Nice afternoon in Memphis, now alone after Van Persie


He started only once in this World Cup in Qatar 2022, but this Saturday, in the round of 16 and against the United States, the good day finally came for Memphis Depay. The Barcelona player was, along with his teammate Denzel Dumfries, opponent in his own right with the passage of ‘Oranje’ to the quarterfinals (3-1), where they will face Argentina or Australia (who will face each other this Saturday).

Memphis: “I felt I could score”

Memphis scored the Netherlands’ first goal against the Americans, assisted by Dumfries and after great collective play by Louis van Gaal’s team. Depay ended a streak of 20 unbroken passes. The azulgrana, full of joy, also created some chances in what was ‘his’ game. “I knew he was going to score,” Memphis said afterward.

In the Dutch’s debut in this World Cup, with a 0-2 win against Senegal, Memphis came on in the 62′ to relieve Vincent Janssen. On the second day of the match, in a 1-1 draw against Ecuador, the Barcelona player replaced Steven Bergwijn after the break. And at the end of the group stage, against Qatar (a 2-0 victory for ‘oranje’), he started for the first time, but did not score.

Memphis Depay had to wait until the round of 16 to get his first goal in Qatar 2022 (after two in Brazil 2014), to show his best repertoire of the game. His method, his control. He withdrew from the field of play after 83′, replaced by former Barcelona squad, Xavi Simons.

Not just. It was the first for the Netherlands against the United States, andHe who opened the way for ‘oranje’ in the quarterfinals. But he also made Memphis the second solo top scorer for the Dutch team, with 43, after surpassing Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (42). The historic ‘pichichi’ of the Netherlands is Robin van Persie (with 50).
