After a two-day break of breathtaking matches from the group stages and round of 16, the FIFA World Cup in Qatar will resume with quarter-finals on Friday, but all eyes will be on the second match, which pits the Netherlands against Argentina.
The Netherlands were given a brief scare with Jeremie Frimpong (ankle) before their victory over the United States, but the Bayer Leverkusen right-back was a part of a fully-fit squad for that game, and Van Gaal should have everyone available for the quarter-final as well.
Netherlands vs Argentina Team News
Central defender for Inter Milan Due to discomfort, Stefan de Vrij was unable to participate in training on Sunday. However, he has since returned to the group and is now attempting to challenge the established order of Jurrien Timber, Virgil van Dijk, and Nathan Ake, even though it is likely that he will be fighting a losing battle there.
As a result of Depay’s first goal against the United States, he now has 24 goals in his last 30 matches for the Netherlands, in addition to 10 assists. The Barcelona attacker should once again team up with Gakpo in an untouched Dutch XI, and the pair should look to score.
As far as Argentina is concerned, Sevilla attacker Papu Gomez was taken off with a sprained ankle in the 50th minute against Australia and is a doubt for the competition. On the other hand, Angel Di Maria is making progress in his recovery from a quadriceps problem and should be ready to replace his ailing teammate.
Scaloni is not concerned about any other injuries and continues to have faith in the pairing of centre-backs Cristi an Romero and Nicolas Otamendi, who should continue to play together despite the persistent pressure from Lisandro Martinez.
The likes of Angel Correa and Leandro Paredes were put through their paces earlier this week in a training ground XI, but neither man is expected to displace Di Maria or the impressive Enzo Fernandez for a starting spot in the quarter-final match.
