It will mean an extended end to the season for Robben, who will feature for Bayern Munich in the Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Van Persie will have had a little more rest after the English Premier League season finished last Sunday with the striker having been part of Manchester United's title-winning team.

It was the 29-year-old's first silverware since he won the FA Cup with Arsenal in 2005.

Other established players called up by manager Louis van Gaal include Fenerbahce's Dirk Kuyt, Wesley Sneijder of Galatasaray and Hamburg's Rafael van der Vaart.

Van Gaal has, though, handed first call-ups to Lerin Duarte, Miquel Nelom, Dwight Tiendalli and Jens Toornstra.

The Oranje travel to Jakarta to take on Indonesia on Friday June 7 before moving on to Beijing where they will face China the following Tuesday, June 11.

Holland squad: Michel Vorm (Swansea), Kenneth Vermeer (Ajax), Jasper Cillessen (Ajax); John Heitinga (Everton), Erik Pieters, Dwight Tiendalli (Swansea), Ron Vlaar (Aston Villa), Daryl Janmaat (Feyenoord), Miquel Nelom (Feyenoord); Lerin Duarte (Heracles Almelo), Jonathan de Guzman (Swansea), Jens Toornstra, Ruben Schaken (Feyenoord), Wesley Sneijder (Galatasaray), Rafael van der Vaart (Hamburg); Siem de Jong (Ajax), Dirk Kuyt (Fenerbahce), Jeremain Lens, Robin van Persie (Manchester United), Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich), Ricky van Wolfswinkel (Sporting Lisbon).

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
