Dost in line for Netherlands debut after call-up

Guus Hiddink has rewarded Bas Dost's club form with Wolfsburg with his first Netherlands call-up for their upcoming matches.

Bas Dost's sensational form in front of goal for Wolfsburg has earned him a first Netherlands call-up for their upcoming matches with Turkey and Spain.

The 25-year-old striker has scored 16 times in all competitions this season for the Bundesliga club, with 13 of them coming in 2015 alone.

Dost was named in Guus Hiddink's provisional squad earlier this month and could make his international debut in the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying match against Turkey or the friendly with Vicente del Bosque's side.

Manchester United forward Robin van Persie remains on the sidelines for both club and country after an ankle injury, while Ron Vlaar and Eljero Elia are a number of players released from the original party. 

Netherlands are looking to rebuild their qualifying campaign after a slow start, Hiddink's side going into the Turkey match sitting third in Group A.
