Louis van Gaal announces young Dutch World Cup squad, Van Perise & Sneijder in, no Kevin Strootman (injured)
Louis van Gaal has announced his World Cup squad, and if there’s one theme to emerge, it’s ‘Give Youth a Chance’, with the youngest Dutch squad in living memory.
Compared to the halcyon days of your De Boers and your Kluiverts, it’s remarkably lacking in household names, with De Jong, Sneijder, van Persie, van der Vaart and Robben forming the experienced nucleus.
Beyond that core, it’s an incredibly youthful squad, with PSV’s exciting winger Memphis Depay and Man City’s Karim Rekik – just 19 and one cap! – among the kids.
Kevin Strootman, still recovering from injury, hasn’t been risked as it looks as though he won’t recover in time.
