The USA's 2022 World Cup journey ended at the round of 16 stage after losing 3-1 to the Netherlands. 

The Americans finished two points behind Group B winners England to reach the last 16 for the fifth time since 1994, but their adventure was stopped by an impressive Dutch side.

Christian Pulisic had an early chance to put the USA ahead but was denied by Dutch goalkeeper Andries Noppert. Louis Van Gaal's team then responded in style with Memphis Depay and Daley Blind scored before the break.

Haji Wright's freak deflection on 76 minutes gave the Americans hope but that was swiftly dashed five minutes later when Denzel Dumfries volleyed in a third Dutch goal.

Who are the star names?

Christian Pulisic is the standout name in this USA side. He captains the team, which is where he gets the nickname ‘Captain America’, and was his side’s leading scorer during qualifying.

While he may have struggled at Chelsea recently, Pulisic is still the man that fans and team-mates look to make a difference for the USA. His national team would like Graham Potter, the Chelsea manager, to give him a little more game time.

Behind him there is a group of promising young players who play for some of Europe’s biggest teams, such as AC Milan full-back Sergino Dest, Juventus' Weston McKennie, and Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Giovanni Reyna.

Premier League fans will be familiar with Brenden Aaronson and Tyler Adams, who are both mainstays of the Leeds squad. Should Pulisic struggle for form, Adams is a ready-made back-up.
