Youth player Ismaïl Aissati has been added to the squad for the away game against FC Twente on Friday night. As some players are ruled out for tomorrow night's game, Guus Hiddink has included him in the first team squad for the first time.Aissati started the season as junior of the U16 team, but he was soon fielded in the U18 team of coach Ricardo Moniz. So on Friday night he will be on the bench for the first time in his life at a Holland Casino Eredivisie encounter. Wilfred Bouma (back) and Ji-Sung Park (foot) will not be available, just like Robert who has sustained an ankle injury. Hiddink has named an eighteen man squad for this league fixture. Park is likely to be available for the AC Milan clash on Wednesday night, according to Hiddink. "Bouma is a major doubt, though. We will have to bring about changes to the starting line-up anyway, as André Ooijer serves a one match ban. I am thinking out a few scenarios." One of them might imply that PSV will sacrifice one defender against the Italian side. "We may make opt for some bold solution, playing fewer men in defence than usual. I am considering that option. But there's some time left before we meet AC Milan and some players may have recovered in time." The head coach feels that the availability of Robert de Pinho de Souza is touch and go. "He is making some progress." Hiddink has not made a final decision as to his starting XI against FC Twente. "I will do that tonight, as I haven’t made up my mind yet. We have ourselves to consider in view of the AC Milan encounter. But at the same time we are aware of our obligations, so we will not field a reserve team. Our players like to play football and are always eager to win games." The squad will have treatment on Saturday and they will have the Sunday off. The squad will train at De Herdgang on Monday morning and they will be on the pitch of the Eindhoven Philips Stadium for their pre-match training session on Tuesday.The squad for the league game against FC Twente:Goalkeepers: Gomes, ZoetebierDefenders: Addo, Alex, Bøgelund, Lee, OoijerMidfielders: Afellay, Van Bommel, Cocu, Lucius, Van der Schaaf, VogelForwards: Beasley, Farfán, Sibon, Vennegoor of Hesselink, Aissati.
