The big news from Advocaat’s pre-selection is that Chelsea defender Nathan Ake is in line for his first cap, possibly to stave off interest in the youngster from the Ivory Coast, while Groningen goalkeeper Sergio Padt also gets his first call-up.

Daryl Janmaat, Marten de Roon, Jurgen Locadia and Marco van Ginkel are all recalled to the national team squad too after missing the last few matches. Netherlands face Morocco on the 31st of May, Ivory Coast four days later and then prepare for their next World Cup qualifier against Luxembourg on June the 9th.

The final selection will be announced on Thursday, May 25th, a day after Ajax face Manchester United in the Europa League final.
