Marco van Basten says Edgar Davids still has an international future.Netherlands coach Marco van Basten has suggested that Edgar Davids will come into consideration for the national team when he gets more games under his belt for Tottenham.
Davids was overlooked for selection for next week's World Cup qualifier with Armenia, but the international door has not been closed on the midfielder.
"In the past six months he has played one and a half games," said van Basten. "That is too little to select him now.
"Davids was not part of a short list, but he is on our long list."
Van Basten has warned Davids that he will have to impress for Tottenham if he is to win his place back in the Oranje team.
"We have more than one player already that can play left on the midfield," said van Basten.
"Our group is big - but I do see that Davids' qualities can be of importance for any team."
