22:33 (IST)3 DEC 2022

22:32 (IST)3 DEC 2022

22:31 (IST)3 DEC 2022

A couple of tweets before we end.

22:30 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Next up for Netherlands will be either be Argentina or Australia.

22:24 (IST)3 DEC 2022

FULL-TIME! Netherlands 3 USA 1. Netherlands showed their class and clinical finishing ability to see off USA's challenge and book a place in the quarter-final. Goals from Depay, Blind and Dumfries cancelled out Haji Wright's in the 2nd half. 

22:20 (IST)3 DEC 2022

6 minutes of added time.

22:11 (IST)3 DEC 2022

That goal should settle it for Netherlands. Unless USA can do something again.

22:09 (IST)3 DEC 2022

GOAL! Denzel Dumfries in the 81st minute! Netherlands 3 USA 1. Such poor defending from USA. Dumfries is left all alone on the right and he is found by a floated ball, still he has to finish and he does so - with a left-footed pass into the corner. Netherlands can now breathe easy again.

22:07 (IST)3 DEC 2022

USA going for it now. Pulisic drives straight at Noppert. 

22:05 (IST)3 DEC 2022

GOAL! Haji Wright in the 75th minute! Netherlands 2 USA 1. The goal does come finally. Pulisic is found with a brilliant pass and he is free on the right with space, he squares it to the middle, Wright tries a cheeky backheel which skews high in the air and somehow loops into the goal beating the desperate efforts of the goalie and defender to hack it away. Game on!

22:04 (IST)3 DEC 2022

WHAT A CHANCE FOR USA but Haji Wright after rounding the keeper goes too far wide and his shot which is goalbound is cleared off the line. That was a glorious opportunity after a Dutch midfielder turned back and played a horror backpass.

22:00 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Brilliant double save from Matt Turner. First he keeps out a shot and then pushes the follow-up header away as well. USA being kept in this by Turner.

22:00 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Two changes for USA: Wright replaces Weah, while Aaronson replaces McKennie.

21:49 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Good save by Matt Turner to turn Depay's shot over. After Netherlands hit USA on the counter.

21:48 (IST)3 DEC 2022

YELLOW CARD TO Teun Koopmeiners for a rash foul on the left hand side of his half.

21:41 (IST)3 DEC 2022

A chance for Weston McKennie but he can't keep the shot down and it goes over the crossbar.

21:38 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Almost an own goal but Matt Turner is there to push it away with Depay lurking for the tap-in.

21:37 (IST)3 DEC 2022

A chance for USA as the ball falls to a white shirt but the shot is cleared off the line.

21:34 (IST)3 DEC 2022

USA too make a change: Gio Reyna comes on for Ferreira.

21:34 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Double change for Netherlands: Teun Koopmeiners replaces Davy Klaassen, while Steven Bergwijn replaces Marten de Roon.

21:33 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Second half begins.

21:18 (IST)3 DEC 2022

HALF-TIME! Netherlands 2 USA 0. After Pulisic missed an early chance when he shot straight at the keeper, goals from Depay and Blind has given Netherlands a nice cushion at the break. USA need to get things right to come back into this one from here.

21:17 (IST)3 DEC 2022

GOAL! Daley Blind in the 46th minute! Netherlands 2 USA 0. Again USA have been cut open down the right, Blind from left-back comes in on the blindside of his man and the cross is side-footed past a stranded keeper. Simple finish and USA have a long way back now.

21:16 (IST)3 DEC 2022

A minute of added time.

21:16 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Two chances in the space of minutes for USA - first George Weah tests Noppert with a drive from outside the box and then Dest with a driving run has his shot cleared.

20:58 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Nothing much after the goal. Things have calmed down for sure.

20:46 (IST)3 DEC 2022

First time that Netherlands attacked and they just sliced through the USMNT defence.

20:41 (IST)3 DEC 2022

GOAL! Memphis Depay in the 10th minute! Netherlands 1 USA 0. Depay may not be fully fit but for sure he knows where the goal is. Netherlands' wing-backs get down the right and Depay is found in the middle with space and time to shoot, he side-foots a finish to the far corner past the dive of the keeper. Depay does his trademark - fingers in his ears celebration!

20:34 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Big chance for Christian Pulisic and Noppert saves with his feet. Blind from left-back is slow in coming out and he plays Pulisic onside, the striker with just the goalkeeper to beat, fails to do so.

20:31 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Relief for Christian Pulisic after he was declared fit for tonight's clash. Pulisic had been a doubt to play after suffering a pelvic contusion in his collision with Iran's goalkeeper as he scored the match-winning goal on Tuesday.

19:20 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Also Louis van Gaal criticised the press back home for the constant negative coverage about their national side.

"In 2014 it was exactly the same, it was not different. It was very negative," said Van Gaal.

"But, exact same thing now, same old, so I'm used to it and I think my players are also used to it.

"We're going to calmly continue on the path that we've embarked on."

19:19 (IST)3 DEC 2022

The USA have an excellent team according to Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal. 

"They [USA] have an excellent team, I would say even one of the best teams," said Van Gaal.

"It will be a tough match, but it's nothing we can't overcome. We also have a good team.

"But I'm not going to downplay the USA. I think they're an example of what a good team is.

"There are teams who have progressed who are not good teams, but who have great individual quality."

19:10 (IST)3 DEC 2022

Before we head any further, let's take a look at the pre-match stats courtesy BBC:

Netherlands have won four of their five friendly matches with USA.

They can make the quarter-finals in three successive World Cup appearances for the first time.

Louis Van Gaal (W7, D3) can become the third coach to remain unbeaten in each of his first 11 World Cup matches (shootouts classed as draw), after Luiz Felipe Scolari (12 for Brazil and Portugal, 2002-2006) and Mario Zagallo (11 for Brazil, 1970-1974).

USA have reached the last 16 in three successive World Cups (2010, 2014, 2022) for the first time.
