World Cup 2022: Leverkusen clash in last eight

The World Cup journey continues for Werkself players Exequiel Palacios and Jeremie Frimpong: Both Argentina and the Netherlands have progressed from the Round of 16. The two Leverkusen players are now on opposite sides for the quarter-final on Friday 9 December (kick-off: 20.00 CET).

The Netherlands with Jeremie Frimpong faced the USA in the Round of 16 with goals from Memphis Depay (10’) and Daley Blind (45+1’) giving them a two-goal lead at half-time. The USA reduced the deficit on 76 minutes with a strike from Haji Wright but the Oranje’s Denzel Dumfries sealed the win at 3-1 five minutes later.

Frimpong did not feature in the game against the USA and he is still waiting for his first World Cup appearance.

Australia pegged Argentina back on 77 minutes with an own goal by Enzo Fernández but were unable to draw level.

Exequiel Palacios came off the bench on 80 minutes and he helped to secure the win in this knockout tie.
