The Real Madrid playmaker claims the Dutch, who have never won the ultimate prize, have a squad capable of competing with the likes of Brazil and Spain in South Africa.
And despite an injury to star player Arjen Robben, Van der Vaart remains in a positive frame of mind ahead of their opening Group E clash with Denmark on Monday.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have very good players like Spain, and a very good coach,Ã¢â‚¬Â said the 27-year-old former Ajax man.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have Sneijder, Robben, we have lots of quality.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“And if we get there in good shape, we definitely have possibilities to win the World Cup.Ã¢â‚¬Â
