Home   /   Pulisic Returns for Netherlands Clash

The Americans have their star winger back in action after Pulisic sacrificed his pelvis for knockout football on Tuesday.

The match against Iran lived up to all expectations. It was frenetic, desperate, and at times nauseating.

All throughout the group stages, the US pushed the tempo through pace all over the pitch. Frankly, no team were able to match their speed man-for-man, and that’s largely due to record-breaking youth.

The Americans name a largely unchanged lineup, with the exception of Jesus Ferreira taking Josh Sargent’s 9 spot.

The Netherlands are arguably one of the most well-rounded teams in the World Cup. They have classy youngsters and seasoned veterans all over the pitch.

However, their group stage performances have been largely underwhelming despite winning their group.

In fact, they only managed eight shots on target through three matches. They scored five of those, so their clinical finishing must be respected.

Look for PSV Eindhoven forward Cody Gakpo to be a difference maker in this match.

The US conceded no goals from open play and proved their ability to form blistering counters. With that in mind, they should be keen to shock the Dutch today.
