For the second time in five years, these two European heavyweights meet in a semi-final. The Netherlands triumphed 3-1 after extra time in a Nations League clash in 2019. Given their history, it wouldn't be surprising if this highly-anticipated encounter went the distance again; five of the last eight games between these teams have ended level after 90 minutes.

"It will be a great night on Wednesday between two big nations – a historic night," predicted Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman after his side reached their first EURO semi-final since 2004 by defeating Türkiye. England, on the other hand, have made it to this stage for the second consecutive tournament. "If we continue to show spirit and togetherness, I'm sure we can go to the very end and win it all," insisted defender Ezri Konsa after the quarter-final penalty shoot-out win over Switzerland. This tie is balanced on a knife edge.

Netherlands: Malen, Depay, Gapko
England: Bellingham, Foden; Kane
