lachman tweWhen Patrick Kluivert was named Curacao advisor earlier this month he set his sights on convincing a number of Dutch born players to switch their allegiances to the Caribbean nation.

Call ups for Aston Villa’s Leandro Bacuna, Vitesse’s Eloy Room, and former NAC winger Elson Hooi may have failed for now, but Kluivert has been able to call up seven Eredivisie players, with the likes of Twente centre back Darryl Lachman, and NAC duo Guyon Fernandez and Felitciano Zschusschen set to earn their first caps.

The full squad is as follows:

Goalkeepers: Rowendy Sumter (Jong Holland), Jarzinho Pieter (Centro Dominguito), Zeus de la Paz (Jong PSV)

Defenders: Cuco Martina (Twente), Darryl Lachman (Twente), Jason Wall (Willem II), Shelton Martis (Osotspa), Luidjino Hoyer (Centro Dominguito), Gillian Justiana (Helmond Sport), Dustley Mulder (Apollon), Sorandley Tomsjansen (Hubetut Fortuna)

Midfielders: Papito Merencia (ADO Den Haag), Gianluca Maria (MVV Maastricht), Shanon Carmelia (JVC), Germaine Agustein (Brighton), Ayrton Statie (Den Bosch)
