Netherlands vs Argentina, FIFA World Cup 2022
On Saturday, the Lusail Stadium will host a pivotal second quarterfinal match between Virgil van Dijk, the Netherlands, Lionel Messi and Argentina. When Nahuel Molina finished an excellent chance for Argentina, Lionel Messi made the difference.
Messi played a superb through pass to the defence for Argentina, who finished the play brilliantly. Argentina took a one-goal lead into halftime, and the Netherlands were unable to respond.
Lionel Messi scored a penalty early in the second half to double La Albiceleste’s lead. An unlikely comeback for the Netherlands was given new life by Wout Weghorst’s goal late in the second half.
