New Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman has named a 33-man preliminary squad for this month’s friendlies against England and Portugal, including a first call up for Justin Kluivert whose father Patrick was a national team stalwart. The Ajax Amsterdam teenager was one of seven players to receive a first call up on Wednesday as new coach Koeman refreshes the squad after taking over last month following their failure to qualify for this year’s World Cup in Russia.
