England team news

England have no suspensions for this game, with all their previous yellow cards now wiped.

Southgate has a fully fit squad to select from with Marc Guehi back from his suspension, and Luke Shaw is fit enough to start after playing his first Euro 2024 minutes in the quarter-final.

The Three Lions boss needs to decide whether he should stick with a back three or return to a four-man defence and whether to play Shaw over tournament regular Kieran Trippier.

Good afternoon and welcome to SunSport’s live blog of England vs Netherlands!

The Three Lions are looking to seal their spot in a second Euros final in a row TONIGHT when they take on the Netherlands.

Gareth Southgate‘s side are just one game away from taking centre stage in Berlin’s Olympiastadion – where they could face Spain.

La Roja booked their spot in the final after coming from behind to beat France 2-1 last night.

And today England head into the semi-finals after a 5-3 penalty shootout win over Switzerland on Saturday, having drawn 1-1.

After an uneasy start in Germany – with two group game draws and a narrow win – the Three Lions saved their place in the tournament with a 95th-minute Jude Bellingham overhead kick and a Harry Kane extra-time goal in the round of 16 clash against Slovakia.

And to avoid going out again, England came from behind in the quarter-final against the Swiss, with Bukayo Saka equalising after Breel Embolo’s opener.

England will now face the Netherlands for a place in Sunday’s showpiece.

The Dutch beat Turkey 2-1 in the quarter-final after Stefan de Vrij and a Mert Mulder own goal.

Ronald Koeman’s side did not have the best group campaign – where they finished third in their group – but have now found their feet in this tournament.
