THE 2022 WORLD CUP QUARTERFINALS ARE HERE!!! The eight nations still alive after a thrilling Round of 16 in Qatar are battling for a place in the Final Four of the world’s greatest sporting tournament, and the Barcelona matchup fans are most looking forward to is here.

The Lusail Stadium in Al Daayen is the site of a massive clash between the Netherlands and Argentina in a repeat of their unforgettable 2014 semi-final in Brazil, which saw the albiceleste won on penalties after 120 thrilling minutes of action.

It wouldn’t be a surprise to see the same script played out again as these two teams feel very even on this one. The Dutch passed the United States in their best performance of the tournament to date, and Argentina made their Round of 16 clash against Australia a lot harder than it needed to be, proving they are vulnerable despite being one of the heavy favourites.
