Edgar Davids, Clarence Seedorf and Roy Makaay were dismissed by Marco Van Basten to be part of Netherland's national team list for the 2006 World Cup campaign. Even without the experienced trio Van Basten's squad is believed to be one of the favorites to win the tournament as players such as Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Robin van Persie, Dirk Kuijt, Rafael van der Vaart and many others are all outstanding European players.

Defenders: Kew Jaliens (AZ Alkmaar), Jan Kromkamp (Liverpool), Andre Ooijer (PSV Eindhoven), John Heitinga (Ajax Amsterdam), Khalid Boulahrouz (HSV), Joris Mathijsen (AZ Alkmaar), Giovanni van Bronckhorst (FC Barcelona), Tim de Cler (AZ Alkmaar).

Midfielders: Mark van Bommel (FC Barcelona), Philip Cocu (PSV Eindhoven), Denny Landzaat (AZ Alkmaar), Hedwiges Maduro (Ajax Amsterdam), Wesley Sneijder (Ajax Amsterdam), Rafael van der Vaart (HSV).

Strikers: Dirk Kuijt (Feyenoord Rotterdam), Ruud van Nistelrooy (Manchester Utd), Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink (PSV Eindhoven), Arjen Robben (FC Chelsea), Robin van Persie (FC Arsenal), Ryan Babel (Ajax Amsterdam).
