Hiddink names Willems, Rhijn in Netherlands squad

07 November 2014, 16:21

THE HAGUE — Coach Guus Hiddink has included in-form defenders Jetro Willems and Ricardo van Rhijn in the Netherlands squad for a friendly against Mexico and a crucial European Championship clash with Latvia.

Hiddink is off to a dismal start since taking over from Louis van Gaal, who led the Netherlands to third place at the World Cup in Brazil.

His team has lost to the Czech Republic and Iceland and beaten Kazakhstan to be third in Group A after three matches. They also lost a friendly to Italy.

It is the first call-up of the year for wing backs Willems of PSV Eindhoven and Van Rhijn of Ajax.

Hiddink is trying to shore up a defense that has repeatedly conceded early goals while also sticking to his attacking philosophy.
