Team News: Four changes apiece for Netherlands, Turkey

Netherlands and Turkey make four changes apiece ahead of their Euro 2016 Group A qualifier at the Amsterdam ArenA.

Guus Hiddink has made four changes to his Netherlands side ahead of their Euro 2016 Group A qualifier against Turkey at the Amsterdam ArenA this evening.

Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben are the most notable absentees as they miss the clash with an ankle injury and a muscle tear respectively.

Georgino Wijnaldum and Memphis Depay replace the veteran duo, while the other changes see Jetro Willems and Jeffrey Bruma dropped to the bench in favour of Nigel de Jong and Bruno Martins Indi.

The Oranje have taken just six points from four games in a tricky qualifying campaign so far to sit third in the group, but they lead tonight's opponents by two points.

Turkey manager Fatih Terim has also made four changes from his side's 3-1 win against Kazakhstan in November last year.

Semih Kaya, Arda Turan, Olcay Sahan and Umut Bulut make way for Gokhan Gonul, Hakan Balta, Gokhan Tore and Mehmet Topal.

Netherlands: Cillessen, Van der Wiel, De Vrij, Martins Indi, Blind, Wijnaldum, De Jong, Sneijder, Afellay, Huntelaar, Depay

Turkey: Babacan, Tufan, Gonul, Aziz, Balta, Erkin, Tore, Inan, Topal, Sen, Yilmaz
