If you're hoping for a goal fest, the Spain vs Netherlands live stream could well deliver, with both Women’s World Cup quarter-finalists partial to a front-foot approach that frequently leaves them wide open at the back. Read on and we'll show you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN, and potentially for FREE.
The thrashing by Japan made an easy punchline out of Spain, but they provided an emphatic reminder of their class by hammering Switzerland last Saturday. Aitana Bonmati, the tournament’s standout player, again used that trademark swivel and strike to devastating effect, while penalty box predators Jenni Hermoso and Alba Redondo feasted on all that came their way, be it cross, loose ball, or knockdown.
La Roja has just one weakness, though it's a fairly crucial one: defending. Despite enjoying a 75% share of possession across their games and facing just eight shots on target, they've conceded five goals. Their backline's habit of parting like the Red Sea hasn't helped matters, but Jorge Vilda is clearly not convinced by first-choice goalkeeper Misa Rodriguez either, who he dropped for debutant Cata Coll last time out.
Jill Roord has been a revelation for the Netherlands, who entered the tournament without an obvious goal threat due to the injury to Vivianne Miedema. With Katja Snoeijs and Lineth Beerensteyn both looking unconvincing up front and Lieke Martens more of an accomplice than a torchbearer, the Oranje have needed contributions from elsewhere and Roord has pitched in with four of them.
The temptation to play Esmee Brugts higher up the pitch must be at the back of Andries Jonker's mind after her screamers against Vietnam, especially considering Spain's defensive issues.
With a place in the last four on the line, today's Spain vs Netherlands live stream is not to be missed. We’ll show you how to watch this Women's World Cup 2023 quarter-final online from anywhere just below.
How to watch Spain vs Netherlands anywhere
Spain vs Netherlands live streams will be shown on many different channels across the world, but what if you're not in your home country and want to watch it on your usual service?
The answer is to use a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN will let you tune into your home coverage from wherever you are—meaning that if you're abroad, you can use one of the best VPN services to watch the games live as if you were in your lounge.
Our go-to for this match is ExpressVPN, thanks to its combination of superb speed, and reliable stream unblocking. It also offers a no-questions-asked 30-day money-back guarantee, so you can put it to the test without having to commit long-term.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app: for instance, if you're in the U.S. and want to view a U.K. service, you'd select the U.K. from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action: head to ITVX or another service and watch the game.
