Several changes have been made to the Dutch squad for their final Euro 2008 Group G qualifier against Belarus on Wednesday.

Coach Marco van Basten announced after Saturday's 1-0 win against Luxembourg, which guaranteed his side's qualification for next summer's finals, that striker Ruud van Nistelrooy, who picked up a hamstring injury, and goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar would leave the squad.

Now in a statement on Sunday, the Dutch football federation (KNVB) said that midfielder Clarence Seedorf was also being allowed to return to his club Milan.

The statement added that goalkeeper Henk Timmer, midfielders Nigel de Jong and Hedwiges Maduro and striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar would join the squad on Monday for the trip to Belarus.

The Dutch are second in Group G, level on 26 points with leaders Romania.
