08 March 2017 04:08

Holland coach Danny Blind has named seven England-based players in his provisional squad for the World Cup qualifier against Bulgaria and friendly against Italy later this month.

Vincent Janssen, struggling for goals at Tottenham, is included, along with White Hart Lane team-mate Michel Vorm.

Manchester United's Daley Blind - son of the manager - is among the defenders, along with Stoke's Bruno Martins Indi and Swansea's Leroy Fer.

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum is also on the 27-man list, along with Middlesbrough's Marten de Roon.

Danny Blind stressed the group was not finalised, saying on www.knvb.nl: "I have a number of players, including (Galatasaray midfielder) Wesley Sneijder, not put on the provisional list because they are not 100 per cent fit at the moment.

"And the Dutch team requires fitness. We need to look at these players over the next 10 days to see whether it will be feasible to call them up."

Holland play Bulgaria on March 25 in Sofia and then face Italy three days later at the Amsterdam ArenA.
