No missing players.
- Netherlands should have no injury concerns coming into this game.
- Christian Pulisic came off in the win over Iran on Tuesday with a pelvic injury and will have to be assessed before this game to see if he can take part.
- Josh Sargent also came off in that game with an ankle injury and will also have to be assessed before this game.
Happy for our neighbours in the North, but it wasn't pretty to look at. Great goals though.
why does it say Haji Wright caught offside in the 94th minute??? there was no offside only a header from Haji Wright, this needs to be reviewed
Whoscored sucks big time ! how on earth Dumfries isn't MAN of the match with 10 rating?! He did more than blind attack and defense wise. Thi is a joke!!
@Falasteny Blind literally had 7 tackles to dumfries 1
Great performance by Dumfries. Two assists and a clearance of the line!
And that goal.
Great performance by the Dutch. I'm especially happy for Van Gaal. He's a legend.
it is very expected, fair result, usa is not good enough
@wdetac xG was pretty even
Shame about the result, it shows USA is still a little too green. All 3 goals were infantile, especially the 3rd. Credit to Blind and Dumfries for running the show here but the rest of the unit isn't as strong as they appear on paper. Shaky defense pulled apart too easily by USA, only their wastefulness saved them. Good luck next week
Well played to the Dutch, clinical and controlled, Dumfries and Blind were incredible today
Everybody was supporting usa everybody lost along with them.
@MickeyClark Nobody was supporting the USA.
@MickeyClark I wasn't, my Dream Team is full of Dutch players. Van Gaal knows how to win a tournament. Netherlands are classes above USA.
@Geolardo He can only win tournaments against crappy teams. There must be a reason every Argentine that has ever played for him said he was one of their worst coaches ever and why every club fires him after 2 years.
''And now the offside flag goes up'' is the most frequent phrase now in football
As long as we can have some good central defenders develop, this USA team in 2026 will be a beast
I don't know why, but I'm supporting USA today..
How was Wright not offside?
LVG tactical masterclass :)
First big chance USA resulting in a miss, first big chance for the Dutchies and they are clinical. It's all about taking your chances. That's the only difference at this point.
18th December 2022 World Cup Final England vs Netherlands
@Geolardo you can see the future..
Somebody please explain to me how 2 loser teams such as these got to this phase of the World Cup??? None of them have quality going forward (Pulisic might be out from this game), so I think the Dutch physical education teacher will mastermind a 0-0 to bring the game to penalty kicks. And the USA will be the perfect partner to this mindless game plan.
@Zoltan Simply because the finish 1st and 2nd in the group phase. You do have some understanding about tournament???
@recoba90 شكرا لك لقد راهنت بهذه نتيجة وربحت
Gakpo to score anytime.
Depay to score and over 3,5 goals
Extra time, US should only focus and save their energy. Set pieces are very critical
Netherlands 1-0 USA
@McHennie Under 2.5
USA winning at penalties seems quite possible considering their recent form. They should be able to force a draw and if they do they're likely to win at PKs.
USA have no real finisher, Dutch 1-0 or 2-0.
Depay should start here, Bergwijn has been anonymous.
Over 1.5 goals @1.44
The Dutchies are so lucky with Mane being inured as best player of Senegal, Kouyate got injured during the game and now USA will most likely miss their best player with Pulisic. Historically (if both Netherlands and Argentina get past their round of 16 opponents) a great game awaits us in the Quarter Final. I think Argentina will win 2-0 and the Netherlands will win after penalties.
not that familiar with usa but the netherlands play pretty soulless and lack real quality going forward (though it may not seem that way from past scorelines & lineup) they will get exposed for it eventually, however decent quality and structure generally in the team should get the job done though an upset against a solid usa team doesnt seem all that unlikely to me
