Ronald Koeman has named his provisional Netherlands squad for the final two Euro 2020 qualifiers and AZ Alkmaar talent Calvin Stengs is included for the first time.

Netherlands travel to Northern Ireland on the 16th of November before a home match with Estonia three days later. One win in those two matches will seal Netherlands place at the Euros next summer.

Ronald Koeman has decided to hand a first call-up to AZ Alkmaar sensation Calvin Stengs, who takes the place of the injured Steven Bergwijn.

The 20-year-old winger has been in excellent form so far this season with eight goals and ten assists in all competitions.

Donyell Malen is also included despite missing PSV’s last two matches with an ankle issue.

Not included are Roma winger Justin Kluivert and Huddersfield Town defender Terence Kongolo. Despite his penalty heroics at the weekend, Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul must also wait for a recall.
