Tim Krul has been named in the provisional squad for the Netherlands upcoming international matches against Mexico, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Italy next month.
The Norwich City shot-stopper was named in Ronald Koeman’s last international squad prior to him accepting the Barcelona manager’s job.
Krul was selected for the Netherlands for the first time since suffering a major knee injury in 2015 that saw him released from Newcastle United and struggling to find consistent first-team football.
He moved to City in 2018 on a free transfer after leaving Brighton and Hove Albion, playing a pivotal part in the Canaries promotion to the Premier League.
A Player of the Season award followed last season, with his country now recognising his impressive domestic form.
