34. Netherlands 1-0 USA The Netherlands are a puzzle that the USA simply cannot work out at the moment. They are constantly trying to build attacks down the middle of the pitch, and are used to their high intensity game being matched by their opponents. But, the Netherlands have been clever, and are just sitting off of the USA and forcing them to play their way. 32.
Netherlands 1-0 USA Against the run of play, Netherlands are swept in front by Memphis Depay! 8. Netherlands 0-0 USA The bright US start continues, as Christian Pulisic drives down the left hand side and gets a good ball into the middle for Weah. The American is beaten to it and the Netherlands spring an attack on the US defence, but Memphis Depay's shot is scuffed.
"What a brilliant goal it was at the Khalifa to give Holland the lead against the USA on ten minutes. "Critics of the Dutch style, of which there are many back home in the Netherlands, could not argue with this fantastic move finished off by Memphis Depay. "It involved 20 uninterrupted passes, the most by a Dutch team at a World Cup since these statistics began being recorded in 1966. "The defence to attack move finished with Cody Gakpo spreading the ball wide to Denzel Dumfries who spotted Depay had slowed his run to hang just inside the area unmarked. "He picked him out and the Barcelona man’s first time finish from 16 yards with his instep was perfect, across Matt Turner and into the far side of the goal. "After being out injured with a hamstring injury since mid-September, Memphis has had to be eased into this tournament by Louis van Gaal.
A great bit of play from the USA found Serginio Dest in the middle, but he was unable to pick out an attacker to strike the ball at goal. The Dutch again fled towards the USA goal with Cody Gakpo, but his pass at the final moment towards Depay was cut out by Zimmerman. 42. Netherlands 1-0 USA Chance for USA! Great strike from Timothy Weah, who resembled his Dad with a strike like that from outside the box.
6. Netherlands 0-0 USA An early update from Martin Lipton who is out in Qatar watching this one, as he reacts to that early Christian Pulisic chance: "The Americans came out of the blocks fast in all three group games and it’s already a similar story here. "Pulisic will know he should have scored when the flag rightly stayed down - Blind, slow out on the far side, played him on - but the shot was at the keeper. "Chelsea fans may not have been shocked. " That is from Martin Lipton, who is at the game in Qatar. 4. Netherlands 0-0 USA The Netherlands need to settle down a bit here, they are being overrun by Christian Pulisic and co who are so athletic and good without the ball. The Oranje need to establish some control and beat the USA press. 2. Netherlands 0-0 USA Great chance for USA early on! And it falls to Christian Pulisic! It is the USA who have dominated the opening two minutes of the proceedings, and a little dinked ball finds the Chelsea attacker who has ghosted in behind.
Really powerful effort, hit on the half volley, that was well saved by Noppert. 40. Netherlands 1-0 USA Better from the US, who drive down the right -side with Timothy Weah, but again it is let down with the final ball. This time it is Christian Pulisic, who picked the ball up in the Dutch box and played a poor ball away from Antonee Robinson. 38. Netherlands 1-0 USA Apart from that opening chance that really should have seen them take the lead, it has been a toothless performance from the USA. They look pretty good until the ball gets into the final third, at which point the final pass and a deadly finisher are both missing in action.
20. Netherlands 1-0 USA It's always good to see that your opinion on a game is backed up by an expert, and Martin Lipton's analysis on this one from Qatar backs up our previous post, this is what he had to say... "Dutch are happy to let the US come at them. "Even happier now they’re in front. "Depay and Gakpo are pretty confident they have at least one more between them on the counter if their side can win the ball back high enough.
Netherlands 1-0 USA Jordan Davies, who is at the game has his say on criticism towards the Dutch team which was directed at Louis van Gaal, and how they have reacted to that... "Dutch boss Louis van Gaal has been on the receiving end of some pretty heavy criticism during this World Cup for his team's dull and predictable style of play. "But that goal was a blast from the past, during the days of Joahan Cruyff and Total Football. "Memphis Depay's goal ended a sequence of TWENTY uninterrupted passes, the most on record for Holland at a World Cup since 1966.
His strike is low and on target but brilliantly saved by the feet of Noppert! 0. Netherlands 0-0 USA The referee gets the game underway, and you'll be glad to know that Martin Lipton in Qatar is as excited as we all are for the knockouts to begin... "The REAL World Cup begins here. "The group stage is getting your drive away on a par five.

Netherlands 1-0 USA Weston McKennie as the spare player in midfield needs to start driving with the ball when he picks it up. They are starting to look a bit timid on the ball and afraid of going forwards, perhaps because they know what the Netherlands can do to them on the break. 24. Netherlands 1-0 USA The Netherlands are controlling the tempo of this one now, and are letting the USA come at them with Timothy Weah and Serginio Dest on the right-hand side. It will be interesting to see how the game changes if the US can get a goal back.
But he is up and running now. " Dutch courage This is what the match stats look like at half-time... It could have been so different when Christian Pulisic got through on goal in the first two minutes, but he was denied by Noppert.
