The United States Men's National Team can earn one of the most significant victories in the team's history when the Americans face the Netherlands on Saturday in a Round of 16 match at the 2022 World Cup at Khalifa International Stadium in Ar-Rayyan. The Americans are trying to win a knockout stage match in the World Cup for just the second time.

Why you should back the Netherlands
The Dutch have been unbeatable under manager Louis van Gaal. Since the 71-year-old van Gaal began his third stint as manager of the Oranje in August 2021, the Netherlands have 13 wins and five draws in 18 matches. That run includes two wins over Belgium and Wales and one over Denmark. The last time the Dutch lost came in June 2021, when the Czech Republic ousted them in the Round of 16 at the European championships.
In addition, the Netherlands have a world class center back in Virgil van Dijk. The 31-year-old Liverpool defender leads the team in interceptions (three) and aerial duels won (11) at the 2022 World Cup. He also ranks third on the team in passes completed (181). See which team to pick here.
Why you should back the USA
Christian Pulisic has been cleared to play on Saturday. Arguably the face of the team, the 24-year-old Pulisic suffered a pelvic contusion when scoring the only goal in the Americans' 1-0 victory over Iran on Tuesday. He was forced out of that game at halftime, and his status was day-to-day before being cleared on Friday. His playmaking ability on the left wing will be key if the USA hope to advance.
In addition, the Americans have created more scoring chances through three matches than the Dutch. The USA have created 23 chances to the Netherlands' 19 in Qatar. The Americans also have created four "big chances," which ranks fifth among World Cup teams, while the Dutch have created only one. See which team to pick here.
