With tournament hosts Brazil exiting the World Cup in embarrassing fashion, all of the spotlight is now on Argentina's Lionel Messi to cement his legacy as the greatest player in the history of the game. But his Argentina side have to win two more games to lift the World Cup for the first time since 1986, and a stiff challenge stands in their way in the Netherlands, who look better than they did when they were finalists in 2010.
The Netherlands are sweating over the fitness of Nigel De Jong and Robin van Persie, arguably their most important player and biggest star, respectively. De Jong was expected to be out for the rest of the World Cup with a groin injury, but he's surprisingly in contention for this match. Van Persie has a stomach problem, and his availability won't be known until lineups are announced.
Sergio Aguero and Argentina are in a similar predicament. No one expected him back for this match, but he's apparently in contention to play. However, Angel Di Maria is definitely out, and Enzo Perez is expected to replace him in midfield for the Albiceleste.
