Guus Hiddink insists that the Netherlands can be confident of beating Argentina to reach the World Cup final.

Guus Hiddink has claimed that the Netherlands can be confident of reaching the World Cup final ahead of their meeting with Argentina on Wednesday.

The 67-year-old admits that the quality of Lionel Messi could decide the semi-final, but he believes that Arjen Robben could have a similar impact for Louis van Gaal's side.

"The technical team has done great preparation. [It is] a great example of teamwork," Hiddink told De Telegraaf. "If you see the qualities of this team we should have confidence [against Argentina].

"Of course the Argentines have Messi who can do something crazy, but we have Robben who can do that too."

Hiddink will replace Van Gaal when he begins his duties with Manchester United after the World Cup.
