England v Netherlands

Recommended Posts

Semi final of the 2024 European Football Championship.

Predictions? England thrashed? Somehow we find our form? Penalties? What do you think, Avsim Football experts?

One thing is certain, if we make the final, Spain will be formidable.

That will be tough, Ray. Netherlands are playing well.

Fingers crossed that we find our top form.

Can't stay silent as a Dutch man here. Of course the Netherlands will win, easily, we know it and you know it.

I predicted 2-0 to Spain last night. 😉 Whoever wins tonight they’ll do very well to beat a good Spain side.

While I'm more focused on the Copa América, I'm sure I'll be following this one up with a bag of popcorn 🍿

My vote is for the penalties.

I wonder what will feel worse: losing the semi-final or losing the final. Spain will annihilate us or the Brits anyway it seems.

Now it’s time to change into my orange shirt. Enjoy the game!

I'm just happy France is out of the way. And not because they beat us, we did play like #$("/%")?#/M).

Some players just don't know when to leave, causing more damage than helping. It's supposed to be a TEAM, right?

Oh well, GO SPAIN! 🤣

We played well for the first half of the first game and then it was like a switch was thrown and we were poor. Played okay against Switzerland though, but we will need to raise our standard of play higher to win tonight.

I'm predicting 1 - 1 after extra time and then England win on penalties.
