The Netherlands vs. USA will battle off in the opening encounter of the World Cup Round of 16 in 2022. After placing third at the FIFA 2014 in Brazil, the Dutch could not complete the FIFA 2018 in Russia. The American team is in the same boat. They were not eligible the last time either.
The Dutch won two games and drew one, finishing first in Group A. They defeated Senegal 2-0 in the opening encounter, drew 1-1 with Ecuador, and beat home Qatar by a score of 2-0. After playing to draws with England and Wales and winning 1-0 over Iran, the U.S. placed second in Group B.
Netherlands vs. USA Overview
The Americans advanced to the elimination round with two draws and one victory. Despite having outstanding attacking skills, they have only scored goals in three games. The fact that England was held at bay in a scoreless draw must have been their biggest success.
They will once more rely on their defensive tactics. However, scoring is required in the knockout rounds, which are very different from group-stage games.
Although the Dutch have only taken eight goal attempts throughout this world cup, the Oranje will be buoyed by their excellent results in the group phase. They were one of the highest-scoring groups that progressed. Morocco, England, and Dutch were the teams with the highest points (7) in the round. The competition’s knockout rounds will once again be faced by the runners-up from 2010.
