Sports: Netherlands Recall Virgil Van Dijk

Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk has been called up to the Netherlands squad for their crucial World Cup Qualifiers this week.

The defender, who was heavily linked with a move to Liverpool in the summer, was overlooked when head-coach Dick Advocaat named a 24-man squad for the final Group A matches, against Belarus and Sweden, on Friday.

However, Van Dijk got a last-minute call-up on Monday after starting for Southampton for the first time this season in Saturday’s 2-1 loss at Stoke City, playing the full 90 minutes.

The Netherlands are third in Group A, four points behind France and three points adrift of Sweden, and fighting for a place in Russia next summer.
