Should be a walk-in-the-park for the mighty unbeaten USA.

Rooting for the US, but wouldn't be surprised with a late heartbreaker by the Netherlands.

Holland might snatch a win here, but they are far from a serious candidate to win the trophy. However, feels like USA has nothing to lose, so any match they will be playing from now on, it's like a bonus. They say, beware of one who has nothing to lose.

Netherlands play tournament football, it looks bad but it somehow works. This game is totally a 50-50 for me, but I'll put the vote for the dutch, because I don't know if Pulisic will play.

Hup Holland hup.

In terms of football skills we are the better team but in terms of energy and commitment the USA is a better team. It's going to be interesting.

Worst two teams that made it out of group stages….. hope game isn’t a bore fest.

Was worried when Dumfries went down. Hope he scores today so some dumb epl team gives us a truckload of money for him

US are playing well but are being too cute with the ball.

US were playing good, that second goal was unexpected.

I didn't believe the guy in the media who said that they are playing on "Battery Save Mode" deliberately, only doing what's absolutely necessary & nothing more. But it looks like he might be right

Counter tactics are never great to look at, but they have lost out after playing pretty football so many times. While the counter teams went on to win the title. Perhaps they're trying it the other way around now?

Despite good results in recent years, everyone believes that they're a weak team right now. Despite them being one of the only teams that hasn't lost a game, even if it did look poor. Nobody knows what to expect and who to look out for, apart from Gakpo. And perhaps that's exactly what they want

It's remarkable that guys like Dumfries suddenly find form when it really matters, at least.
