Team News

Netherlands

After the Netherlands' loss to Austria in the last group-stage game, many thought their run would be over soon but Ronald Koeman's side made a strong comeback and they will now play in the semi-final of the competition.

Gakpo has been more than influential with Xavi Simons creating a lot of chances. Memphis Depay hasn't been good but the Dutches don't have many options in the bench. Wout Weghorst will most likely come off the bench in the second half.

Schouten and Reijnders will take care of the midfield with Donyell Malen also set to start in front of them. Stefan de Vrij scored a brilliant goal in the last game and also dropped a solid performance with his defending. Virgil van Dijk has failed to give his best at the tournament but he is a leader and will have to be at his best against the English attackers. Verbruggen has been sensational at the goal and he is going to play a key role on Thursday.

England

England have been very poor in front of goal. They will need to put their best foot forward against the Netherlands if they want to progress further. Harry Kane needs to step up. He hasn't played at his best so far. Bukayo Saka was exceptional in the last game and he would like to carry forward that performance too. Phil Foden plays very well in the middle so Southgate might be thinking of giving him more of a free role.

Jude Bellingham is very inconsistent too with his performances. He has scored goals but has failed to build chemistry with the team. Kobbie Mainoo is a generational talent and has proved why he is worthy of that title. His passing and the game sense are second to none. Declan Rice always performs better when he gets the opportunity to move forward. He has been one of the best players for England in the Euro 2024.

Kyle Walker will start as a wingback with Kieran Trippier on the other end. Southgate might bring Luke Shaw in the second half like he did in the match against Switzerland. John Stones and Marc Guehi are set to start at the back. Ezri Konsa did drop a solid performance in the last game but Guehi was brilliant too when he was starting before the suspension.

Possible XIs

Netherlands' possible starting lineup:

Bart Verbruggen; Nathan Aké, Virgil van Dijk, Stefan de Vrij, Denzel Dumfries; Tijjani Reijnders, Jerdy Schouten, Cody Gakpo; Xavi Simons, Donyell Malen, Memphis Depay

England's possible starting lineup: 

Jordan Pickford; Kyle Walker, Marc Guehi, John Stones; Kieran Trippier, Jude Bellingham, Kobbie Mainoo, Declan Rice; Phil Foden, Bukayo Saka; Harry Kane
