A lynchpin of the Dutch side at 25 and with over 50 caps to his name, Sneijder is certainly one of Holland's key men.
The Inter Milan star is played in an attacking-midfield role and along with former team-mate Rafael van der Vaart will be pulling the strings for the Dutch.
He made his Dutch debut as an 18-year-old just six months after his first-team debut for Ajax and a month after his first appearance for Holland Under-21s.
But Sneijder took it all in his stride and was soon an automatic choice. His biggest moment for Holland to date came in 2004 when he almost single-handedly demolished Scotland by scoring one goal and creating four in the 6-0 Euro 2004 play-off second-leg win at Hampden.
At Euro 2008, Sneijder was named in the Team of the Tournament for his strong performances, and he again be looking to catch the eye on the international stage.
He played in five of Holland's qualifying matches.
