PSV will train one more time, ahead of the opening fixture of the 2006-2007 season, when N.E.C. visit the Philips Stadium on Sunday afternoon. PSV head coach Ronald Koeman announced at his weekly media briefing that André Ooijer will start. Fully-fit squad"We have 26 fully-fit players", told Koeman media representatives. We will train on Saturday afternoon at 15:00 and then I will tell my players which of them will start against N.E.C. "I have no selection worries. Afellay and Beasley have returned from injuries; they joined the squad for full training this week and are fully-fit. Ooijer will start, so Simons will be positioned in midfield again." Koeman took no notice of rumours involving Ooijer and Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, but he explained that PSV have taken precautionary measures in case they leave PSV after all. "But I think we’d better have a team photo made in February rather than in summer, because then you know for certain which players you can field." N.E.C.Koeman does not expect a walkover on Sunday afternoon. "We play at home, so we need a bright start to the campaign. N.E.C. do not have a large squad to pick from, but they gave quite a few top sides a hard time last season."
