The Netherlands take on the United States in the first of the eight round-of-16 matches.

This is the nations’ first competitive international, though they have met five times previously in friendlies, the Netherlands winning the first four and the United States winning the most recent, 4-3 in Amsterdam in June 2015.

Group C winners Argentina and Group D runners-up Australia meet for the first time at a World Cup, both teams having recovered from opening defeats in Qatar with successive victories.

Argentina have won five of the teams’ previous encounters (D1 L1), including a 4-2 victory at the FIFA Confederations Cup 2005.
