Former player of Ajax, Spartak and Armenian national team Aras Özbiliz commented on the Netherlands national team's advance to the quarterfinals of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Today the Netherlands didn't show a beautiful game, but they won and the most important thing for them is to win. The Netherlands have three matches left. If they win, they will be champions. But it will be difficult. My friend Daley Blind played very well today. He was criticized a lot before but today he played brilliantly.

"At the World Cup I expect a lot from the Spanish team, but they have shown poor performance in the last game. My favorite is Spain or the Netherlands. The Dutch may have their next match against Argentina, and the winner of that match will have a chance to win the tournament.
Surprises at the World Cup? It's South Korea and Japan," Ozbiliz told Telecom Asia Sport.
The Netherlands beat the United States 3-1 in the round of 16. In the quarterfinals, the team will play the winner of the pair Argentina vs. Australia.
