UEFA Euro 2024 Match Preview, Odds Lineup, Live Streaming, and Head to Head

The second semi-final of the UEFA Euro 2024 will see the Netherlands take on England at the Signal Iduna Park in Dortmund. The two nations have not produced a draw in their last four meetings with each other, thus promising an exciting prospect for the fans. The winner of the tie will face Spain in the Euro final in Berlin.

The Netherlands would feel that their third-placed finish in the group stages turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the Dutch benefited from a favorable draw in the knockout stages. Ronald Koeman’s side thrashed Romania in the round of 16 and were put to the test by the resilient Turkiye in the quarters. The 1988 Euro winners, however, came out on top with a late flurry to advance to the final four. England will be an interesting battle as the Dutch will feel they have a real chance of going to the coveted final.

As for England, fortune has been its biggest factor in the run to the semi-finals so far. The performances in no way guaranteed the success enjoyed by England but being on the relatively easier side of the draw saved the Three Lions of the more challenging nations. However, that equation is now out of the question as Gareth Southgate faces his first big test in Germany. Optimism is at an all-time high in England to see their heroes finally bring the cup home.

Netherlands vs England: Likely line-ups

Ronald Koeman could replace Steven Bergwijn with Donyell Malen in his starting line-up with the Dortmund man being far more effective than Bergwijn at the moment. Despite his impressive displays during the latter stages of the games, Wout Weghorst is expected to start as one of the substitutes to give his manager a real asset off the bench.

Luke Shaw is fit and available again for England and will contest the back spot with Kieran Trippier. Gareth Southgate’s biggest headache will be choosing between the returning Marc Guehi or Ezri Konsa, who put in a good performance against Switzerland. Rumor has it that Southgate will persist with his back-to-back experiment against the Netherlands as well.
