Chelsea and Holland legend Ruud Gullit says Aston Villa captain Ron Vlaar is critical to their World Cup chances.

Gullit admits keeping Vlaar fit will be crucial for the Dutch.

"Ron Vlaar is the only real defender we have," said Gullit.

"But who is to stand next to him? I cannot choose. For the World Cup you should just go for the one who is the best."
