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.

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
