NETHERLANDS and Argentina are set to go at it for a World Cup semi-final spot in Qatar – and fans can expect fireworks this weekend.
Goals from Memphis Depay, Daley Blind and Denzel Dumfries helped the Dutch to secure a spot in the last-8 against USA.
And Argentina followed suit courtesy of a 2-1 win over Australia where Lionel Messi was the star of the show once again.
Messi, 35 is desperate to emulate footballing legend Diego Maradonna by guiding the Argentines to World Cup success.
Furthermore, that is the only major piece of silverware that Messi has competed for and never got his hands on.
However, Holland will be on a revenge mission for what happened when the sides met during the 2014 edition.
