Netherlands vs USA

The Netherlands had a game plan in which the United States played. Despite this, the United States was just a few touches better to make it a real contest. There’s plenty to be excited about with this young American team, and it has four years to re-kit for the 2026 World Cup, which the United States will co-host with Canada and Mexico.

The Netherlands will continue their tournament with a quarter-final match against Argentina on Friday (2 p.m. ET on FOX and the FOX Sports app).

Argentina 2, Australia 1

Australia’s Cinderella story ended on Saturday, but it gave Argentina a hard time until the final whistle. If it hadn’t been for a timely tackle from Lisandro Martinez and an incredible save from Emiliano Martinez, it would have been extended. Australian players can leave the tournament with their heads held high.

SAVE OF THE DAY

Everyone in the Argentina squad owes dinner to Emiliano Martinez for letting them go home an hour earlier than they would have if he hadn’t saved that shot from Australia’s Garang Kuol.
