Footballers Stephen Bergwijn of Almere and Lilestedling Devin Rench withdrew from the final selection for the Dutch national team. He picked national duo coach Louis van Gaal last month, but now favors other players.
Rench, who plays for Ajax, recently made his debut in the match against Turkey in Orange. The defender has not been a regular fixture for the Amsterdam side in recent weeks. Last Monday, he played with Jong Ajax in the Kitchen Champion division. Rensch was called up for Jong Oranje.
Bergwijn has often been part of the Dutch national team in recent years, but he missed the European Championship this year. This time, the Tottenham Hotspur striker will miss the qualifying matches due to injury. Therefore, national coach Van Gaal called up newcomer Noa Lang.
Orange will play Latvia in the World Cup qualifiers next week (Away, on October 8). The return match against Gibraltar is scheduled for October 11th.
In addition to Rensch, Hertha BSC’s Jurgen Ekkelenkamp has also been called up for juniors. De Almeerder has been playing in Berlin since this summer.
