World Cup quarter-finals: Argentina and the Netherlands clashed, Brazil will play Croatia

The quarter-finals of the 2022 FIFA World Cup kick off on Thursday when Argentina and the Netherlands clash at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.

Lionel Messi’s teammates struggled with Australia in their last match and they will need to be more judgmental in attack against a solid Dutch defense that has only conceded two goals in Qatar so far.

Dutch manager Louis van Gaal’s team beat the United States 3-1 and finished in their last eight matches. They will rely on Virgil Van Dijk’s defensive leadership as well as the magic of Cody Gakpo in the final third.

Argentina may be a slight favourite, but history does not favor coach Lionel Scaloni’s men as they have failed to score in any of their last three matches against the Netherlands.

Brazil will play Croatia in the other quarter-final.
