Netherlands' manager Louis van Gaal has decided to recall Wesley Sneijder and Nigel De Jong to his side for the World Cup qualifiers against Hungary and Turkey next month.

Both of the players have been in international exile for over a year, with Sneijder only playing when Georginio Wijnaldum has been injured and unavailable. 

Paris Saint Germain wing-back Gregory van der Wiel also returns to the national fold, having missed the last few squads through injury.

Despite missing United's loss to Manchester City at the weekend, and the Capital One Cup clash with Liverpool tonight, Robin Van Persie has been selected for the Dutch squad.

Key players Arjen Robben and Kevin Strootman are both included and the Dutch will be relying on them to secure wins against Hungary and Turkey, even though they have already secured qualification.

The Netherlands squad is as follows:

Goalkeepers: Tim Krul (Newcastle United), Michel Vorm (Swansea City), Jeroen Zoet (PSV).

Defence: Daley Blind (Ajax), Jeffrey Bruma (PSV), Daryl Janmaat, Bruno Martins Indi, Stefan de Vrij (Feyenoord), Paul Verhaegh (FC Augsburg), Ron Vlaar (Aston Villa), Gregory van der Wiel (Paris Saint-Germain), Jetro Willems (PSV).

Midfield: Jordy Clasie (Feyenoord), Jonathan de Guzman (Swansea City), Nigel de Jong (AC Milan), Stijn Schaars (PSV), Wesley Sneijder (Galatasaray), Kevin Strootman (AS Roma), Rafael van der Vaart (HSV)

Attack: Dirk Kuyt (Fenerbahce), Jeremain Lens (Dinamo Kiev), Robin van Persie (Manchester United), Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich), Ruben Schaken (Feyenoord), Ricky van Wolfswinkel (Norwich City).
