The United States have a big Round of 16 game coming up on Saturday: they’ll take on the Netherlands in their first World Cup knockout round game in almost a decade.

The Netherlands finished on top of Group A — and they’re a talented team. They have one of the world’s best defenders in Virgil Van Dijk and one of the world’s most promising young attackers in Cody Gakpo.

Soccer coach, analyst, and Backheeled.com contributor Kieran Doyle joined Joe Lowery on The Backheeled Show to talk about how the Dutch play and how the U.S. can beat them. You can listen to the episode down below or follow the show wherever you get your podcasts.

The Backheeled Show brings you unique coverage of the USMNT in just 10 minutes or less. We believe that just because soccer games are 90 minutes long, doesn’t mean that soccer podcasts have to be.
