Van Ginkel has only just recovered from an ACL injury.
"If the pain is gone, so does the fear of a new injury," said Van Ginkel. "The pain threshold has been gone for a while. I enjoy precisely that I am fit again. I did not expect to be sitting with the Oranje, especially since I'd not played for Chelsea.
"But the coach asked for reports about my games with the juniors and I am happy to be here."
