Default Match element based on attribute of child?

I'd like to restrict a template to a specific element that has a specific child with a specific attribute:

 <inner type="good"/>
 <inner type="notgood"/>

Given the above, I need a MATCH= pattern that selects the first OUTER element but not the second. I know I need a predicate

 <xsl:template match="outer[inner ... ]">

but I don't know how to specify a predicate that tests an attribute of a child element.

TIA for any help you can offer.

<xsl:template match="outer[inner[@child='good']]">


<xsl:template match="outer[inner/@child='good']">

(they're equivalent)
