DOHA -- Memphis Depay, Daley Blind and Denzel Dumfries all scored as the Netherlands qualified for the quarterfinals of the World Cup with a 3-1 win over the US on Saturday evening.

Depay scored the first goal in the 10th minute with a sweet first-time finish after running onto a pass from the overlapping Dumfries as the Netherlands found space behind the US defense.

Blind added the second on the stroke of halftime, with another sweet finish after running onto another intelligent ball from man of the match Dumfries.

Haji Wright pulled a goal back for the US with a flick that looped into the corner of the Netherlands' net in the 76th minute.

The US were pressing for an equalizer, but Dumfries sealed the win for the Dutch when he volleyed home Blind's pinpoint cross at the far post.
