hoedt, Wout Weghorst and Ruud Vormer have all been dropped from the provisional squad.

The full squad is as follows:

Goalkeepers: Marco Bizot (AZ), Jasper Cillessen (Barcelona), Jeroen Zoet (PSV).

Defenders: Patrick van Aanholt (Crystal Palace), Nathan Aké (Bournemouth), Daley Blind (Ajax), Virgil van Dijk (Liverpool), Denzel Dumfries (PSV), Matthijs de Ligt (Ajax), Kenny Tete (Olympique Lyon), Stefan de Vrij (Internazionale).

Midfielders Donny van de Beek (Ajax), Frenkie de Jong (Ajax), Marten de Roon (Atalanta), Pablo Rosario (PSV), Kevin Strootman (Olympique Marseille), Tonny Vilhena (Feyenoord), Georginio Wijnaldum (Liverpool).

Attackers: Ryan Babel (Besiktas), Steven Bergwijn (PSV), Memphis Depay (Olympique Lyon), Javairô Dilrosun (Hertha BSC), Luuk de Jong (PSV), Quincy Promes (Sevilla)
