England, the tournament favorites, have yet to produce a dominant performance but have managed to escape the knockout stages with narrow victories. The Netherlands, on the other hand, have looked impressive throughout the tournament and will be a tough test for England. How to watch Netherlands vs England The match will be televised on Fox Sport in the United States. It can also be streamed online via Netherlands team news Xavi Simons has been a key player for the Netherlands at EURO 2024, setting up two of Cody Gakpo’s three goals. Manchester City’s Nathan Ake has also been impressive, assisting Gakpo’s other goal. Denzel Dumfries has provided width and pace to the wings, while Tottenham defender Micky van de Ven has been a reliable late-game substitute. England team news Marc Guehi is expected to return to the starting lineup alongside John Stones after being suspended against Switzerland. Kobbie Mainoo has started the last two games alongside Declan Rice in midfield. The only other question mark is whether Kieran Trippier remains at left-back or if Southgate takes a gamble and selects Luke Shaw. Netherlands vs England prediction The Netherlands have been the more impressive team at EURO 2024, but England have a knack for winning close games. In the end, I predict that England will edge out the Netherlands 2-1 to reach the final.

England entered EURO 2024 as favourites and were set to reach the semi-finals, where they will face the Netherlands, who were under the radar before the tournament but have been one of the most consistent teams since the start.

The one constant for England has been a narrow escape from the knockout stages and constant criticism from around the world, as Gareth Southgate’s side are five games into EURO 2024 and have yet to produce a 90-minute performance to match their incredible quality and depth. Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane scored in the final minute of injury time and the first minute of extra time respectively to edge past Slovakia in the round of 16, before Bukayo Saka scored an 80th-minute equaliser to help England reach the penalty shootout and beat Switzerland in the quarter-finals.

On the one hand, the Netherlands have yet to play a giant in the knockout rounds, having beaten Romania and Turkey to reach the semi-finals. On the other hand, England haven’t done that either, and the Dutch have at least looked dominant and explosive at one point in this tournament. Cody Gakpo is tied with three other players in the race for the Golden Boot, but is the only one with three goals still playing. Team-mate Donyell Malen, alongside Bellingham and Kane for England, is just behind Gakpo with two goals.

Dutch national team news, focus

Xavi Simons, 21, set up two of Gakpo’s three goals and has three assists in total at EURO 2024. Manchester City’s Nathan Ake assisted Gakpo’s other at left-back, but it’s Denzel Dumfries at right-back who continues to provide the width (and pace) to the wings. Tottenham defender Micky van de Ven is a frequent late-game safety sub for Ronald Koeman’s side and made an incredible block to deny Turkey a stoppage-time equaliser in the quarter-finals.

Marc Guehi is expected to regain his starting place alongside John Stones after being suspended against Switzerland for accumulating yellow cards, although there is still some mystery over a three- or four-man defensive line. Kobbie Mainoo started for the second straight game alongside Declan Rice in midfield (Trent Alexander-Arnold started the first two games before Connor Gallagher got his chance in the group stage finale against Slovenia). From there, the only other question is whether Kieran Trippier remains at left-back or Southgate takes a gamble and selects Luke Shaw, who played 42 minutes on Saturday after being out injured since February.

Netherlands vs England prediction

In their worst and most desperate moments of this tournament, it was three of England’s brightest stars who rose to the occasion and saved the day. They will be lifted by it and it will be a back-to-back appearance in the European Champions’ final for the Three Lions. Netherlands 1-2 England.
