England rose to the challenge when defeating Switzerland on penalties in the Euro 2024 quarter-finals and they may have a little too much nous for the Netherlands, who may fall short of reaching their first European Championship final since 1988.

Netherlands vs England predictions

England are the only semi-finalist at Euro 2024 to have never been crowned European champions, but they have become accustomed to competing at the business end of major tournaments and their experience of high-pressure games could be key to defeating the Netherlands in Dortmund.

Gareth Southgate has received plenty of criticism for the risk-averse nature of England's performances but he is preparing the Three Lions for their third major tournament semi-final in just six years.

In contrast, the Netherlands' best effort in that time has been a run to the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup.

The Dutch have not appeared in the World Cup semi-finals since 2014 and last reached the final four of a European Championship 20 years ago, when they were edged aside 2-1 by hosts Portugal.

Experience is never a guarantor of success but it does help in clutch moments such as England's penalty shootout win over Switzerland on Saturday, when there seemed to be clarity of mind and confidence behind every spot-kick they took.

England's performance against the Swiss received excessive praise, but it was undoubtedly an improvement on what had gone before and leaves Three Lions fans dreaming that a successful summer could still be on the cards.

However, the market reaction has been fairly subdued with England's title odds contracting only marginally from 7-2 to 11-4 since the start of the knockout rounds.

For the first time in the tournament there is a more realistic assessment of England's chances and it can be argued that, at a shade of odds-on, they are a value bet to get past the Netherlands on Wednesday.

The odds about a Dutch triumph at Euro 2024 have shrunk markedly from 12-1 to 5-1 following knockout victories over Romania and Turkey, but their quarter-final showing against the Turks was far from convincing.

Ronald Koeman's side were outplayed for large periods of the first half and were probably relieved to have reached half-time only one goal behind.

Then came a change of tactics and personnel with target man Wout Weghorst coming on for winger Steven Bergwijn, and the more direct approach paid dividends when Stefan de Vrij's headed goal changed the course of the game.

The Dutch edged in front only six minutes later when Cody Gakpo, their outstanding player of the tournament, forced Mert Muldur to put through his own net, and the Oranje held on despite a flurry of late chances for Turkey, who had look dangerous throughout.

Turkey's failure to get over the line was influenced by losses of concentration at the back and a lack of composure in offensive situations. However, the Dutch performance was full of rough edges, including the inability to stop Turkey's key men Hakan Calhanoglu and Arda Guler receiving the ball in dangerous areas.

There was a lack of dynamism and energy in midfield and that may prove costly against England, who may find it easier to get their creative match-winners, Phil Foden and Jude Bellingham, heavily involved.

Bellingham has had a strange tournament, producing moments of magic in the victories over Serbia and Slovakia but struggling to get involved for long periods in other games.

Phil Foden has probably been more involved in England's build-up play and has registered nine shots, the second-most of any Three Lions player.

That said, Foden's performances in Germany have been nowhere near the levels he frequently attained for Manchester City in the Premier League last season, when he contributed 19 goals and eight assists for the English champions.

Getting Bellingham and Foden to gel is a conundrum Southgate is still trying to solve.

However, the duo showed some more encouraging signs against the Swiss and either could produce a match-winning moment to take England through to the first major final on foreign soil.

Key stat
