The United States fixture is vital preparation for Dick Advocaat's squad as they look forward to the Euro 2004 finals in Portugal.
Michael Reiziger suffered a thigh problem during Barcelona's win over Atletico Madrid on Sunday and Ajax youngster de Jong has been drafted in as his replacement.
It is the first time the 19-year-old has been called into the full Oranje squad and he links up with team-mate John Heitinga, another new face in Advocaat's plans.
Feyenoord winger Robin van Persie, who was on stand-by, has not been promoted to the full squad for the Amsterdam clash.
