THE NETHERLANDS are in the Round of 16 where they will play USA TODAY in a delicious World Championship match.
The Dutch led Group A after scoring seven points in their three group stage games.
Cody Gakpo has also announced himself on the world stage as he tops the Qatar Golden Boot race.
But they face a tricky test next as they prepare for a clash with USA, who managed to draw 0-0 against the top scorers at the World Cup in England.
The USA qualified for the knockout stages of the competition with a 1-0 win over Iran.
And against the Netherlands, who, like their opponents in the round of 16, failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, they will certainly have a chance.
How did you come here?
The Netherlands finished the group stage on top and undefeated, only Ecuador managed to get a point from them.
2-0 victories over Senegal and Qatar on both sides of Ecuador put Louis Van Gaal’s side on pole.
It was a little more difficult for the USA, who secured a place in the knockout rounds with one win and two draws.
After two points from their first two games against Wales and England, a Christian Pulisic goal secured the win against Iran and put the Americans second in the group.
Pulisic should be ready despite being substituted at half-time against Iran.
The Chelsea forward scored the winning goal but was injured after colliding with the Iranian keeper in front of the net.
The injury was diagnosed as a pelvic contusion and Pulisic has stated he will be ready to take on Virgil van Dijk and co.
Cody Gakpo will be part of the Dutch forward line again, looking to add to his three-goal tally in Qatar.
Who will the star men be?
PSV superstar Gakpo has exploded on the world stage during the competition, becoming the first Dutch player to score in all three group games.
The 23-year-old forward will be looking to add to his three-goal tally that puts him at the top of the Golden Boot race.
Pulisic was the man who pulled the strings for USA, scoring the crucial goal against Iran and winning the man of the match against England.
Fellow striker Timothy Weah has also put in some impressive performances and will look to improve on his goal in the opening game against Wales.
What is head to head?
The Dutch prevailed in four of the five matches between the two sides, all of which were international friendlies.
However, in their most recent game, USA prevailed 4-3 on the right in a seven-goal thriller.
