Holland coach Marco van Basten has trimmed his provisional European Championships squad from 29 men to 26 ahead of revealing his final selection later this month.

Ajax defender Urby Emanuelson, Kew Jailens of AZ Alkmaar, Hedwiges Maduro of Valencia and PSV Eindhoven forward Danny Koevermans have all been dropped from the squad, with Sevilla defender Khalid Boulahrouz invited to join a pre-tournament training camp.

Boulahrouz has only just returned to action after a long period out with a groin injury and the Holland coaching staff want to assess his fitness level.
