The Dutch play Croatia in a friendly at the Poljud Stadium on Wednesday and Van Basten has no less than nine midfielders at his disposal, with a number of senior players, including Ruud van Nistelrooy, Clarence Seedorf and Edwin van der Sar, endorsing a 4-2-3-1 formation.
"It´s not important what you call it. The point is that on our way to the tournament we need to have a model which everyone is comfortable with and which is common at most clubs," Van Basten said.
