Euro 2024 semifinal live updates: Simons’ early strike puts Netherlands ahead

Can you believe it? After being thrilled and awed by Spain and France on Tuesday, now we get the second Euro 2024 semifinal as the Netherlands take on England in Dortmund, Germany.

The Dutch have managed their way through the Euros with skill and timely moments of brilliance from unlikely players — Liverpool forward Cody Gakpo is tied for the tournament’s Golden Boot, with three — while England have gritted out results to keep advancing, still not quite living up to the talent in the squad. Gareth Southgate’s side needed to come from behind against Slovakia in the last 16 — remember Jude Bellingham‘s bicycle kick in injury time? — before advancing in extra time, they also came from behind to draw with Switzerland in the quarterfinal, only to win on penalties with five perfect spot-kicks.

What will this game hold? Join us for all the action beginning 2:30 p.m. ET, as we see which team moves on to Sunday’s final.
