Cody Gakpo has announced himself on the world stage too, as he sits joint-top of the Golden Boot race in Qatar.

But they have a tricky test to face next, as they prepare for a clash against USA, who managed to get a 0-0 draw out of top scorers at the World Cup England.

The US managed to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition with a 1-0 win over Iran.

And they’ll certainly fancy their chances against the Netherlands who, like their last-16 opponents, failed to qualify for the World Cup in 2018.

It was a slightly more difficult for the USA who earned a win and two draws to secure their place in the knockout round.

After two points from their first two games against Wales and England, a Christian Pulisic goal gave them the win against Iran, propelling the Yanks to second in the group.

Team news

Pulisic should be ready despite coming off at half time against Iran.

The Chelsea forward scored the winning goal but was injured after clashing with the Iran goalkeeper before netting.

The injury was diagnosed as a pelvic contusion and Pulisic has declared he will be raring to go against Virgil van Dijk and Co.

Cody Gakpo will be part of Netherlands’ forward line again, and he’ll be looking to add to his tally of three goals in Qatar.
