Published Add your comment

Holland coach Marco van Basten has admitted he is unlikely to spring any surprises when he names his provisional squad for Euro 2008 on Tuesday.

The Oranje boss will announce a list of 30 players, which will then be whittled down to 23 by the May 28 deadline set by UEFA, and told the Dutch FA´s official website,, that his squad will probably not contain any unexpected names.

"That would not make sense," said the coach. "We have been able to form a reasonably concrete squad over the past four years. And we are close to the start of Euro 2008."
