Steven Berghuis of AZ Alkmaar and Groningen's Tjaronn Chery were called up for the first time as the Netherlands named 30 players on Friday for a training camp ahead of next month's vital Euro 2016 qualifier in Latvia.

Champions PSV Eindhoven have eight players in the squad named by coach Guus Hiddink and captain Robin van Persie returns after injury ruled him out of the last game in March.

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben, however, was ruled out through injury.
