Player Profile

The veteran keeper is included in the squad following a superb season under Steve McClaren at FC Twente, featuring in all 34 games as the club won the first league title in their history. He is the only member of the league winners in the squad.

The 39-year-old only won his first Dutch cap on 1 June against Ghana, although he was a member of Marco van Basten’s provisional squad for Euro 2008.

Boschker has 19 years of league experience behind him and this season broke the record for the number of Eredivisie appearances for a single club (his new record now stands at 543). He made his FC Twente debut back in 1989 and has been first-choice since 1993, apart from an unhappy season at Ajax in 2003/04.
