Netherlands were eliminated from the 2022 World Cup after a 4-3 loss on penalties to Argentina in the quarter-finals.
Argentina had previously been 2-0 up against the Dutch before two Wout Weghorst goals pushed the game into extra time.
There were no further goals in the following 30 minutes, but the Argentines succeeded after the Dutch missed two penalties in the shootout.
What are they saying?
Winger Denzel Dumfries said recent criticism had helped fire him up for a match-winning performance in the Netherlands' World Cup last 16 victory over the United States on Saturday.
The Inter Milan player produced a virtuoso display as he set up first-half goals for Memphis Depay and Daley Blind and then scored himself late on to kill off an American fightback.
Despite qualifying for the knockout stage by comfortably winning Group A, Louis van Gaal's side had not exactly set the tournament on fire with their forward line under the spotlight.
"The aim of the match was to win and I'm happy I was able to help the team," said Dumfries, whose parents named him after American actor Denzel Washington.
"I was pleased for Daley [Blind] too. If I'm honest we've had some criticism recently. And I think it's a good boost for both of us that we were important tonight for the group."

What is Netherlands’ World Cup record?
Rivalled only by Croatia for punching well above the weight of their size, Netherlands are a contender for the best national side never to have won a World Cup.
Three times they have finished runners-up, twice during the 1970s (1974 and 1978) during the Rinus Michels/Johan Cruyff-inspired ‘Total Football’ era, and again in 2010 when they lost 1-0 to Spain in one of the filthiest football matches of modern times.
Despite missing out on the 2018 tournament, their recent record is impressive: Van Gaal took them to third place in 2014 before decamping to Manchester United.
A relatively routine run through qualifying will have also bolstered their confidence and with a group that should be fairly easy to negotiate, the Oranje are definitely a team to look out for in Qatar.
