Tottenham ace van der Vaart: Holland have more quality than Germany

Holland midfielder Rafael van der Vaart has taken a pot shot at the German team ahead of their Euro2012 clash tomorrow.

The Oranje take on Die Mannschaft in Kharkiv in Group B and Tottenham's van der Vaart feels he and his teammates have a better side than the highly-fancied Germans.

"I can count only three outstanding players in the Germany squad: [Mesut] Ozil, [Mario] Gotze and [Bastian] Schweinsteiger," he told NUsport. "Their defence is okay, but that's all.

"I think we have more quality. But football is also about confidence, and that's what they will have now."

Germany won their opening match 1-0 over Portugal whilst Holland were surprisingly beaten 1-0 by Denmark making this a vital fixture for the World Cup runners-up.
