Denzel Dumfries deserves to be named a field star in this game. The Inter Milan player scored one goal and made two assists. He was also able to keep De Oranje's side of the defense extraordinary.

America actually played quite well. The Yanks had a golden opportunity in the 3rd minute through Christian Pulisic's feet. Exempting from the offside trap, the Chelsea player was just dealing with the Dutch goalkeeper, Andries Noppert.

However, Pulisic's flick of the ball has not resulted in the first goal. Noppert was still quick to block the ball with his feet.

The opener was scored by the Netherlands in the 10th minute. Starting from a pass from Dumfries, the ball was then executed perfectly by Memphis Depay.

Eight minutes later, kickoff Gakpo opened up the opportunity for Daley Blind. He stabbed into the American defense and then gave the ball for Blind to finish.

Unfortunately, the shot of the senior player who had defended Manchester United did not meet the target, aka soaring far from the goal.

America, who was left behind, tried to get up. Gregg Berhalter's team then took the lead in possession and raised threats several times.

However, the Dutch defense appeared so disciplined. Several chances of The Yanks raw.

As for America, their goal conceded again. The second Dutch goal came from Blind's feet before halftime. The score 2-0 for De Oranje closed the first half.

In the 75th minute, Depay almost made a blunder. The ball he wanted to give to the Dutch defender actually fell to Haji Wright.

Luckily for Depay and the Netherlands, the ball released by the American substitute was still blocked.

One minute later, Wright actually listed his name on the scoreboard. Starting from Serginho Dest's pass to Pulisic, the ball was then forwarded to the front of the Dutch goal.

Despite being closely guarded, Wright was still able to cheat the ball into the Noppert goal. The score changed 2-1.

Unfortunately, the position did not last long. The Dutch took the lead again by a difference of two goals in the 81st minute thanks to Dumfries' left foot flick which received a pass from Blind.
