Netherlands vs Argentina: Starting Lineups, TV Times And World Cup Open Thread

Following last night’s catastrophic display by Brazil, Argentina are the only South American representative remaining in the tournament. They will want to maintain that status after today’s game against the Netherlands.

Where to watch –

The game kicks off at 4 PM EST/1 PM PST, and this is where viewers in USA can catch the game –

English language: ESPN and WatchESPN
Spanish language: Univision, Univision Deportes Network and Univision online
Portuguese language: ESPN Deportes

Referee –

Cuneyt Cakir (Turkey)

Starting lineups – 

Holland starting XI: Cillessen, Kuyt, Blind, Vlaar, De Vrij, Martins Indi, De Jong, Wijnaldum, Sneijder, Robben, Van Persie

Argentina starting XI: Romero, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Garay, Rojo, Enzo Pérez, Biglia, Mascherano, Lavezzi, Messi, Higuaín

Netherlands –

After watching their European counterparts Germany demolish hosts Brazil 7-1 last night, Netherlands would want to replicate that suffering on Argentina and set up an all European final on Saturday.

A masterclass substitution from Louis van Gaal in the last round to bring on Tim Krul was vindicated by his heroics in the penalty shootout victory against Costa Rica. However, the incoming Manchester United manager could possibly be without his captain Robin van Persie, who is having some stomach pains and faces a late fitness test.

Argentina –

They knocked out dark horses Belgium last time around by a solitary Gonzalo Higuain strike. There’s welcome news for them in the form of the return of Sergio Aguero, who is fit again and is expected to start alongside Lionel Messi again after his injury lay-off.
