Netherlands vs England: Euro 2024 prediction, kick-off time, team news, TV, live stream, h2h results, odds

England’s quest to win Euro 2024 faces its toughest test in a semi-final showdown with the Netherlands tonight.

The Three Lions have toiled through the tournament thus far, edging nervously through the group stage with two draws and a narrow win, before a 95th-minute Jude Bellingham overhead kick was required to avoid going out against Slovakia before again coming from behind to take Switzerland to penalties in the quarter-finals.


There have been signs of progress and the level of talent on the pitch is obvious but England fans will not fancy another 90 or 120 minutes of tightrope walking with a place in the final on the line.

However, the Dutch have not lit up the tournament either. Having finished third in their group after losing to Austria, they strolled past Romania in the last-16 but needed to come from behind to get the better of a spirited Turkey team on Saturday night.

Ronald Koeman’s team were not fancied to go all the way before the tournament yet are now in their first Euros semi-final for 20 years, as both they and England benefit from being on the ‘kinder’ side of the draw. The question is, who will take the final step to Berlin?

Netherlands vs England prediction

It is clear that England have more talent and experience in these games. Southgate himself talked that up after the win over Switzerland and it should count for a lot here.

While their defensive work has been stellar, they are simply not putting teams away up the other end and look vulnerable to counter-attacks when they finally do take risks.

But the Dutch are not without their issues, too. A bit slow and ponderous in defence, they’ve also lacked midfield control and a killer touch in attack. On the other hand, they can hurt you with crosses, quick interchanges on the ground and shots from distance.

Logically, you have to expect this to be a tight game that could well go the distance - and hope England’s know-how and quality pull them through.
