Memphis Depay and his teammates fly to the quarterfinals of the World Cup Qatar 2022. Without much stressing, the Netherlands easily disposed of the United States, on Saturday, December 3, in the round of 16. The Dutch dominated this match from start to finish. They took the lead in the 10th minute of play. Very prolific since this World Cup, Gakpo accelerates in the axis and sends Dumfries on the right. The Inter Milan fullback found Memphis Depay on the edge of the box. The latter puts the ball in the net. Depay is now the second highest scorer for the Dutch national team with 43 goals in 85 appearances. The Barcelona striker is seven points behind Van Persie's record of 50 goals.
Louis Van Gaal's men doubled their lead in the first half thanks to Daley Blind, who was also well positioned by Dumfries. A perfect first half for the Oranje. Timothy Weah's teammates did not manage to create any danger in the Dutch area. But they managed to reduce the gap. Haji Right sent a ball over the goalkeeper from a Pulisic cross (76th). The Americans tried to equalize but were punished by Dumfries, who was on fire, at the end of the game (81st). The helpless Americans thus lost to the Netherlands. The Oranje will face Argentina who beat Australia 2-1 to set up a quarter final match up.
