Van Basten: Ready for Romania test
Holland have recalled Klaas Jan Huntelaar and Arjen Robben to their squad for their Euro 2008 qualifiers against Romania and Slovenia.
Huntelaar has not played for Holland since July, but the Eredivisie's top scorer is now back in the reckoning along with Real Madrid's Robben.
Robben's inclusion will bolster the squad especially as both Wesley Sneijder and Robin van Persie are suspended for the clash in Romania - although they are both available for the match with Slovenia.
Coach Marco van Basten has named seven British-based players in his squad.
Squad in full: Edwin van der Sar (Manchester United), Maarten Stekelenburg (Ajax), Henk Timmer (Feyenoord); Khalid Boulahrouz (Sevilla), Wilfred Bouma (Aston Villa), Urby Emanuelson (Ajax), John Heitinga (Ajax), Kew Jaliens (AZ Alkmaar), Joris Mathijsen (Hamburg), Mario Melchiot (Wigan), Andre Ooijer (Blackburn); Giovanni van Bronckhorst (Feyenoord), Nigel de Jong (Hamburg), Hedwiges Maduro (Ajax), Clarence Seedorf (Milan), Wesley Sneijder (Real Madrid), Rafael van der Vaart (Hamburg), Demy de Zeeuw (AZ Alkmaar), Ryan Babel (Liverpool), Klaas Jan Huntelaar (Ajax), Dirk Kuyt (Liverpool), Ruud van Nistelrooy (Real Madrid), Robin van Persie (Arsenal), Arjen Robben (Real Madrid).
