Ronald Koeman has called up AZ Alkmaar goalkeeper Marco Bizot into the Netherlands squad to replace the unfit Kenneth Vermeer.

It was a surprise that Bizot was not originally chosen in the Netherlands squad, with Koeman preferring Jasper Cillessen, Vermeer, and Jeroen Zoet, who has fallen down the pecking order at PSV after some horrible performances recently.

However, Vermeer is not fit and has decided to pull out of the squad, meaning Bizot has now got the call-up his performances have deserved.

Netherlands face Northern Ireland on Saturday with a tie against Estonia three days later.
