USA dream ends in loss to Netherlands – Orange County Register


AL RAYYAN, Qatar — Memphis Depay and Daley Blind scored in the first half and Denzil Dumfries added a late goal as the Netherlands knocked the United States out of the World Cup with a 3-1 victory on Saturday that propelled the Dutch to the quarter-finals.

Second-half substitute Haji Wright cut the United States deficit to 2-1 in the 76th minute when Christian Pulisic’s cross hit his dragging foot and jumped over goalkeeper Andries Noppert and into the net. But Dumfries, who assisted on the first two goals, scored on a volley in the 81st.

Finalists in 1974, 1978 and 2010, the Oranje extended their unbeaten streak to 19 games and will face Argentina or Australia on Friday.
