Edison Méndez will make his first pre-season start in Venlo when PSV take on VVV-Venlo to contest the Herman Teeuwen Memorial trophy. The pre-season friendly match is organised every year to keep the memory of the former VVV-Venlo star alive. Danko Lazovic is the lone striker up front, with a strong midfield providing support.
Nordin Amrabat
Méndez has returned to full fitness after he stepped up his rehabilitation programme, following an injury. Andreas Isaksson returns to the starting line-up after Cássio Ramos and Jeroen Zoet had been handed a place between the posts against the SV Vaassen amateurs. Maza partners Addo in the defence, while the creative midfielder Ibrahim Afellay is expected to feed the ball to the forward line. Jason Culina, who was played at right back last Saturday, plays in midfield, along with captain Timmy Simons. Former VVV forward Nordin Amrabat is back in Venlo, but starts on the bench. The sun is shining brightly in Venlo and the air is crisp with the warm summer breeze.
PSV line-up:
Isaksson, Alcides, Addo, RodrĂ­guez, Salcido, Simons, Méndez, Culina, Afellay, Dzsudzsák and Lazovic.
Substitutes: Cássio Ramos, Zonneveld, Amrabat, Van der Leegte, Väyrynen and Van Eijden.
