Lusail - A historic duel in the quarterfinals of the 2022 World Cup - that's how the football god wanted it.

Coaching legend Louis van Gaal wants to stop the determined superstar Lionel Messi on his way to his first world title.

There is no real favorite between the Netherlands and Argentina.

Both teams needed time to get up to speed in Qatar.

The Albiceleste started with an embarrassment against Saudi Arabia, Oranje convinced in the first two group games against Senegal (2-0) and against Ecuador (1-1) at best on results.

World Cup quarter-finals: Netherlands have “settlements to settle” against Argentina

"We have scores to settle," announced Bonds coach van Gaal before the game at the Lusail Iconic Stadium.

The bill dates back almost eight and a half years.

In the fifth World Cup duel between the two nations, Argentina prevailed in the semifinals in 2014, but then lost to Germany in the final in Rio.

In 1978 Argentina won the final on home soil against the Dutch after extra time. 

Lionel Messi showed respect: "A great team, with great players and a great coach," the seven-time world footballer praised the Dutch: "It will be very difficult." The exceptional footballer carries an entire nation on his narrow shoulders, the pressure is immense .

And he delivers: His three goals were decisive for entering the quarter-finals of the World Cup.

Louis van Gaal grinned, flirted with age and looks and, before the quarter-final smash against Argentina, even left an option open in the event of an early World Cup exit.

"If a really interesting offer comes along, I could continue as a coach.

I'm 71 years young, I'm still good looking and incredibly young."
