Koeman said, “Of course, Blind’s choices become more limited, but I think there is also some good players that are not called, but who do belong there.”

After naming Pieters, he added, “Playing every week for two or three years at Stoke City and he is doing just fine. What is the reason for not selecting that boy?

Koeman was overlooked for the Netherlands job in favour of Guus Hiddink when Louis van Gaal stepped down. The 53-year-old is still looking to take charge of Oranje in the future, “If I get a chance to be coach of Orange, I would still love to do it”
