Final: Argentina advance to World Cup Final on PKs

With a spot in the World Cup final on the line, the Netherlands and Argentina are set to meet for the right to face Germany on Sunday. Here's how the two teams will line up at the opening whistle.

For the Dutch, Louis van Gaal has brought back Nigel de Jong into the lineup after the midfielder made a quicker than expected recovery. Memphis Depay drops to the bench as the Ditch switch back to a 5-3-2 formation with Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben leading the attack.

Alejandro Sabela has made two changes to the lineup that defeated Belgium in the quarterfinals. In the defense, fullback Marcos Rojo returns from suspending, sending José Basanta back to the bench. With Ángel di Maria injured and unavailable, Sabella has decided to start Enzo Pérez in the midfield.

Argentina starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Sergio Romero; Marcos Rojo, Ezequiel Garay, Martín Demichelis, Pablo Zabaleta; Javier Mascherano, Lucas Biglia; Enzo Pérez, Lionel Messi, Ezequiel Lavezzi; Gonzalo Higuaín.

Netherlands starting lineup (5-3-2): Japser Cillessen; Daley Blind, Ron Vlaar, Stefan De Vrij, Bruno Martins Indi, Dirk Kuyt; Giorginio Wijnaldum, Nigel de Jong, Wesley Sneijder; Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben.
