Dutch Mantra or Messi Mantra | Sports | Deshabhimani

‘We have a score to settle before two World Cups. Lionel Messi is a dangerous player. But if he loses the ball, he can’t do anything’ – Dutch coach Louis van Gaal has definite plans. Argentina, who reach the quarter-finals, are worried about Van Gaal’s tactics. The 71-year-old knows exactly which game to turn to when needed. Van Gaal has also suffered a penalty shootout loss to Messi and his team in the semi-final of the World Cup 2014. The fight is at 12.30 o’clock at the Lusail Stadium.

Messi is the energy of Argentina. No move is complete without knowing the 35-year-old’s feet on the pitch. This time it’s a great performance. Scored three goals. Paved the way for one. He appeared as a savior at every critical moment. Against the Dutchman, the hopes of Lionel Scoloni and his team rest on those magical boots. Rodrigo De Paul’s presence and strength in midfield. De Paul is the midfielder with the most passes in this World Cup – 380. The 28-year-old, who also plays defensively, is Argentina’s weapon to tame the Netherlands, filling the a European-style field. Angel Di Maria, who has not improved his fitness, is likely to be out today.

The Dutch, who come to the World Cup after eight and a half years, have just one goal. The title was lost in the final three times. The style of play is to attack from all sides. There is Kod Gakpo as the central striker. The 23-year-old can prevent Argentina’s defense from sweating more. And Memphis Depay. Denzel Dumfries and Daly Blind will be a headache on the wings The Dutch have won four of their previous nine meetings. Argentina won only one.
