Swans trio star for Holland

11th June

Three Swans were in Holland's starting XI today as they beat China 2-0 in a friendly in Beijing.
Michel Vorm, Dwight Tiendalli and loanee Jonathan de Guzman were included from the start by Louis van Gaal, whose side took the lead after 11 minutes via Robin van Persie.
China then saw Qin Sheng sent off two minutes later following a challenge on de Guzman.
Tiendalli, who made his first start just four days after making his international debut, was replaced at the break while Vorm and de Guzman featured for the full 90 minutes.
Vorm made a fine reaction save to deny Yu Hanchao in the second half, while Holland - who beat Indonesia last Friday - wrapped up the win via sub Wesley Sneijder.
