Argentina and Netherlands are set to face off the second of the World Cup 2014 semifinals on 9th July Wednesday. Both of the teams just one win away from the World Cup finals. This game will be played in Arena Corinthians, São Paulo kicking off at 22.00. The Netherlands came in to the semifinals after a dramatic penalty shootout win over Costa Rica. Their performance so impressed this World Cup. With a 100% win record they topped their group ahead of Chile, Spain and Australia. Especially the group match of the Dutch against Spain was a real remarkable one where Louis van Gaal’s spot-on tactics engineered demolishes defending champions, Spain by 5-1. Seemingly all decisions of the Dutch manager is right and everything has turned to gold for his team. They dramatically comeback win over Mexico and thus survived the Last 16 rounds by the skin of their teeth. Now Van Gaal’s next test will be to defend the threat main of Argentina, Lionel Messi. In their quarterfinal Argentina won over Belgium by 1-0. But unfortunately Alejandro Sabella will find some difficulties to make strategy in order to take his team towards finals. Because the team’s best player next to Lionel Messi, Angel Di Maria suffered a thigh injury and may seat on the bench against the Netherlands.

For the Netherlands:
Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben remained threat for the opponents but also haven’t scored in the last few games. They will hopefully break down the Argentinian defense.
Di Maria’s absence would add little more pressure as well as responsibility on the team’s magician, Messi. Hopefully, Messi will take them to the finals. His performance is vital for Argentina.
Both teams played 6 matches and in 2006 world cup’s group stage match they played out a 0-0 draw. Argentina won just once over Dutch team and lost 3 matches.
