Netherlands vs England, Thursday’s semi-final match for the UEFA Nations League Final Stage in Guimarães, Portugal.
The Netherlands and England will measure their strength at the Dom Afonso Henriques Stadium in a meeting for this UEFA Nations League semi-final.
The Netherlands, for its part, wants to end its own 30-year period without winning an international competition with a group of extremely talented young people.
It is especially important to them after the failure to qualify for the last two major international tournaments, the Netherlands has dramatically improved since the failure to qualify for Russia in 2018.
The home team arrives at this stage of the UEFA finished the group stage in the 1st position of Group 1, with 7 points won. In the last 9 home games the Netherlands recorded 7 wins and 2 losses. Their attack has scored regularly, as has scored at least one goal in each of the last 4 games for this competition.
The England World Cup run under Gareth Southgate drove the nation to a standstill last summer, just like the Netherlands, they also have a wealth of talent at their disposal.
England have not slowed down since the World Cup, have won six of their eight matches since then and lost only once, scoring an impressive 20 goals.
The visiting team arrives at this UEFA Nations League phase after having finished the group stage in the 1st position of Group 4 with 7 points earned.
In the last 10 games as a visitor England won 7, drawn 1 and lost 2. The team conceded goals in 3 of the last 4 games, so it has not presented great defensive solidity, but its attack has regularly scored in 3 of the last 4 games for this competition
Bet: I think this Netherlands has the possibility of beating England.
