England: Narrow Wins and Mounting Pressure

Despite reaching the semi-finals, England’s journey has been far from convincing. Narrow victories and a lack of dominant performances have attracted criticism, with questions lingering about their ability to produce a complete display worthy of their talent. Their previous knockout stage wins hinged on late heroics – Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane scoring crucial goals in the dying moments against Slovakia and Switzerland, respectively.

Netherlands: Under the Radar to Top Contender

The Netherlands, on the other hand, have flown under the radar throughout the tournament but have emerged as a formidable force. Their victories over Romania and Turkey didn’t pit them against the biggest names, but they’ve displayed moments of dominance and explosive attacking potential. Cody Gakpo leads the Golden Boot race with three goals, while teammate Donyell Malen sits just behind alongside England’s attacking duo of Bellingham and Kane.

With both teams hungry for glory and weaknesses to exploit, this semi-final promises to be a thrilling encounter. England’s experience and resilience versus the Netherlands’ resurgent form will make for a captivating clash.
