Depay and Simons, summoned for the World Cup in Holland 2022

Van Dijk, Depay and Malacia have been named in the squad, along with 19-year-old PSV midfielder Simons, who has not been capped.

Barcelona striker Memphis Depay has been included in the Netherlands’ 26-man squad despite not playing since being injured against Poland in September.

Several other high-profile players have been added to this year’s World Cup squad, including Liverpool centre-back Virgil van Dijk and Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

Manager Louis Van Gaal also named 19-year-old wunderkind Xavi Simons in his squad. The midfielder with no international coverage joined Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven from PSG in June and has scored an impressive eight goals in 13 league games.

There will be no place for Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek, who has only made a handful of appearances for his club this season. Van Gaal, a former Manchester United manager, also left out goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen, who was part of the Dutch team that finished third in the 2014 World Cup.
