Van der Wiel confident of reaching Euro finale

9 June 2012 15:58

Gregory van der Wiel does not know who the opponents will be, but is confident that Netherlands are going the win the Euro 2012 final 2-1.

The full-back admitted that the tournament is full of difficult adversaries, and did not rule out the possibility of a World Cup final rematch against Spain.

But he is confident that Oranje will be winners this time around.

"It's possible (that Netherlands could face Spain in the final), but you have a lot of other strong countries," Van der Wiel told Goal.com.

"Not only Spain or Holland, also Germany, England, Portugal, France - all strong countries - so we have to be aware of every team, not only Spain.

"I think Holland will reach the final, but I don't know against who. We're going to win 2-1, though."

Van der Wiel believes that the amount of quality players in the squad, coupled with the added experience of going so close to glory in South Africa, will see them over the line.

"We have world-class players in our squad, in all positions, so I think the whole team is strong. Everyone is two years older than during the World Cup, so I think we can perform well," he said.

"People expect a lot from our team, but I think we have a great squad. I think we can play well and try to win the European title.

"What would be a success for Holland? Winning the tournament. That's our goal."
