At the Khalifa International Stadium on Saturday afternoon, the Netherlands and the USA will begin the World Cup 2022 last-16 phase. The Stars and Stripes placed second in Group B behind England, while Louis van Gaal’s team won Group A to advance to the knockout stages. The Netherlands, who were widely anticipated to advance to the last 16 as Group A winners and did not disappoint the Oranje faithful, took seven points from their three matches, proving to be nothing more than a minor blip.
Breakout star Cody Gakpo turned out to be only the fourth man in Netherlands history to score in three progressive World Cup coordinates with his very much-taken opener against Qatar on Tuesday, and Frenkie de Jong likewise got in on the demonstration with a tap-in to affirm the first-put finish and leave the hosts winless and trivial en route to the leave entryway.
Despite not working the goalkeeper very much, as evidenced by their lack of shots on target, the ruthlessness of Gakpo and the rest of Van Gaal’s players still makes the Netherlands a very tough opponent. The Dutch will also benefit from their excellent defensive record, and given that the USA may not have McKennie and Pulisic fully recovered, we can only anticipate Oranje progressing to the quarterfinals.
