After a win against Iran, Team USA faces another top contender in the Netherlands in its final group stage match. Gregg Berhalter’s side will look to build on its promising start against one of the most talented teams in the tournament. This rematch of the 2019 World Cup final will be the USA’s most challenging game in this round of 16 and is expected to be a close match.

Both teams are unbeaten in this tournament, and the winner of the game will clinch a spot in the quarterfinals. The USMNT entered the game with a lot of hype following their priceless 1-0 victory over Iran, but they will have to step up if they want to match their deepest run in a World Cup since 2002.

The Dutch come into this match in great form, with three wins and a tie through their first two matches. A 2-1 victory over England gave them the lead, and they followed it up with an impressive 1-0 win against tournament debutants Portugal.

This is the biggest match of the tournament for both sides. The Dutch are missing star forwards Lineth Beerensteyn (ankle) and Vivianne Miedema, who tore her ACL in December. They also are without a number of key midfielders, including Manchester City’s Davy Klaassen and FC Barcelona’s Cody Gakpo.

The USMNT has a strong defense, led by Chelsea’s Ethan Horvath. Tyler Adams has been excellent in the middle and will be critical in containing this Netherlands attack. The backline is also very good, with the likes of Jordan Morris and Josh Sargent making life difficult for opponents.
