Holland coach Van Gaal satisfied with victory over Chile

Holland coach Louis van Gaal was pleased with their 2-0 World Cup win over Chile.

The Dutch emerged victorious from a slow-burning and often fractious contest in Sao Paulo, maintaining their 100 per cent record in the pool, after substitutes Leroy Fer and Memphis Depay both notched late goals.

Van Gaal said: "It was a match of the highest quality.

"We limited Chile to a handful of opportunities, we neutralised them extremely effectively - and particularly in the second half we created more chances.

"We did have to change our style today - and I will always pick a system and a strategy that will help us win.

"However, we're not perfect - in possession we still need to improve, but I do think we're very good without the ball."
