With only two major trophies between them, Netherlands vs England clash in the UEFA Euros 2024 semi-final at Westfalenstadion today, Wednesday, July 10, means the world to both nations, and we'll help you find a way to watch the game.

There'll be top quality all over the park at Dortmund, but one area of particular concern for England fans is their left flank. Phil Foden and Kieran Trippier have both struggled over the course of tournament, and they've not faced anything like the Netherlands' rampaging right-back Denzel Dumfries. Both teams have only made the one change, Marc Guehi coming in for Ezri Konsa, and Donyell Malen replacing Steven Bergwijn.

Footie fans in the UK or New Zealand can watch all the Euros, including Netherlands vs England, for FREE on iPlayer in the former and TVNZ in the latter. Don't worry if you're abroad when the games are taking place, because you can watch Euro 2024 live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

These are long-suffering football heavyweights, for whom success has never come easy. The Oranje's sole title came in this competition in 1988, while the Three Lions have forever been in thrall to the class of 1966. Just by way of reaching the last four both sets of fans are already in raptures, but for one of the teams that familiar sense of crushing disappointment lurks just around the corner.

With three goals to his name, Cody Gakpo is one of the leading contenders for the Golden Boot, but in atypical fashion it's the Dutch rearguard and Wout Weghorst that have really propelled the team through the competition. England have embraced a safety-first policy too, partly because their superstar forwards have so far failed to gel, but from Jude Bellingham's overhead kick to Bukayo Saka's ping off the inside-post, Gareth Southgate's men have developed a happy knack for making decisive contributions at key moments. 

The air is charged with electricity but also fear — here's how to watch the Netherlands vs England UEFA Euros match online or on TV.
