For the sixth time in World Cup history, Netherlands and Argentina will go head-to-head.
Argentina prevailed in the 1978 final and when they last clashed in the semi-finals eight years ago. Netherlands, meanwhile, came out on top in 1974 and 1998, but who will move one step closer to glory in Lusail?
Holland kicked off the knockout stages on Saturday, proving to be simply too strong for the United States. Memphis and then Daley Blind slotted home in the first half before the other wing-back, Denzel Dumfires, sealed the 3-1 victory late on.
Louis van Gaal led Oranje to the World Cup semi-finals in 2014 and, across three spells, is unbeaten in 36 competitive internationals, dating back to 2001.
This, of course, excludes penalty shootouts, with Argentina ending Netherlands’ run via that method in Brazil eight years ago. Back then, la Albiceleste’s dreams were shattered by Germany so, this time, they’re doubly determined to go all the way.
In the round of 16, Lionel Scaloni’s side ousted surprise-package Australia 2-1 with Lionel Messi, who else, and then Julián Álvarez on target at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium. The reigning Copa America winners genuinely believe that this is their time, even if fierce rivals Brazil, potentially, lie in wait in the semi-finals.
Before then of course, an extremely tough to call quarter-final that promises to be a classic. Don’t be surprised if this clash at Lusail Iconic Stadium goes the distance.
