See the United States do look good going forward... but are leaving themselves short consequently at the back! World Cup 2022: Netherlands 1-0 USA15:16, Kieran Jackson14 mins: Pulisic finds some room once more down the left but - unlike Dumfires moments earlier - he can’t pick out one of his attacking options in the box! Straight down the other end, a better touch from Cody Gakpo would have seen him soar past Tim Ream - yet he gets the ball stuck under his feet and the US regroup. Terrific start to this match! World Cup 2022: Netherlands 1-0 USA (Depay, 10)15:11, Kieran JacksonGOAL! With their first attack of the game, the Netherlands have taken the lead! It’s Memphis Depay with the goal - such a cool finish! Lovely move from the Dutch: Gakpo plays in Dumfries down the right and his cross into the box is perfect for Depay to finish first-time into the corner! No chance for Matt Turner! Louis van Gaal’s side in front against the run of play!

Netherlands vs USA LIVE: World Cup 2022 result, final score and reaction as Dutch reach quarter-finalsThe Netherlands face the USA as the World Cup knockout stage begins in Qatar. The opening last-16 clash of the tournament sees the winners of Group A, the Netherlands, take on the runners-up of Group B, the USA, with a place in the quarter-finals up for grabs. It’s been an unpredictable World Cup so far, perhaps the most ever following a chaotic group stage, and both of these teams will be looking to defy the odds and embark on a deep tournament run. Louis van Gaal’s Dutch side have faced criticism back home for the manner in which they finished ahead of Senegal, Ecuador and Qatar in Group A, with the goals of breakout star forward Cody Gakpo so far being their lone bright spark. The USA, meanwhile, are daring to dream after battling past Iran to qualify behind England in Group B.
World Cup 2022: Netherlands 2-0 USA16:08, Kieran Jackson51 mins: What a threat Dumfires has been down the right! Once again his cross into the box is dangerous, deflecting off Zimmerman and forcing Turner to make a quick-reaction save, before Dest clears. World Cup 2022: Netherlands 2-0 USA16:07, Kieran Jackson50 mins: Oh so close for the USA! Tim Ream looks to bundle the ball home from close range after a knockdown from the corner...
His winning goal, just before half-time of this 1-0 win at Thumama Stadium, gave the US the three points they needed to progress in second place from Group B alongside England, a third spot in the knockout rounds in as many tournaments. He had come close against the Three Lions four days ago, hitting Jordan Pickford’s crossbar in a game the US could and should have won, but made no mistake when presented with the best opening in this one to score a first-ever World Cup goal. The injury gained while firing home and that forced him off here will have a country sweating between now and a date with the Netherlands on Saturday, but that can wait for another day after a hard-earned and highly-charged victory that will be felt from Texas to Tehran. “Why is it that you should not ask your government to take away its military fleet from the Persian Gulf? ”, coach Gregg Berhalter was asked in his pre-match press conference.
World Cup 2022: Netherlands 1-0 USA15:44, Kieran Jackson43 mins: Great strike from Timothy Weah! Noppert saves well from the US striker’s powerful long-range strike - terrific hit! USA probing here.... World Cup 2022: Netherlands 1-0 USA15:43, Kieran Jackson42 mins: It’s a poor layoff from Pulisic at the end there! Weah surges down the right and with his back to goal, Pulisic looks to lay-off Robinson but it skids wide - with the left back unable to fashion anything with the cross.
Blind’s celebration with his father, Danny, one of Van Gaal’s assistants, was one for the ages: son clasping father’s face with his hands, the pair almost nose to nose. And then, five minutes after Wright scored with an unintentional but still mesmerising reverse chip of a finish for the US, Blind returned the favour, dispatching an inch perfect cross that Dumfries volleyed home. Cruyff used to love a full-back to full-back goal. One assumes he would make allowances for two from wing-back to wing-back.
But their goals were classically Dutch or at least a version of – a long, dazzling passing medley for the first, wing-back teeing up wing-back for the second and third – and there was enjoyment and entertainment to be had in watching all of them unfold. What should we call it, then? Total tournament football? Pragmatism personified with a sprinkling of panache? Having led the Dutch to a third place finish at the 2014 finals in Brazil when his style of play also sparked anger in Holland, Van Gaal knows how to navigate a World Cup and will also know that the tournament’s most successful teams are not always the most thrilling to watch. For all the lavish praise heaped on Spain, when they won two Euros and the World Cup between 2008 and 2012, it is easy to forget that their success in South Africa in 2010 was founded less on tika-taka flair than a miserly defence. Spain only scored eight goals in seven games but kept five clean sheets and conceded just twice.
Argentina, France, Spain, Portugal and Brazil all suffered defeats against lower-ranked opposition on the way to qualifying for the last 16, while Germany and Belgium exited the competition on the back of shock losses. Is this unprecedented or simply the continuation of a trend? Here, we compare group stage results in 2022 with the previous six World Cups contested by 32 teams. This is the first World Cup since the expansion to 32 teams in which no team has qualified from the group stage with a 100 per cent record. Is this the most unpredictable World Cup in recent history?

The World Cup group stage has thrown up its fair share of surprises in 2022.
The rest is something to cry about. As a football lover I asked myself: ‘What am I looking at? ’ Zero initiative, ” Marco van Basten, the former Dutch striker, fumed at half-time from a television studio. It is certainly hard to believe too many other nations critiquing a game plan executed with conviction and burnished by three bewitching goals but Louis van Gaal, it is clear, is here to win the tournament, not plaudits, and is prepared to tailor his needs regardless of all the noise back home. In this instance, USA had no answer to his instruction for his team to give up the ball and break quickly and directly on the counter-attack but this was not a complete rejection of Total Football. Yes, Netherlands had just 42 per cent possession and it was anything but a classically Dutch approach.

“It was a fantastic team goal and this is where you see the core of the system being executed, ” Dumfries said. What a game Inter Milan’s Dumfries had: two assists and a goal and a constant thorn in American sides, the Dutch exploiting the space in behind the USA full-backs time and again to superb effect. At this rate, it is not just Gakpo who will be inviting offers in the January transfer window. Goal two saw Dumfries, from a near identical position, pull the ball back for Blind to steer home.
