Dutch can go the distance, insists Van der Vaart
The Dutch squad believe they can lift the World Cup, according to midfielder Rafael Van der Vaart.
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.
“We have very good players like Spain, and a very good coach,” said the 27-year-old former Ajax man.
“We have Sneijder, Robben, we have lots of quality.
“And if we get there in good shape, we definitely have possibilities to win the World Cup.”
