Swansea City manager Garry Monk believes that Jonathan de Guzman could play his way into the Netherlands squad for the World Cup.

Swansea City manager Garry Monk has claimed that midfielder Jonathan de Guzman could force his way into the Netherlands squad for this summer's World Cup in Brazil.

The 26-year-old, who is on loan at the Liberty Stadium from Villarreal, scored twice in Swansea's 3-0 victory over Norwich City on Saturday.

"He was our best player," Monk told ITV Sport. "He typified everything that I asked of the team for this week - not just on the ball, but off the ball.

"The two goals that he got were special and very good finishes and he showed another string to his bow - that he can be asked to play in other positions.

"I think if he continues to play like that he'll give himself a very good chance of getting in the World Cup squad."

De Guzman has won eight international caps.
