The Netherlands won the first match of the round of 16 against the USA and advanced to the Quarterfinals. Although the USA had more than 50% of the ball possession and more shots on target than the Netherlands, they could only manage to put the ball behind the net just once in the 76th minute by Haji Wright.
The Netherlands broke the deadlock and took the lead in the 10th minute from the goal of Depay. Blind doubled the lead in the 46th minute, and Dumfries eventually scored the winning goal in the 81st minute.
This is the first game in the ongoing season where Gakpo has not scored any goal. The final score is 3:1, with the Netherlands winning the game.
