GINO van Kessel could miss Oxford United's trip to Portsmouth later this month after being included in the provisional squad for Curacao.

The 24-year-old, on loan from Slavia Prague, is in the frame to face Bolivia on March 23 and 26.

If he makes head coach Remko Bicentini's final squad, which is due to be announced on Friday, Van Kessel would miss the Sky Bet League One fixture at Fratton Park on March 25.

The forward is the second U's player to receive a call-up, following Shandon Baptiste's selection for Grenada.

The midfielder will be away at the same time as Van Kessel, but is on loan at Hampton & Richmond Borough for the rest of the season.
