Rick Karsdorp will most likely not feature in the upcoming World Cup in Qatar with the Dutch national team.

As announced by the Dutch federation, the preliminary call-up list of 39 names selected by Louis van Gaal did not include Roma’s 27-year-old fullback.

As a result, the player will remain in the Italian capital and spend his World Cup break with Jose Mourinho and his teammates training in Japan and Portugal in November and December.
