Ryan Babel believes Holland were given a 'decent' World Cup draw - and the winger is relishing the prospect of facing teammate Daniel Agger in the group stages.
The Dutch were paired with Denmark, Japan and Cameroon in the first round during Friday's draw in South Africa.
And Babel told Liverpoolfc.tv: "For Holland it's a decent group. Every team who qualifies for the World Cup is good, so we have to beware. But if we go straight from the start, concentrate and win the first two games, then we'll see what happens.
"I'm looking forward to the World Cup starting. I'll definitely have a bit of banter with Daniel.
"I haven't had chance to speak to him about it yet but I think when it comes closer everyone who is involved in the competition will have some fun talking about it."
Meanwhile, Babel is back in training after a foot injury which forced him from the field against Man City two weeks ago.
He added: "I still have some problems. I was very lucky I didn't break my foot but I had a bone bruise and that takes some time to heal.
"I am training outside but hitting the ball is still very painful."
