Louis van Gaal believes the sky is the limit for Netherlands at World Cup 2014 in Brazil – as long as they remain united as a team.

The Oranje failed to survive the group stage at Euro 2012 as Germany, Portugal and Denmark proved to be too strong, ultimately costing Bert van Marwijk his job.

But his successor is confident that they can do better in two years’ time.

“It might not be entirely realistic, but our goal is to make it to the semi-finals at the World Cup,” the coach told Radio 1.

“That’s definitely not impossible. We can be the best team at the World Cup if we stick together. We might not have the best players, but we can go far if we act as a unit.

“We’re a very well-organised team when our opponents have the ball. However, we still have room for improvement in other areas.”

Netherlands top their qualification section with 12 points from four matches.
