Guus Hiddink elects to use a 3-5-2 formation as Netherlands start their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign against the Czech Republic.

Guus Hiddink has elected to use the 3-5-2 system adopted by his predecessor Louis van Gaal for Tuesday night's Euro 2016 qualifying clash with the Czech Republic.

The World Cup semi-finalists played in a 4-3-3 formation in the defeat to Italy last week, and that result has persuaded Hiddink to make changes.

Memphis Depay has been given a start, and looks set to provide the main support for Robin van Persie, while Joel Veltman adds extra cover in the centre of defence.

There are no surprises for the hosts as David Lafata holds on to his place up front, with captain Tomas Rosicky trusted to operate in the area just behind the lone striker.

Czech Republic: Cech, Limbersky, Kadlec, Prochazka, Kaderabek, Vacha, Krejci, Darida, Dockal, Rosicky, Lafata

Netherlands: Cillessen, Janmaat, Veltman, De Vrij, Martins Indi, Blind, Wijnaldum, Sneijder, De Jong, Depay, Van Persie
