Netherlands' Memphis Depay celebrates scoring their first goal as Tim Ream of the US looks dejected buring the World Cup Round of 16 match between Netherlands and United States at Khalifa International Stadium, Doha, Qatar, 3 December 2022.

Goals from Memphis Depay and Daley Blind gave the Netherlands a 2-0 halftime lead over the United States at the Khalifa International Stadium on Saturday in the first knockout match of the World Cup.

Depay's wonderful finish from a free-flowing team move in the 10th minute broke the deadlock, and Blind delivered another blow just before the break to put the Dutch on course for a quarter-final clash with Argentina or Australia.
