Report: Van Marwijk cuts final 4 from squad

Dutch media are reporting that Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk has finalized his 23-man World Cup squad by dropping four players.
National broadcaster NOS and other media say defenders Vurnon Anita of Ajax and Ron Vlaar of Feyenoord, and PSV Eindhoven midfielder Orlando Engelaar and AZ Alkmaar forward Jeremain Lens have been cut.
Van Marwijk is set to formally announce his final squad later Thursday in Austria, where the team is training.
A team spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking confirmation of the final squad.
The Netherlands will play in Group E with Denmark, Japan and Cameroon.
