World Cup friendly 2014, Netherlands vs. Ghana: Preview, TV schedule and how to watch online

Charlie Crowhurst

Ghana will try to keep the Netherlands winless in 2014 as they travel to Rotterdam for a World Cup tune-up match against the Dutch.

Ghana travels to face fellow World Cup qualifiers the Netherlands in what should be a solid test for both team ahead of next month in Brazil.

The Black Stars are hoping for a repeat of their excellent performance in 2010 where they advance all the way to the quarterfinals. It'll take a strong performance though after they were drawn in a tough group with Germany, Portugal, and the United States. A match against the 2010 runner-up will give head coach Akwasi Appiah a good idea of where his team stands.

The Dutch are still trying to earn their first post-qualifying victory. After going unbeaten through their UEFA group, they've managed three straight draws against Japan, Colombia and Ecuador, along with a loss against France (their first since 2012). Injuries aren't helping Louis van Gaal either, with Rafael van der Vaart and Kevin Strootman out of the tournament.

Van Gaal is expected to lineup a first choice side as he continues to fine tune the 5-3-2 formation he's expected to use in Brazil.

Match Date/Time: 8:30 p.m. local, 2:30 p.m. ET

Venue: Stadion Feijenoord, Rotterdam, Netherlands

Online: ESPN3 (U.S.)
