De Guzman said, “I have let everyone know I am happy here, so let’s see what happens. They are great people, great players and a great club. I suppose I am all smiles.”

After being left out of the last Netherlands squad for the friendly defeat to France, De Guzman is still hopeful of making the squad for this summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

He added, “You know people are watching so you want to put on a good performance. I’m trying my best, trying to get that spot,”

“I was left out of the last squad but hopefully this sort of form will help.

“It’s a motivation for me. The coach told me I’m not forgotten but I know things haven’t been going well at Swansea so it’s another motivation to work harder. I just have to let my feet do the talking.

“It’s hard not to have the World Cup in your mind. Everyone’s reminding me, family and friends, everyone wants me to be out there. Hopefully I can make it.”
