The US was knocked out of the World Cup by the Netherlands in the round of 16 as the young Americans taught a lesson in clinical finishing.

FULL MATCH REPLAY

Christian Pulisic missed a brilliant chance early on and then the Netherlands took the lead with two smooth moves as Memphis Depay completed a perfect streak of 20 passes and then Daly Blind scored a near-exact copy to make it 2-0 right at half-time.

Hadji Wright made it 2-1 with 15 minutes left, but the Netherlands took the win moments later when the brilliant Denzel Dumfries ended the match superbly in favor of Louis van Gaal’s loose and determined side.

The Netherlands will now take on winners Argentina and Australia in the quarter-finals, while the US will head home with their heads held high and valuable tournament experience in their back pocket.


The future is bright, but the US must make the most of it

There is no shame in losing to this Dutch team. They have class throughout their team and players like Memphis Depay, Frenkie de Jong, Virgil van Dijk and great fullbacks (Dumfries and Blind) have been at ease in the last 16 matches. This young American team, the youngest team in the last 16, looked restless throughout the match, sloppy with the ball and simply couldn’t use their big chances. Christian Pulisic missed a great chance early and the Dutch took advantage of it. Their game plan was to sit back and shoot the US, which they did. The experience and class of the Netherlands have shown their best side, but this game and this tournament brought a lot of positive things to the USA.

They are a clinical striker who will not be able to make a deep breakthrough in 2026, and this young team will likely see seven or eight of the same starters on home soil as they did in Qatar. Whether Gregg Berhalter is the boss of this side is a topic for another day (would there be a difference in a more attacking lineup? How about playing more with Reina and Aaronsohn? Should Hadji Wright start against the Dutch? ), but this young core group of players can be added carefully, and the US should make the most of its 2022 experience and take it one step further by 2026 so it can take on the top 10 teams on the planet. They should be more reasonable and calm when their moment comes. They have exceeded all expectations in Qatar but there is still a sense of what could have been. This is a good thing. Provided that next time you get the most out of it.


show stars

Denzel Dumfries: Great pass on the second goal and a great finish on the third goal. Often moved forward, but also did his defensive work, clearing out of the line. What a performance by the right wing back of Inter Milan.

Daly Blind: Another full-back for the Netherlands played an incredible game, scoring and assisting, as well as keeping Weah and Desta on the flank. What a show from a veteran.

Great opportunity for Pulisic! He should have scored.


Key storylines, players to keep an eye on

The Netherlands is ranked fourth in the ELO rankings and eighth in the oft-discussed FIFA rankings, while the Yankees are ranked 20th in the ELO rankings and 16th in the FIFA rankings.

So the main storyline is whether the role of the favorite affects the Dutch at all by having that label against Ecuador, Senegal and Qatar, and whether the Yankees can channel their underdog energy effectively again as they did against England.

The big question, of course, is whether Christian Pulisic is 100%, 75% or less after the pelvic bruise sustained against Iran. While Tim Weah has been very good, and full-backs Sergino Dest and Anthony Robinson are great, Pulisic is without a doubt the focus of the U.S. defenders and offense. It’s also worth seeing if Weston McKenney can finally turn the tables on this tournament as the Juventus player has been returning to full fitness throughout the World Cup.

The Dutch were delighted with the game of 23-year-old Cody Gakpo, who scored in every game. Virgil’s defensive line against Dijk, Jurrien Timber and Nathan Ake was good, conceding just one goal, while Matthijs de Ligt started the first game in place of Timber and Stefan de Vrey loomed on the bench. With Frenkie de Jong in the center of the park, this Dutch team is very strong, even if it’s not vintage Holland.


Netherlands vs USA all time

USMNT pulled off a memorable win over the Dutch in 2015 under Jurgen Klinsmann, trailing 1-0 and 3-1 before winning 4-3 with goals from Danny Williams and Bobby Wood in the 89th and 90th minutes to take the win. Gyasi Zardes and John Brooks also scored in the game.

So far, the Dutch have won all four meetings, and all five games have been friendlies between 1998 and 2015.


Netherlands vs USA, World Cup history

The Dutch have never faced the USA in a World Cup, and the house of Johan Cruyff certainly has a more colorful tournament history.

The Netherlands, like the USMNT, missed the 2018 tournament. This absence came after he finished third in 2014 and lost in the 2010 final to Spain. They have lost three finals in total, two in the mid-1970s, and have not lost a World Cup game except on penalties since losing 1-0 to Spain in 2010.

The best USMNT tournament record ended in a controversial loss to Germany in the 2002 quarter-finals, but the Yankees have now made the playoffs on the last three occasions they have competed in the World Cup. In 2002 they only won a play-off match.

Japan, Australia and Morocco were placed in the last 16 due to a lot of upheaval during the tournament, while Germany, Denmark and Belgium were eliminated in the group stage.

From USMNT and England making it out of their group, to Lionel Messi taking out Argentina and Mexico just failing to make it out of the group stage, and among the many setbacks, there are many intriguing games in the latter stages.
