World Cup: Just a counter team – Louis van Gaal dismisses Brazil


The Netherlands, manager Louis van Gaal, has dismissed Brazil as ‘just a counter team’.

This is despite the South Americans blowing away South Korea 4-1 in a Round of sixteen game on Monday

The Selecao goals came through the boots of Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior, PSG’s Neymar, Tottenham forward Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta.

And Van Gaal was less blown away by Brazil’s approach to the game and could not help but notice the similarities with his own team.

Asked if he watched Brazil’s match, Van Gaal told NOS: “Yes, a counter team. But then I had to read in the Dutch media how beautiful it was!

“But it was just a counter team! South Korea only went out to attack.”
