USA vs Netherlands and more World Cup 2022 news

Today’s game between the USA men’s national team and the Netherlands is one of the most intriguing clashes in the first knockout round of Qatar 2022.

The two teams meet at 10 a.m. ET at the Khalifa International Stadium outside Doha.

Although the bookies have the Netherlands as the favourites, this match seems closer than that, and both teams will feel confident of booking a place in the quarter-finals.

United States:

Of course, America’s main concern is the fitness of star man Christian Pulisic.

The striker, nicknamed ‘Captain America’ by some American fans, suffered what he called a pelvic contusion as he scored the winner in the team’s decisive game against Iran. He will play today, according to the team, but fans will be eagerly watching for any signs that his injury is affecting his performance.

While Pulisic is undoubtedly the star of the USMNT, captain Tyler Adams has been the engine and the heartbeat of the team. Watch for him to order the pitch on Saturday.

Surrounding the talented midfielder is a solid USA side who caused England real problems in their group stage match and picked up a solid victory against Iran in a one-on-one high stakes. They looked clinical and sharp at many points in Qatar.

The Netherlands:

The Dutch side can be dangerous, but they have yet to put it all together in Qatar, with their fullest performance coming against a struggling host nation side.

While the Dutch only managed eight shots on target in their three group stage matches, the side were able to score five goals, thanks in large part to young star Cody Gakpo.

The 23-year-old scored with right foot, left foot and header to lead the 2022 World Cup Golden Boot race alongside Kylian Mbappé, Marcus Rashford, Álvaro Morata and Enner Valencia.

This team battled against an athletic team from Ecuador, a threat the young Americans will also pose. The Netherlands will need Gakpo at his best – along with defender Virgil van Dijk and midfielder Frenkie de Jong – to pass a stern test against the Americans.
