The tournament has already produced some shocking results, including Saudi Arabia’s win against Argentina and Japan’s upset over Germany.

The Oranje edged to a 2-0 success against the African champions in their first outing with late goals from in-form youngster Cody Gakpo and Davy Klaassen.

The Netherlands, three-time runners-up, are playing at the World Cup for the first time since finishing third under Van Gaal in 2014.
