The Netherlands and Argentina meet in Wednesday's World Cup semifinal (4 p.m. ET, ESPN), with a berth in the final against Germany on the line. All the pressure will be on Lionel Messi to perform for the Albiceleste, but he's going to have a tougher time than expected.
Nigel De Jong was believed to be out injured for this game, while Netherlands boss Louis Van Gaal claimed that Robin van Persie was in doubt because of a stomach issue. But both are apparently fit enough to play, and De Jong is a massive boost. The Netherlands don't have another true defensive midfielder, and he'll be instrumental in slowing down Messi.
Argentina are without Angel Di Maria, who is a massive loss, but they could potentially have Sergio Aguero available. Like De Jong, he was rumored to be out for the tournament, but he's recovered to the point where he is in contention to play this game.
