Add another Tottenham Hotspur player to the number who may possibly start in Tuesday's friendly between England and the Netherlands. In addition to the five Hotspurs in the England squad, reserve keeper Michel Vorm has been called up to the Dutch squad.

Vorm was called up to replace Ajax keeper Jasper Cillessen, who apparently suffered a broken nose in a training ground collision with Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and needed to withdraw. Unfortunately for Spurs fans, Sky Sports suggests that Vorm will be on the bench on Tuesday, with either Feyenoord's Kenneth Vermeer or PSV Eindhoven's Jeroen Zoet getting the starting nod.

England host the Netherlands this coming Tuesday at Wembley Stadium in their second friendly match of the international break period. It's unclear right now how many (if any) of the four Tottenham players who started Saturday against Germany will get the nod at Wembley, but most expect Kyle Walker, who didn't play against the Germans, will probably start.
