Chelsea fullback Patrick van Aanholt has shrugged off missing out on Holland's latest squad.

Van Aanholt has enjoyed an impressive season on-loan at Vitesse Arnhem and was expected to get the call from Louis van Gaal last week.

"I have not been invited, so obviously I must work even harder," he told Voetbal International.

"Of course I want to play for the Netherlands, because everyone dreams of this. If I continue like this, I'm sure the opportunity will arrive."
