Bosvelt is still hopeful of securing a place on the plane to Portugal, but his lack of regular action for Manchester City resulted in Advocaat overlooking him for selection.
However, withdrawals by key players have handed Bosvelt an unexpected chance and he will look to prove himself still capable of performing on the international stage.
Barcelona pair Edgar Davids and Philip Cocu picked up knocks against Real Madrid on Sunday and will not feature.
The Barca pair have been joined on the sidelines by Andy van der Meyde and Ruud van Nistelrooy who failed to feature for Internazionale and Manchester United respectively at the weekend.
