Edwin van der Sar has returned from injury to take his place with the Holland squad.
The Manchester United number one missed Saturday's disappointing 0-0 draw with Romania in Rotterdam.
However, he has now sufficiently overcome a calf problem and will link-up with the Oranje party before their trip to Slovenia on Wednesday.
Ajax's Maarten Stekelenburg was given the nod ahead of Henk Timmer against Romania, but Marco van Basten will re-install Van der Sar on Wednesday.
Van Basten has also opted to drop three players from his original squad.
Wigan's Denny Landzaat, Kew Jaliens and Tim de Cler have all been axed.
