In Sunday´s draw in Lucerne, the Oranje were pooled in Group C with a Romania team that outperformed them in qualifying as well as both World Cup finalists, Italy and France.
Speaking from Manchester, Van der Sar said: "We are playing against three opponents that are world class, that´s a fact. During the World Cup of 2006 our group (which included Argentina, Serbia & Montenegro and the Ivory Coast) was called the ´group of death´ but I think that this group now is just a little bit harder."
