THE NETHERLANDS - The members of the Dutch football team have gathered at their training camp to prepare for June's European Cup.
But national coach Marco van Basten is still missing five key players. Wesley Sneijder, Ruud van Nistelrooij en Arjen Robben still have commitments with Real Madrid, while Manchester United goalkeeper, Edwin van der Sar, and Celtic striker Jan Vennegor of Hesselink also have to return.
Marco van Basten will announce his final team next week, after the Dutch play a practice international against Ukraine.
