Cruijff sceptical of World Cup squad
Former Dutch footballer Johan Cruijff thinks that the Dutch national team has quality, but is missing the experience to make real big waves at the upcoming World Cup in Brazil, he told Spanish radio channel Cope. "The Netherlands has a young team, we have to see if they're nervous. They have quality, but are missing experience", the former manager of the Catalonia football team said. Cruijff believes that the Brazilian team are going to be the big favorite for the World Cup finals. "Spain has a wonderful team, but Brazil is the most important candidate for me. They play home and we have seen what happened in the Confederations Cup", Cruijff says. Last year, Brazil won 3-0 to Spain with home advantage. The Netherlands will play Spain as their first match of the World Cup on Friday the 13th of June.
