When the young USA national team plays the Netherlands with a place in the quarterfinals on the line, might a World Cup of upsets open its Round of 16 with another one? Greg Berhalter and the U. S. men’s national team will face the Netherlands in what is expected to be a challenging battle on Saturday in Qatar, putting them in the round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

USA 2022 World Cup
The USA finished in second place in Group B, just behind England, thanks to impressive spurts of play in each of the three games that have garnered accolades from around the world, including those from Van Gaal, who has referred to the Americans as one of the better sides in Qatar. With only two goals scored so far at the World Cup, the United States backline’s defense is where it all begins.
Tyler Adams has seen the world, and his foresight will be crucial in managing the midfield. If Pulisic can’t play the entire 90 minutes due to injury, this may be the match to see Gio Reyna. The gifted young player has just played eight minutes in the England game so far, but he or she has to be prepared in case they need him.
Netherlands 2022 World Cup
Despite only giving up one goal, the Netherlands, who were predicted to do well in the World Cup, has struggled defensively. Regardless of some of the worries, they were able to win Group A with an undefeated record (2W, 1D, 0L). Memphis Depay, who has had fitness concerns and has been in and out of the team, should be able to lead the line without any problems. Outside of Gakpo, who dominates the output of goals, he is a player to watch.
Key Players for both teams:
Christian Pulisic of the US scored the lone goal in their last Group B encounter against Iran to move his team to the knockout stages. He’ll come back into focus. Cody Gakpo, who has scored in each game thus far, is one of the tournament’s top goal scorers with three goals.
