Argentina leads Netherlands 2-2 (NED 3-4 ARG pens) at FULL TIME. Lionel Messi’s quest for a first World Cup continues as the GOAT stepped up, scored two significant penalties, and guided his team to the semi-final of one of the greatest knockout stage matches in World Cup history. The Dutch gave everything they had today, but their time in Qatar has come to an end for Frenkie De Jong and Memphis Depay. What a fantastic game.
Argentina and the Netherlands will square off in a massive matchup at the Lusail Stadium in Al Daayen in a rematch of their memorable 2014 semifinal encounter in Brazil, which the Albiceleste ultimately prevailed in on penalties following 120 exhilarating minutes of play.
It will be strange to see Frenkie De Jong and Lionel Messi competing against one another. Memphis Depay will also play for the Blaugrana and attempt to break the hearts of Culers who want to see Messi win his first World Cup.
