Netherlands assistant coach Danny Blind has backed Ghana to go far at the World Cup in Brazil despite their a 1-0 win over the Black Stars in a friendly on Saturday night.
The Oranje needed a fifth minute goal from Robin van Persie to snatch the win and could have scored more had Arjen Robben been clinical.
Ghana goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey also pulled some great saves to deny the Dutch.
“Ghana is a good team and that’s why we decided to play them in the first place,” Blind told the Dutch press after game
“They have a good chance at the world cup as we do.”
Ghana will continue preparing for the tournament in Florida, USA where they play World Cup-bound South Korea on 9 June.
The Black Stars’s Group G opener is against USA on 16 June in Natal.
