New Holland coach Guus Hiddink will not hesitate in reverting back to the tactics of his predecessor Louis van Gaal if necessary
Holland live updates
Holland came from behind to beat Kazakhstan 3-1 at the Amsterdam ArenA and get their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign up and running.
The World Cup semi-finalists had lost their opening Group A match away to the Czech Republic and a shock looked on the cards when Guus Hiddink's side fell behind to an early header from Renat Abdulin.
But goals from Klaas Jan Huntelaar, Ibrahim Afellay and Robin van Persie spare their blushes.
Holland striker Dirk Kuyt has retired from international football.
The 34-year-old Fenerbahce forward has decided to end his 10-year career with the national team after winning 104 caps and scoring 24 goals.
Kuyt was a part of Louis van Gaal's squad that finished third at this summer's World Cup but was omitted by new boss Guus Hiddink for the upcoming European Championship qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Iceland.
– Former Netherlands forward Dirk Kuyt
I want to be important to the Netherlands team, but the coach explained to me that he no longer has the role for me that I would prefer.
I'm 34 years old, then you should be honest to yourself. I didn't quite fancy investing a lot of energy in the Oranje for another two years without getting to play much.
I look back with great pride on 10 wonderful years with the Dutch national team.
An awful defensive mistake from Newcastle's Daryl Janmaat gifted Vaclav Pilar an injury-time winner for Czech Republic in Guus Hiddink's first competitive match in charge of Holland.
Janmaat admitted he felt like an idiot afterwards.

I wanted to head the ball back to Jasper (Cillessen), but I got it wrong.
I feel very silly, but it was my fault.
1 - Against the Czech Republic, Daryl Janmaat misplaced one of his ten passes into the defensive third. Fatal. http://t.co/EF4JJ3KhF2
Louis van Gaal knows Leroy Fer all too well, and must be hoping the man he coached for Holland at the World Cup doesn't repeat this thunderbolt on Sunday.
Fer despatched a ferocious volley during an international training session, and is likely to start for new club QPR at Old Trafford at the weekend.
Ruud van Nistelrooy has been named as one of Holland's assistant coaches.
A tweet from the Dutch football association, the KNVB, announced that Van Nistelrooy, now 38, will work under new coach Guus Hiddink and alongside Danny Blind, who is due to take over from Hiddink in 2018.
Bryan Robson believes Dutch hard man Bruno Martins Indi would have been an ideal signing for Manchester United.
The 22-year-old centre-back joined Porto from Feyenoord this week after enjoying a solid World Cup under new United boss Louis van Gaal.
"He really impressed me in Brazil, especially against Argentina when they were up against it," Robson said.
"He had a really good tournament. He had a big presence on the pitch and we need someone like that."
