The Netherlands squad for the upcoming Nations League games with Poland and Italy was confirmed on Friday by interim head coach Dwight Lodeweges.

Netherlands host Poland on the 4th of September in an empty Johan Cruijff ArenA before Italy visit Amsterdam three days later.

Lodeweges has named three new faces in the squad for the two games with PSV Eindhoven midfielder Mohamed Ihattaren, AZ Alkmaar left-back Owen Wijndal, and Ajax centre-back Daley Blind all given their first call-ups.
