Chelsea left-back Patrick van Aanholt, who has spent the season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem, is the sole Premier League representative in the 23-man party heading to Israel in June.

Among the ones to watch in the Dutch squad is highly-rated PSV Eindhoven midfielder Kevin Strootman, who was with the Oranje at Euro 2012 and has reportedly been tracked by Manchester United and a host of other top European clubs.

Left-back Daley Blind, the son of former Holland and Ajax left-back Danny, is also included, while FC Twente's Leroy Fer came close to joining Everton in January only to see the transfer fall through.

Holland are up against Germany, Spain and Russia in Group B at the Under-21 Euros, which get underway on 5 June.

Goalkeepers: Marco Bizot (Groningen), Nick Marsman (FC Twente), Jeroen Zoet (PSV Eindhoven).

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.
