Krul banking on Newcastle form for World Cup place

Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul hopes his form at club level will win him a place in the Netherlands squad for the World Cup, Sky Sports has reported.

Krul is competing with the likes of Maarten Stekelenburg for a place in Louis van Gaal’s World Cup party but wasn’t included in the squad to play France on Wednesday after conceding regularly for the Magpies in recent games.

“I'll keep fighting to the end,” Krul said. “I've got 10 games left to show them that I'm ready and I think the manager knows what he gets from me. I'm going to do my best to show him that I should be on that plane to Brazil. He hasn't phoned to explain his decision, but I don't think the manager has to do that.

“We've had a bad month and I think we have to be honest about that,” Krul continued. “We have turned it around with two great wins and the only thing I can do now is impress in the next 20 games. Another good run with Newcastle can help my chances of going to the World Cup, because of course the manager looks at that.

“He said in his press conference that some players have obviously had a bad couple of months and he would go from now. All I can do is look forward and try to get back into the squad.”

Krul has made 30 appearances for Newcastle this season and have five caps for the Netherlands since making his debut in 2011.
