England vs.  Netherlands odds, line-up prediction, live stream, choices: where to watch Euro 2024 online, TV

The UEFA Euro 2024 The semi-finals will be complete after England and the Netherlands meet in Dortmund on Wednesday to determine who will face Spain in the final, with the Dutch now the remaining underdogs this edition. The Three Lions have been disappointing but continue to battle their way to the final and are very similar to France in approach. The Dutch defeated the brave Turkiye while the English defeated Switzerland in their respective quarter-finals.

Gareth Southgate’s men are still looking for a truly convincing win and will be hoping to achieve just that in the semi-finals. Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane scored big in the round of 16 win over Slovakia, but it was Bukayo Saka who was the hero against the Swiss with a stunning strike. Still, penalties were needed to beat the Nati and secure a place in the last four, where they would face Ronald Koeman’s Netherlands.

The Dutch team defeated Romania in the round of 16 and Turkiye in the quarter-finals, so we can say that they have yet to meet a real continental giant. Cody Gakpo has been excellent in attack and leads the top scorers by three goals ahead of Donyell Malen, Bellingham and Kane, who will be hoping to be among the goals as it has been hot and cold in Germany so far.

Here are our storylines, how to watch the match and more:

How they got here

The Netherlands surprisingly finished third in Group D behind Austria in first place and France in second, but ahead of Poland, leaving the Netherlands in an unexpected underdog role here after a favorable run to the last four against Romania and then Turkiye. England topped Group C but won just one of their three matches, finishing ahead of Denmark, Slovenia and Serbia before having to work hard against Slovakia and then Switzerland to now face the Dutch in perhaps their biggest test yet in terms of status.

Team news

The Netherlands: Xavi Simons and Cody Gakpo have impressed so far with the Paris Saint-Germain man providing three assists and the Liverpool star scoring three goals, two of which have been provided by Simons. Nathan Aké and Denzel Dumfries should remain on either side of the defense, although Micky van den Ven is pushing for their inclusion after some important late interventions against the Turks.

Possible Netherlands XI: Bridge; Dumfries, De Vrij, Van Dijk, Aké; Schouten, Simons, Reijnders; Bergwijn, Depay, Gakpo.

England: Marc Guehi could be reinstated alongside John Stones after suspension, although Ezri Konsa would be unlucky if that happens. Kobbie Mainoo looks to be finding a home for himself in midfield, alongside Declan Rice, after Trent Alexander-Arnold and Connor Gallagher. Luke Shaw could now be an option in place of Kieran Trippier after being used against Switzerland, although another caemo could be most likely.

Possible England XI: Pickford; Walker, Stones, Guehi, Trippier; Mainoo, Rice, Saka; Bellingham, Foden; Kane.

Prediction

Although England have not been at their best, the Netherlands have not faced top opponents since the loss to Austria and also went goalless against France. The Three Lions should do just enough to roar on, but only after 120 minutes. Choose: Netherlands 1, England 2 (England win after extra time).
