"We are still alive. We want to show that we still have much and that we want to compete. We know how to do this. The game against Chile will require high level football. We know how to face them," Alonso said on Sunday.

Alonso expects a "good start" against Chile in Rio de Janeiro's Maracana Stadium on Wednesday.

"We know their playing style and characteristics which they probably will not change,” he added.

Netherlands is on top of Group B with three points, followed by Chile, Australia and Spain.
