Van Nistelrooy not in Dutch plans

[WORLD CUP COUNTDOWN] style="font-weight: bold;">Ruud van Nistelrooy's bid for an international comeback ended when he was not included in Dutch national team coach Bert van Marwijk's plans for a pair of training camps that Oranje World Cup hopefuls will attend next week.

Van Nistelrooy, who joined German club Hamburg this season from Real Madrid, announced his international retirement after Euro 2008 but later said he wanted to still play for the national team.

Excused from the camp were Inter Milan's Wesley Sneijder and the Bayern Munich duo of Arjen Robben and Mark van Bommel, who will meet in the UEFA Champions League final on May 22 in Madrid.

AC Milan's Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Real Madrid's Rafael van der Vaart, who is injured, will also miss the camp. (Their league seasons won't end until May 16.)

Two newcomers will attend the camp: Jeremain Lens, 22, from AZ Alkmaar and Ajax's Curacao-born Vurnon Anita, 21.
