It’s business time at the World Cup as international football giants are set to collide in the quarter finals.
One of the most anticipated ties of the round takes place this evening as Louis Van Gaal’s in-form Netherlands side look to halt the resurgence of Lionel Messi and Argentina.
Livescore took a look at the approach of Van Gaal and how he has provided a diverse range of opinions on the side – with Danny Blind also having a key influence on the team.
Blind’s aggressiveness from his playing days have transcended to his managerial career, as he has enhanced the forcefulness of a young Dutch side.
Livescore also pinpointed Andries Noppert as one of the shining lights of the tournament, as the Herenveen shot-stopper has held down the number one position for Van Gaal’s side.
After a shaky start, Argentina have looked strong defeating Mexico, Poland and Australia, however, this evening’s tie will provide them with their toughest test as Messi and co look to reach the summit of international football.
