‘Lotta bark, no bite’: Holland goalscorer Memphis Depay mocks Charles Barkley after bullish Hall of Famer said the Dutch are ‘in trouble’ before Gregg Berhalter’s men lose World Cup last-16 tie
Holland forward Memphis Depay took to Twitter to mock Charles Barkley Saturday night after his team’s 3-1 win over the USA.
Barkley was bullish on the prospects of a USA upset earlier this week, saying on Gregg Berhalter’s side would be ‘opening a can of whoop a**’ on their opponent and saying the Oranje were ‘in trouble.’
The Hall of Famer’s prediction did not come to fruition however, as the USA were outclassed Holland as they conceded near-identical goals to Depay and Daley Blind in the first half.
And Depay wasted little time poking fun at Barkley, as he posted a photo of the NBA analyst looking upset with the game’s score line above him.
‘Lotta bark, no bite,’ he captioned the image, which had nearly 60,000 likes at publishing.
Holland will face Argentina in the quarterfinals after the beat Australia 2-1 later in the day.
