The teams are in and much like the first fixture between the sides, the Netherlands have made changes from their first-choice XI. Frenkie de Jong starts in midfield, but Memphis Depay, Virgil van Dijk and Denzel Dumfries are all on the bench. Vincent Janssen comes in up front, with Mathijs de Ligt captaining the side. 

Gareth Bale starts on the bench for Wales as Robert Page gives some of his lesser names a go from the start. Brennan Johnson is rewarded for his fine recent form by partnering Dan James up front, with Harry Wilson in midfield. Spurs' Ben Davies captains the team from left-centre-back.

The Dutchmen are flying again, with irascible coach Louis van Gaal bringing a sense of intensity and traditional progressive Oranje values to the side since returning last August for his third spell in charge of his country.

Kicking off their UEFA Nations League campaign with a fine 4-1 win against neighbours Belgium, the Netherlands proved that they're about more than just Virgil van Dijk, Frenkie de Jong and Memphis Depay by making 11 changes in beating Wales six days ago. Though a 2-2 draw with Poland at the weekend came as something of a surprise, the fact Van Gaal's side recovered from 2-0 down to get get a point with two goals in three second-half minutes from Davy Klaassen and Denzel Dumfries shows the desire that exists in the squad. It could be that Van Gaal will shuffle his pack once again.

Wales may have preferred to start their Nations League campaign in better form than two defeats and a draw, but there was realistically only one goal from this international break – qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1958.

The post-Ukraine hangover is understandable but with squad places up for grabs in Qatar, the Dragons will be determined to get back to winning ways. Though the first-choice XI is well established, Brennan Johnson was excellent against the Netherlands last week and scored a late equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Belgium on Saturday. Tuesday represents a good examination of where Wales are and how they can improve going into their biggest tournament in more than six decades.

The big match kicks off at 7:45pm BST Tuesday 14th June, at De Kuip, Rotterdam. Follow our guide on how to watch a Netherlands vs Wales live stream for free from wherever you are in the world.
