Robin van Persie and Daley Blind both start for Holland tonight in their Euro 2016 qualifier against Iceland.

Here is the full Holland line-up: Cillessen, Van der Wiel, De Vrij, Martins Indi, Blind, Afellay, De Jong, Sneijder, Robben, Van Persie, Lens.

The other two Manchester United players involved in international duty tonight are Marouane Fellaini and Adnan Januzaj.

Here is the full Belgium line-up: Courtois, Alderweireld, Kompany, Lombaerts, Vertonghen, Nainggolan, Defour, De Bruyne, Origi, Hazard, Lukaku.


Van Persie scored against Kazakhstan last week and will be hoping to follow that up with a stronger performance tonight in what is a must win match for Holland against Iceland who are currently above them in their Group A.

As for Januzaj and Fellaini, they have to settle for a place on the bench but will be itching to come on for some vital minutes, especially Januzaj who has had very limited game time this season both for club and country.
