Two heavyweight sides will meet in a massive quarterfinal clash as the Netherlands look to end Argentina’s run to a World Cup victory in Lionel Messi’s swansong on the world stage.
Argentina recovered from a shock loss to Saudi Arabia by winning their next three matches, with their latest one being a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Australia in the Round of 16 that saw Messi score in his 1,000th match.
It wasn’t an easy game, with a late goal for Australia making for a nervy ending that required keeper Emiliano Martinez to make a superb save from Garang Kuol, but the sign of a truly championship team is the ability to win ugly.
The Netherlands, despite being undefeated so far in this World Cup, have gone relatively under the radar compared to the other heavyweight sides. They weren’t at their best in the group stages but still topped their group, before defeating USA 3-1 in a match that showcased their composure and skill over their opponent.
Coming up against an Argentina side backed by many before the tournament to have a magical run to the final and supported by hordes of travelling fans will be by far the biggest test for Louis van Gaal’s men, but they will feel they have the experience and quality in key areas to nullify the attacking threats posed by La Albiceleste.
Here’s everything you need to know to watch the match in Australia on TV or online via live stream.
