Nigel de Jong selected for Dutch eleven

26th January 2011, Comments 0 comments


Nigel de Jong is returning to Holland's national squad. Manager Bert van Marwijk has added him to the line-up for a friendly match against Austria on 9 February.

De Jong, a midfielder with Manchester City, had not been selected since he committed a serious foul during the English competition, mirroring his heavy-handed behaviour during the World Cup final in 2010.

Other players selected by Van Marwijk for the Austria match are FC Twente's Luuk de Jong and FC Utrecht's Kevin Strootman.
