Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal admitted that he had not paid the U.S. team much attention prior to the World Cup, but he noted that had seen the USA-Wales match and acknowledged how well the USMNT has played in the tournament.

USA has demonstrated that it has an excellent team, said Van Gaal, speaking in Dutch and translated through a FIFA interpreter. I would even say one of the best teams, a team that is fine-tuned, and its going to be a very tough match. But its nothing we cant overcome. I mean, we also have a good team. Well have to wait and see in this match which of the two squads is the best.
