Patrick van Aanholt: Called up to Holland squad

Van Aanholt, who is on loan at Vitesse from Chelsea, joins a 22-man Oranje squad after fellow left-backs Martins Indi (muscle) and Willems (knee) left the Noordwijk training camp on Sunday.

A statement published on knvb.nl confirmed Feyenoord's Martins Indi had strained a muscle in training while Willems, of PSV Eindhoven, hurt his knee during Saturday's 2-2 friendly draw with Japan.

Van Aanholt, 23, is currently enjoying a second season on loan with Eredivisie outfit Vitesse, who are the surprise leaders of the Dutch league having taken 24 points from 13 games.

Holland face Colombia at the Amsterdam ArenA on Tuesday night in what is a last international appointment of the year for the 2010 World Cup finalists.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
