Holland will be at full strength for the World Cup final on Sunday after star player Wesley Sneijder shrugged off a calf problem.
The Inter Milan midfielder, who is in the running for the golden boot with five goals to his name, had not trained since Holland's semi-final win over Uruguay through on-going cramp.
However, the 26-year-old will not allow the injury to prevent him from facing Spain on the biggest stage of all as both sides bid to lift the trophy for the first time.
"Everyone is fully fit," said Dutch boss Bert van Marwijk, who has no suspensions for the showdown.
Goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has recovered from a hip injury and will maintain his position while Gregory Van der Wiel and Nigel de Jong are back in contention for a start after serving one-match suspensions.
