Van Gaal also added Jordy Clasie to his temporary roster. The midfielder last played for the national football team in November 2016. Ryan Gravenburch is not on the provisional list. There is also no place for Donny van de Beek. The midfielder has played a lot of time in recent weeks at Everton, which he has hired from Manchester United.
The Netherlands will train against Denmark on Saturday 26 March at the Johan Cruyff Arena. Three days later, Germany became the opponent in Amsterdam. Van Gaal will announce his final roster on Friday, March 18th.
The national coach would likely use practice matches against the Danes and Germans to train on a system of three defenders. He believes that this way of playing has the best chance of winning the World Cup in Qatar at the end of this year.
Denmark and Germany are Orange’s last opponents in the run-up to the Nations League. Van Gaal’s side will start on June 3 with an away game against the Belgians and will visit Wales three days later. Then there are two home matches with Poland (10 June) and Wales (13 June) on the programme.

Gravenberch in Young Orange after his absence from the Dutch national team
Gravenberch is included in the Dutch national team’s preliminary selection for the European Championship qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland. The 19-year-old Amsterdammer has been with the Dutch national team during previous international matches, but Van Gaal has now not named the Ajax player in his pre-selection. Gravenberch has been off the bench for several matches with his club in recent weeks, when Davy Klassen was the favourite.
Sven Putman is back in the pre-selection of the Dutch juniors. The Lille defender missed international matches in November due to injury. Erwin van de Loy also included Jean-Paul van Heck (Blackburn Rovers FC), Ellis Tavsan (NEC) and Thomas Boetenck (Vitesse) in the group of 30. That will be reduced to 23 in two weeks.
The Dutch Juniors will play against Bulgaria on March 25 and at home against Switzerland on March 29. Switzerland is at the top of the group and the Netherlands has 3 points less, having played one game less. The top group and best number two qualify for next year’s European Championships in Georgia and Romania. For the other 2 numbers, there are still playoffs to qualify.
