SB Nation's 2014 World Cup Bracket'

The first game of Wednesday's World Cup action sees minnows Australia clash with the Netherlands (12 p.m. ET, ESPN). Louis van Gaal's Oranje are looking to build upon their stunning thrashing of Spain in their opening match, while Australia will probably be hoping to just keep the scoreline as low as possible.

Having said that, the Socceroos delivered a surprisingly good performance against Chile in their first match, eventually only losing 2-1, despite conceding twice in the opening quarter of an hour. Still, on current form the Netherlands are looking quite a bit scarier than Chile, and they know that a victory would send them well on their way to the knockout stages.

Despite the Netherlands' roaring success over Spain, something to look out for today is a potential tactical tweak from their coach van Gaal. He switched to a central defensive trio in their last victory with Daley Blind excelling as a wing-back and Arjen Robben causing all kinds of problems with his pace up top, though they'll likely be shifted back to more familiar roles in a 4-3-3. Australia should stick with their 4-2-3-1, where the aerial threat of striker Tim Cahill will no doubt prominently feature.

Live in the USA? There's more than one way to catch the game on the internet.
