All of today’s WorldCup22 match results are now here. The Round of 16 has finally commenced, let’s check everything you might have missed!

The Rundown: Netherlands vs USA

In the Round of 16, the United States faced the No. 8 ranked Netherlands, and while they were always at a disadvantage, they still felt that they had a shot at advancing to their second World Cup quarterfinal.

But they came up short, losing by a score of 3-1 after goals from Memphis Depay, Daley Blind, and Denzel Dumfries. The difference was in front of the goal when the Dutch scored on their three finest opportunities while the Americans missed many more.

One of the exciting highlights at our recent World Cup 2022 free livestream was when Christian Pulisic had a huge chance in the third minute, but Andries Noppert made a save.

The United States’ poor defensive performances and attacking weaknesses stayed with them from that point on, and the Netherlands took full advantage. Overall, the United States created plenty of chances at different periods in the game, but only scored one, on a lucky bounce off the foot of replacement Haji Wright.

Player of the game: Denzel Dumfries

Dumfries was already the most significant player on the field before he scored the game-winning goal. Marking him, Antonee Robinson consistently struggled to contain him on the right flank, allowing him easy access to the goal or hazardous passing lanes for his teammates.

Robinson, who appeared to be exhausted by the time he was taken out in the 92nd minute, misread his movement, which left Dumfries wide open at the far post for his goal.

The Dutch backed off from the opening whistle, giving the Americans control of the ball. The early goal demonstrated the danger posed by Van Gaal’s squad when they surged up the field while in control, but it almost backfired when Pulisic was passed in and ought to have finished a one-on-one.

The United States have never advanced past the quarterfinals of the World Cup again, while the Netherlands will encounter either Australia or Argentina in the next round. All the latest schedules can be found on our World Cup 2022 fixtures Singapore time page.

The Rundown: Argentina vs Australia

Despite Australia’s best efforts, they were eliminated in the round of eight of the 2022 World Cup as Lionel Messi led Argentina to another victory in his milestone 1,000th career game.

Messi started the attack in the first half with a left-footed curling effort after sprinting into the box. Argentina had been having trouble breaking down the stubborn Socceroos.

After 57 minutes, with Argentina appearing out of reach, Australia’s goalkeeper made a blunder, giving Argentina’s Julian Alvarez a simple chance to score it 2-0.

Craig Goodwin’s shot bounced in off Enzo Fernandez to give Australia a late glimmer of hope. Great tackling by Lisandro Martinez stopped Aziz Behich’s twisting run into the area, and Emi Martinez made a close-range save on an effort by Garang Kuol in the 97th minute.

Player of the game: Lionel Messi

Messi’s performance in this game was his finest of the tournament. He took more shots and made more opportunities than anyone else. In order to fully enjoy the game, he had to use his powers to gain access to Australia. Argentina hopes this is a precursor to better times ahead.

Messi’s efforts to gain space when the opponent is intent on restricting him have been a hallmark of Argentina’s performances despite the fact that the team has been heavily World Cup betting odds 2022 favored in every game so far. If Argentina are successful in Qatar, however, they will face a new set of challenges.

It’s possible that Aziz Behich will come to regret confronting Messi. The game was remarkably quiet until the Argentina captain made a rare effort to push, which forced the left back to square up to him and subsequently give away a careless free kick. What was at stake shifted. Then, naturally, we got the desired result.Our daily recap of the completed Round of 16 matches is now complete.
