Netherlands vs USA prediction
Netherlands vs USA: The World Cup has been feverish since day one, but as we get closer to the knockout stages, the drama will intensify. The Netherlands meet the United States in the first round of 16. Both teams are unbeaten so far, so this duel is the perfect prelude to the Round of 16.
Netherlands vs USA: The Netherlands qualified for the round of 16 after beating Qatar and Senegal. Pulisic and his team must be on the lookout to find space between their defenses. They look very compact and their defense organization is really hard to break. The United States have already shown their talent against England and hope to continue their good run against the Netherlands.
Kick off: 8:30pm (IST), 15:00 (GMT)
Netherlands form (all comps): W-W-W-D-W
USA form (all comps): L-D-D-D-W
players to watch
Christian Pulisic has been a man on a mission so far in the tournament. The Chelsea star scored the winning goal against Iran in the final match to help USA progress to the group stage. Against a tougher opponent like the Netherlands, Pulisic will be USA’s key player and their greatest hope.
Frankie de Jong
Cody Gakpo has been the star of the Dutch team in the tournament so far. However, it was Frenkie de Jong who was the true unsung hero of Dutch success. He was brilliant in midfield and helps them control the game from behind.
Jeremie Firmpong is doubtful for the clash after picking up an injury on Wednesday.
Netherlands vs USA – The United States will probably be without Josh Sergent who would be injured, but more importantly, Christian Pulisic is certain to be in the starting XI.
The Netherlands, a historically rich footballing nation with stars throughout their squad, stand in the way. They are fighting for a spot in the 2022 FIFA World Cup quarter-finals on Saturday morning (10 a.m. ET | FOX, Telemundo).
Team Europe secured first place in Group A, while USMNT finished second in Group B and advanced to the Round of 16.
Netherlands vs USA – Even if it seems that the Netherlands have an advantage for the game, Gregg Berhalter’s group still firmly believes in it. They could be the first American team to reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup since 2002. Before the tournament, I picked the United States to go to the quarter-finals (actually on the other side of the table), so I still think they will get there.
Netherlands vs USA -They are a good Dutch team, but one to win. Led by another dominant midfielder, the United States will overtake them. They face another knockout match with Tim Weah scoring his second World Cup goal and Gio Reyna scoring one off the bench.
USMNT defended well throughout the tournament and the midfield trio of Weston McKennie, Yunus Musah and Tyler Adams dominated the group stage. If they can set the pace again, it will be an exciting match. The Netherlands are a team that takes their time in possession and are not full of dynamic forwards.
Netherlands vs USA -World Cup fever finally got me. Fear of the group stage and not being entirely sure of what we were going to see from the United States put me in an uneasy state which sadly made it difficult for me to have faith in our ability to move forward. But by God, the boys did it! And now I fully embrace the optimism. It was not perfect from the United States, far from it. I’m still worried about where the goals will come from and a shaky second half, but this team thinks they can beat Holland. Me too.
