Van Gaal: Oranje Can't Win In Brazil

Holland will book their ticket to the World Cup in Brazil if they win their next qualifier against Estonia on 9 June.

The Oranje’s skilful squad has been highly impressive in cruising to the top of their qualifying group, with six wins from six matches against tricky foes like Hungary, Romania and Turkey.

But even so, their experienced coach, Louis van Gaal, has played down their chances of winning the global showpiece next year.

He says that realistically, there are a host of teams better equipped than the beaten 2010 finalists to taste glory in Brazil.

However, van Gaal does admit that like any coach worth his salt, he dreams of lifting the Fifa World Cup trophy.

"(Winning) would be a surprise, but I don't think so," the former Ajax, Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager, who is in his second stint as Holland boss, told ANP.

"I can count eight teams who have a better chance of becoming world champions than Netherlands.

"I'm always real. I dream of becoming world champions. That's what I love for. That's why I'm the coach."
