Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal has finalised his squad ahead of next month’s World Cup.

Six Premier League-based Dutch stars will be heading to Brazil.

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie, Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul and Aston Villa defender Ron Vlaar all survived as Van Gaal cut his preliminary squad down to a final 23.

Swansea City duo Michel Vorm and Jonathan de Guzman, along with midfielder Leroy Fer of recently relegated Norwich City, also remain.

However, Chelsea left-back Patrick van Aanholt got the chop, as did Jeroen Zoet, Quincy Promes, Jean-Paul Boetius, Karim Rekik and Tonny Vilhena.

Below is the squad in full.
