Netherlands national team coach sees future for Sneijder in his side

Netherlands national team coach sees a future for Wesley Sneijder in his side despite leaving the Galatasaray star out of the team which drew 1-1 with Italy yesterday.

"Sneijder has not played football for two months," said van Gaal.

"However, this doesn't mean he won't be getting called up to the team.

"I always follow my players closely and Sneijder is my captain, he has earned his place in the side for what he's done in the past."

Sneijder is expected to start against Antalyaspor on Sunday 10 January 2013.
