ESPN Daily: USA vs. Netherlands preview
If you thought that US match against Iran on Tuesday was stressful…just wait for Saturday. After years of anticipation, geopolitical strife, and endless debates about ethical concerns, the USMNT has finally made it back to the knockout stage of the World Cup. USA’s first quarterfinal berth in 20 years hangs in the balance, with just the Netherlands standing in the way. Sam Borden sets the scene for the game from Qatar, and then our old friend Roger Bennett, who has been traveling across America enthusiastically watching the World Cup, tells us what he’s learned about this country and its growing love affair with soccer…and why we should hate the Dutch.
