Danny Blind has decided to call-up Manchester United’s Memphis Depay and PSV midfielder Siem de Jong as their replacements. Both have barely featured for the clubs so far this season, but with a lack of other options Blind has decided that the duo can join up with the rest of the squad for training on Monday.

Netherlands continue their World Cup qualifiers with a tie against Belarus on the 6th of October before hosting France at the Amsterdam Arena three days later.
