The Dutch national team will close the World Cup qualifying cycle in November with matches against Montenegro and Norway. The Orange squad needs one more win to secure a ticket for the final round in Qatar. Owen Wijndal is again a candidate for this as a left-back. The AZ defender started last summer as a basic player at the European Championship, but was injured just before the start of the new season. In the last six Eredivisie matches, the 21-year-old AZ captain appeared again at the kick-off.
Devyne Rensch also has a chance to win an election. The young right back of Ajax is admittedly a bench seat, but also made the previous international break to the pre-selection. Rensch, however, dropped out at the last minute. Van Gaal selected 25 players for the World Cup qualifiers last time. If he does that again this time, five more players have to be eliminated. Wout Weghorst has also been selected. He is currently in quarantine after a positive corona test.
Goalkeepers: Justin Bijlow (Feyenoord), Joël Drommel (PSV), Mark Flek (SC Freiburg), Tim Krul (Norwich City)

Midfielders: Ryan Gravenberch (Ajax), Frenkie de Jong (Barcelona), Davy Klaassen (Ajax), Teun Koopmeiners (Atalanta Bergamo), Marten de Roon (Atalanta Bergamo), Guus Til (Feyenoord) and Georginio Wijnaldum (Paris Saint-Germain).
Attackers: Steven Berghuis (Ajax), Steven Bergwijn (Tottenham Hotspur), Memphis Depay (Barcelona), Cody Gakpo (PSV), Arnaut Danjuma (Villarreal), Luuk de Jong (Barcelona), Noa Lang (Club Brugge), Donyell Malen (Borussia Dortmund) ), and Wout Weghorst (VfL Wolfsburg).
