Tim Krul

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Club Reporter

 

Tim Krul has been named in the Netherlands squad for their friendly against England at Wembley on Wednesday (29th February).

The 23-year-old has been an ever-present for Newcastle in the Premier League this season and has caught the eye with some outstanding performances, helping the Magpies to a current standing of sixth in the top flight.

Krul has two senior international caps to his name - both of which came last summer - and has been a regular inclusion in their squads over the past eight months.

On Wednesday night he will face competition for the goalkeeping spot from Swansea's Michel Vorm and experienced Roma stopper Maarten Stekelenburg.

Six other Premier League players join Krul in the Holland squad for the fixture against the Three Lions - John Heitinga (Everton), Nigel De Jong (Manchester CIty), Dirk Kuyt (Liverpool), Robin Van Persie (Arsenal), Rafael Van Der Vaart (Tottenham) and Michel Vorm (Swansea).
