Quarterfinal quest

That quarterfinal game (2 pm ET/11am ET) will be held at Lusail Stadium, also the site of the World Cup Final on Dec. 18.

Head coach Gregg Berhalter’s team went 1W-0L-2D in Group B, placing behind England.

The USMNT are No. 16 in the FIFA World Rankings and qualified as the third-place team in Concacaf.

Head coach Louis van Gaal’s team went 2W-0L-1D in Group A, placing ahead of Senegal.

The Dutch are No. 8 in the FIFA World Rankings and qualified as the Group G winners in UEFA's pathway.

Knockouts Rules

Unlike group-stage games, knockout round games go to a 30-minute overtime period (two 15-minute periods) if they end in a draw. If there’s still no winner, a best-of-five penalty shootout will be played. 

Yellow cards reset for the quarterfinals, preventing someone from missing the final with two yellows accumulated. But if a player receives two yellows between the group stage and Round of 16, they are suspended for the quarterfinals.
