Two Arsenal players have been selected by coach Arjan van den Laan in his 23 player squad for the upcoming international friendlies.

Goalkeeper Sari Van Veenendaal and defender/midfielder Dominique Janssen have been called-up for the games away to France on the 23rd October and away to Poland on the 27th October.

The former Arsenal Academy player Renee Slegers is back in the Netherlands’ squad after a year out due to injury.

Netherlands are hosting the Euros in 2017 and therefore are playing friendlies in preparation for the tournament.

They will also host the UEFA Olympic Games play-off next year as, due to politics between the home nations, Team GB, that qualified on the pitch, will not be entering a team in Rio.

Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and Switzerland  will compete for the final place to play alongside France and Germany at the 2016 Olympic Games tournament.
