Line-ups: Australia – Holland

Holland have named an unchanged starting line-up for their second World Cup Group B match, against Australia.

Louis Van Gaal’s team produced the performance of the tournament thus far to dismantle Spain 5-1 in their tournament opener last Friday.

As a result, Lazio target Stefan De Vrij takes his place in the side once more, while Arjen Robben and Robin Van Persie will look to build upon excellent individual displays against the world champions.

Australia meanwhile make two changes to the team beaten 3-1 by Chile. They know that defeat to the Dutch would all but confirm they cannot make the Last 16.

This afternoon’s referee in Porto Alegre is Djamel Haimoudi of Algeria. Kick-off is at 17.00 BST.

Official Line-ups

Australia: Ryan, Davidson, Cahill, Spiranovic, Leckie, Oar, Jedniak (c), McKay, McGowan, Wilkinson, Bresciano

Holland: Cillessen, Vlaar, De Vrij, Martins Indi, Blind, De Jong, Janmaat, De Guzman, Van Persie (c), Sneijder, Robben

Referee: Djamel Haimoudi (ALG)
