Netherlands women's coach Max Caldas has announced the team that will compete in the upcoming Rabobank Hockey World League Semi Finals, which take place in Rotterdam later this month.

The 18 player squad contains no fewer than ten members of the Dutch side that won Gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games, including Eva de Goede, Ellen Hoog, Kim Lammers and influential penalty corner star and team captain Maartje Paumen.

As previously reported, the team will be without star attacker Naomi van As following the torn anterior cruciate ligament in her right knee that she sustained while representing her club side Laren in the Dutch play-offs.

The full squad listing can be found below.
