Argentina vs Netherlands: important information

When does Argentina vs Netherlands kick off?

Argentina vs Netherlands kicks off at 2 pm ET/11 am PT/7 pm GMT, though many channels will be airing pre-game coverage from beforehand.

That makes it the second game of the day, after Brazil vs Croatia.

Where does Argentina vs Netherlands take place?

Argentina and Netherlands are playing at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Qatar.

If either of these teams makes it to the final, they'll return here. This 88,000-seater stadium is the biggest one being used in the tournament, and it's where the final takes place on December 18.

What you need to know about the match

Argentina and the Netherlands both won their groups in the first stage of the World Cup. Both got two wins, while Netherlands drew with Ecuador and Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia.

Argentina met Australia in the Round of 16, beating then 2-1, while Netherlands knocked out the USA in a 3-1 victory. So both are on fairly strong streaks so far.

These two teams last met in the 2014 World Cup, but they drew, a result that won't be accepted in this knockout stage of the game. If extended time doesn't work, penalties will be used to decide which of these teams can progress.

At the beginning of the tournament, Argentina had a big question mark over its head, as the team lost in its first ever match to Saudi Arabia. While its future in the tournament seemed dubious, it's proceeded to win every game since.

Little has been able to get in team Netherland's way since the beginning of the tournament, and it's quite a comeback after the a middling result in the Euros in 2021 and a failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. But it needs to continue its winning streak to get any further.
