Netherlands vs USA head to head today. The Netherlands will face the United States in the World Cup knockout stage for the fourth time in five years, with Louis van Gaal’s side having advanced to the Round of 16 after defeating Iran in the last group stage match.
Captain Christian Pulisic scored the game’s only goal, igniting wild celebrations and sending the USMNT into the first knockout phase for the third time in four finals competitions.
After failing to advance further on each of those times, the United States is aiming for a quarterfinals spot for the first time since 2002 against opponents they have never faced in a World Cup.

Lineups for Netherlands vs USA:
The most severe injury issue for the United States is Christian Pulisic’s pelvic contusion suffered when scoring the game-winning goal against Iran.
The Chelsea forward was replaced in that game and brought to a local hospital as a “precaution,” according to the team. Pulisic was seen celebrating with the team hotel players that night and told a reporter that he will be ready to play.
Josh Sargent was forced to leave the game after landing awkwardly on the ball. He was observed crying on the sidelines and underwent scans the next day. His condition is unknown, but a photo Tim Ream uploaded on Wednesday morning of him playing pool with Sargent showed the striker standing up and smiling.
USA’s expected lineup (4-3-3, from left to right): 1. Turner (GK) — 2. Dest, Carter-Vickers, 20. 13. Ream, 8. McKennie, 5. Robinson 4. Adams, Musah — 21, Weah — 24, Sargent — 10, Pulisic
Memphis Depay missed the Netherlands’ first group stage game, came off the bench for their second game, then started and played 60 minutes against Qatar.
It’s unclear how match-fit the Barcelona forward is currently after missing two months of club activity leading up to the World Cup, but he appears set to resume his career.
Georginio Wijnaldum, who injured his leg in August and could not join the squad, is the team’s prominent absentee.
Netherlands (5-3-2, right to left): 23. Noppert (GK), 22. Dumfries, 2. Timber, 4. Van Dijk, 5. Ake, 17. Blind — 15. De Roon, 21. De Jong, 14. Klaassen — 8. Gakpo, 10. Depay
Odds and prediction for the Netherlands vs USA:
The Netherlands are the favourite to extend their 18-match unbeaten streak, which includes five wins in their last six games.
The USA demonstrated their toughness by emerging from a group with three opponents ranked in FIFA’s top 20. Only one of Gregg Berhalter’s team’s last eight matches has produced more than two goals.
BetMGM (USA), Sports Interaction (Canada), SkyBet (UK), and Ladbrokes offer odds.
