The Oranje went ahead after a brilliant piece of buildup play.

Netherlands scored the World Cup’s first knock-out stage goal with a brilliant team effort against the USA.

The Oranje face their opponents in the round of 16 after qualifying as Group A’s leaders.

Only ten minutes into the game, Netherlands opened the scoring with a spectacular team effort. The buildup play started inside Oranje’s box and reached USA’s net after 11 passes.

Following a few exchanges in midfield, Denzel Dumfries provided a precise low cross for Memphis Depay from the right-hand side.

The Barcelona star then smashed the ball into the bottom left corner of the net with a volley to make it 1-0 for Netherlands.

USA have plenty of time to get back into the game, but Oranje’s perfect start to the game might tempt them to push for more goals.

If Louis van Gaal’s side secure a place in the quarter-finals, they will meet the winners of Argentina’s match against Australia.

The Albiceleste will take on their opponents later tonight.
