The Netherlands beat USA 3-1
Holland easily defeated the USA 3-1 in the first match of the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar.
Despite the high hopes of one of the three national teams that will host the next World Cup (USA, Mexico, Canada), Greg Berhalter’s team failed to triumph despite scoring 1:2 in the 76th minute.
Just five minutes later, the hero of this duel, Denzel Dumfries, after two assists, scored a goal that put the Dutch in control of the game.
Despite their elimination, the American selection left a good impression. It is the second youngest team in the tournament with an average age of 25.2.
The team will undoubtedly be at a high level at the next World Cup, presumably still under the guidance of Greg Berhalter, although his contract with the Federation, signed in December 2018, has just expired.
The Netherlands will face Argentina on Friday 9 December at the Lusail Iconic Stadium at 7 pm. Ready to place a bet on Wintop?
