Retired NBA player-turned-TNT analyst Charles Barkley said the US men’s national team would be “opening up a can of whoop-ass” on The Netherlands and guaranteeing the Americans would pull off the upset on Saturday in the 2022 World Cup.

“We’re going for it all,” Barkley said. “I want Spain. I want Brazil. I want Germany. I want France. Oh, they got my boy [Kylian] Mbappe over there in France. He ain’t no joke, but we’re going to beat The Netherlands.”

“Lotta bark, no bite,” Netherlands forward Memphis Depay tweeted, with a photo of the final score above Barkley.
