The Netherlands have a tricky test in the form of the United States awaiting them in the round of 16 of the FIFA World Cup 2022. The Dutch nation will be the favourites on paper, however, football is not played on paper and anything can happen during the 90 minutes. Besides, these are knockout rounds, hence a draw cannot be the final scoreline. If it ends on level terms, the match will go to 30-minute extra-time or penalty shootouts. Therefore, a result will be produced one way or another in this encounter on Saturday night.
