Dutch coach Louis van Gaal has complained about what he says is an obstructed view from the dugout at the World Cup stadium in Porto Alegre where his team will face Australia on Wednesday.

Van Gaal spoke after a training session in the Estadio Beira-Rio ahead of his team's second Group B match.

Van Gaal said he has "no view" because the dugout was too low and there was a TV camera position in front of his seat.

He said the problem was especially acute because he likes to sit during a match, not like some managers who prowl the technical area.

It was not immediately clear whether FIFA would try and address his complaint.
