The Netherlands national football team will go head-to-head in their semi-finals of the Euro 2024 campaign when they take on the England national football team at the Signal Iduna Park. The Three Lions are expected to book their spot in the finals despite an unconvincing start to the summer tournament.

Oranje will aim for a positive outcome on Wednesday against a side who have produced several lackluster performances in this tournament. Cody Gakpo who picked up two MOTM performances is now in the running for the Golden Boot this summer. For the first time in 20 years, the Netherlands booked their place in the semi-finals.

As for England, they are coming off a penalty shootout victory over stubborn Switzerland to book their spot in the semi-finals for the third time in the competition’s history. England’s performance has caused an uproar among the fans, with much of the discontent directed towards the manager.

Key Players to Watch in Netherlands vs England

Jude Bellingham (England)

The Real Madrid attacker scored a stoppage-time equalizer in The Three Lions’ round-of-16 game against Slovakia and has been the nation’s best player in this tournament. Jude Bellingham was instrumental in leading Real Madrid to the La Liga and Champions League trophies. Last season, the Englishman scored 23 goals for Los Blancos across all competitions. Bellingham is one of the standout performers of Euro 2024, despite England’s flat start to the summer competition.

Cody Gakpo (Netherlands)

The Liverpool forward is currently in the running for Golden Boot in the Euros with three goals to his name. Gakpo has been in sensational form for the Netherlands as the attacker won two MOTMs in this tournament. Playing in his preferred left-wing role at the Euros, Gakpo makes a bonafide case for the Golden Boot award this season.

Netherlands vs England Prediction

The Netherlands national football team are coming off a 2-1 win over Türkiye in the quarter-final clash of the Euro 2024 campaign. Oranje had an impressive run to the quarter-finals despite struggling in the group stages. They have bounced back in the knockout stages and have been one of the best performers in this tournament.

On the other hand, The English national football team are coming off a win over Switzerland via penalties in the quarter-final clash of the Euro 2024 campaign. The Three Lions are yet to produce a convincing performance in this tournament. Their journey to the knockout rounds was anything but smooth and have been one of the biggest underperformers in this tournament. They will struggle to get past Ronald Koeman’s men who have been phenomenal in this summer tournament.

Predicted Score: Netherlands 1-0 England
