Forward Steven Bergwijn was dropped on Wednesday as Netherlands coach Frank de Boer finalised his 26-man squad for next month’s European Championship, axing eight players from a preliminary squad named earlier this month.
Veteran goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, who played in the 2010 World Cup final but only recently saw league action with Ajax Amsterdam after years as a reserve at Everton, was chosen as one of the three goalkeepers, ahead of Marco Bizot of AZ Alkmaar.
At 38, Stekelenberg will be one of the oldest squad members at the tournament.

De Boer kept the 19-year-old Ajax defender Jurriem Timber, who have made a strong impression in the second half of the Dutch league season but has yet to play for the national team.
Daley Blind, who suffered a serious ankle injury in March, was also included as he works his way back to full fitness.
The Dutch must do without captain Virgil van Dijk, who earlier this month said he would not try to return from injury at Euro 2020 but instead concentrate on being fit for the next Premier League season with Liverpool.
The squad will reassemble on Friday ahead of a week-long training camp in Portugal, where they will also play a friendly against Scotland on June 2. They will play a second warm-up international in Enschede against Georgia on June 6.
Their opening Euro 2020 Group C match is against Ukraine in Amsterdam on June 13.
