Virgil van Dijk, Netherlands teammates face darts star Michael van Gerwen
With a couple of friendlies coming up, Netherlands invited a special guest along to their training camp on Monday to help the players keep their eye in.
Ronald Koeman welcomed darts champion Michael van Gerwen to the centre in Vlijmen and it wasn't long before Virgil van Dijk and Kevin Strootman were grabbing photos with the 29-year-old.

According to Omroep Brabant, Wout Weghorst showed the most dart prowess on the day, with the AZ striker managing to win one leg against Van Gerwen.
"It was fun and friendly, that's what it's all about," said Van Gerwen after the event.
Netherlands are set to play a double-header of friendlies over the next week or so, starting with a trip to Slovakia on Thursday night.
