In their second friendly in preparation for the World Cup in Brazil, the Netherlands faced Ghana on Saturday. 

The match was especially interesting considering manager Louis van Gaal's recent switch to a 5-3-2 formation. The key question was: Would Oranje once again line up in this unusual system, or would the Dutch return to their traditional 4-3-3 setup?
