After finishing second behind England in Group B, the USA will now face Group A winners and European powerhouse the Netherlands in the Round of 16 at this year's World Cup. 

While the Dutch may not have produced the most eye-catching of performances in the group stage, one player that has caught the attention of fans is 23-year-old winger Cody Gakpo. 

With three goals to his name so far at Qatar 2022, Gakpo will be looking to add more to his tally and will definitely be someone who USA manager Gregg Berhalter will be looking to keep quiet. 

Another concern for the U.S. was the fitness of star man Christian Pulisic who collided with Iran's goalkeeper after scoring his team's winning goal in their final group stage game on Tuesday. 

However, Pulisic confirmed that he should be available for this knockout clash with the Netherlands in a social media post which will be a welcomed boost for his team. 

This is a classic David vs. Goliath matchup, but with the boundless energy that the USA have shown in all three group stage matches, the Netherlands will still have to earn their way into the quarter-finals. 

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Saturday's match.
