The Netherlands rode their luck in their quarter-final match against Turkiye. After going a goal behind in the first half, a second-half comeback, with two goals in six minutes, was enough to book their spot in the final four. While the Dutch side finished third in Group D, in the knockout stages they’ve been more impressive dispatching Romania 0-3 in the Round of 16, and they will feel confident ahead of this match against England in Dortmund’s iconic stadium. 

England’s journey to the Euro 2024 semi-final has been a mixed bag. The Three Lions may be undefeated in five games but have yet to look convincing across a full 90 minutes. Knockout wins against Slovakia and Switzerland felt somewhat fortunate, and there’s a growing sense that England’s luck could run out against a strong Netherlands team. If England are to make their second Euros final in just three years (they lost to Italy on pens in the previous Euros final), they need to improve now. 

As for their respective Euros records, the Netherlands lifted the European Championship trophy in 1988 after defeating the Soviet Union team, but since then have yet to reach another Euros final. Meanwhile, England have never been crowned European champions but did reach the final of Euro 2020, only to lose in heart-breaking fashion on penalties to Italy. Back-to-back finals would be impressive.   

It’s hard to call a firm favorite in the Netherlands vs England live stream, as both teams have the quality to score multiple goals but have also shown defensive vulnerabilities during this tournament. This could be a very close contest, and might just be settled in extra time or on penalties. Here’s how to watch the game online.
