How to watch Netherlands vs USA: The Dutch face the United States in the first Round of 16 game at the FIFA World Cup 2022. Can Holland see off the vibrant young Americans? Here’s how to watch.
The United States could pull off the biggest result in their footballing (Actually, “It’s called soccer!” if you listen to the U.S. fans) history if they can defeat Holland, who’ve looked the part at the tournament thus far.
For the U.S. to pull off the upset, much will depend on whether Christian Pulisic recovers from the pelvic contusion he suffered in scoring the winning goal against Iran on Tuesday, which sealed the Americans’ progress to the last 16. The U.S. have only reached the quarter-finals once before, in 2002, so a win here would equal their best ever performance at a men’s World Cup.
However, the Netherlands are heavily favoured to progress. Led by Virgil van Dijk, the Oranje have looked solid at the back and clinical going forward thanks to the emergence of PSV Eindhoven forward Cody Gapko, who has scored in every game thus far.
This game is in the opposite side of the draw to England, so it won’t necessarily affect the Three Lions until the final. Most England fans would bite your hands off for a meeting with the USA or the Netherlands!
This is the first of the Last 16 games, being played between Saturday December 3 and Tuesday December 6. Here’s how to watch Netherlands vs USA on the best TV, smartphone, or best tablet you have in the house.
