De Guzman earns Netherlands call

Jonathan de Guzman's recent form for Swansea has earned him a call-up to the Netherlands squad for the friendly match against Italy.

De Guzman is joined in Netherlands squad for the first time by Benfica winger Ola John and Ajax defender Daley Blind who have also caught the eye of coach Louis van Gaal but captain Wesley Sneijder is a notable absentee.

Hamburg's Rafael Van der Vaart, John Heitinga of Everton and Arjen Robben of Bayern Munich also miss out on the 23-man squad for the match which will take place on February 1. FC Twente's Brazilian-born defender Douglas was another player to miss out despite earning his first call-up to the squad in October after being granted Dutch nationality.

Canadian-born De Guzman, who scored twice in Swansea's 3-1 win over Stoke at the weekend, has been eligible for selection by the Oranje since earning Dutch citizenship in 2008 but has so far been overlooked despite impressive spells at Feyenoord, Real Mallorca and Villarreal, whom he left in the summer to join the Swans on a season-long loan.

Full Squad: Krul (Newcastle), Vermeer (Ajax), Vorm (Swansea); Blind (Ajax), Boulahrouz (Sporting Lisbon), Janmaat (Feyenoord), Mathijsen (Feyenoord), Martins Indi (Feyenoord), Van Rhijn (Ajax) De Vrij (Feyenoord); Clasie (Feyenoord), Fer (FC Twente), Van Ginkel (Vitesse Arnhem), De Guzman (Swansea), Maher (AZ Alkmaar), Strootman (PSV Eindhoven); Huntelaar (Schalke), John (Benfica), Kuyt (Fenerbahce), Lens (PSV Eindhoven), Van Persie (Manchester United), Chess (Feyenoord), Van Wolfswinkel (Sporting Lisbon).
