Louis van Gaal will guide the Netherlands into the knockout stages of the World Cup for the second time in his career today as the Oranje bid for a place in the last eight against the United States. Van Gaal’s side as semi-finalists in 2014 may not always prove convincing, but boast one of the most experienced managers in the game.

After proving against England that they are no light touch, this will be another big step.
