Netherlands vs Argentina Match Preview and Team News
The Netherlands find themselves in the quarter-final of the World Cup, and after proving their worth against the USA, they’ll be looking to make another statement by ending Argentina and Lionel Messi’s dream of lifting the trophy. Although the Netherlands’ 3-1 victory over the USA in the last round looks like a comfortable one at first glance, they were arguably second-best for periods of that match and were outworked. If the USA had a more potent center-forward, they might have found more joy, but the Flying Dutchmen won’t care about that. They were efficient and got the goals they needed. Cody Gakpo plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Steven Bergwijn is a guy who causes a lot of problems for the opponent on the left side. He is fast and unstoppable in a one-on-one game.
Argentina endured a nervy end to their round of 16 tie against Australia but was able to hang on and clinch a 2-1 victory. This will be a step up in terms of opposition they have faced so far at this World Cup, and in what should be a closely fought game, perhaps another moment of magic from Lionel Messi will be required. Argentina themselves have not looked too reliable in a defensive capacity, and they look like a side that often feels the occasion too much. They were far and away the better side against Australia last time out, but still conceded and only a last-gasp save from Emi Martinez prevented it from going to extra time. Angel Di Maria finally shows the qualities he possesses, he has excellent technique, and he is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. Lautaro Martinez is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
