Netherlands XI vs England: Starting lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest for Euro 2024 semi-final

The Netherlands have opted against bringing Wout Weghorst into the side to face England in the Euro 2024 semi-finals.

Weghorst made his case to lead the line after another impressive cameo off the bench as the Dutch beat Turkey.


Steven Bergwijn has disappointed when starting on the right flank for the past two games ahead of Jeremie Frimpong and Donyell Malen, who has had a mixed Euros marked by two late goals against Romania in the last-16. Malen comes into the side tonight.

Memphis Depay will continue through the middle, ahead of Xavi Simons and Cody Gakpo, who is hoping to continue his fine form off the left.

Joey Veerman began the tournament in the Netherlands XI but has since been ousted for AC Milan’s Tijjani Reijnders and Jerdy Schouten of PSV Eindhoven.

The Dutch have a settled defence with Virgil van Dijk and Stefan de Vrij preferred to Matthijs de Ligt and Micky van de Ven. The Tottenham defender has been used as a substitute left-back for Nathan Ake in all four of his appearances at the Euros.

Denzel Dumfries will offer pace and power overlapping from right-back and Brighton’s Bart Verbruggen continues in goal.

Netherlands XI: Verbruggen, Dumfries, De Vrij, Van Dijk, Ake, Schouten, Reijnders, Malen, Simons, Gakpo, Depay

Subs: Geertruida, De Ligt, Wijnaldum, Weghorst, Frimpong, Bijlow, Van de Ven, Veerman, Blind, Brobbey, Maatsen, Zirkzee, Flekken, Bergwijn, Gravenberch
