We are only hours away from finding out whether or not England can overcome the Netherlands to reach a second European final in a row. In the meantime, let’s take a look at how the two teams compare in FC 24’s Euro 2024 mode.


Before we get started with the stats, check out the video above to see what happened when we played the game on FC 24 this morning!

Gareth Southgate’s England have had a slow start to the tournament, winning just one of their group stage games and drawing the last two. It took a bicycle kick from Jude Bellingham and extra time for the Three Lions to progress past Slovakia into a quarter-final against Switzerland which was ultimately decided on penalties.

It’s not been smooth sailing for Ronald Koeman’s Netherlands side either. They finished third in the group stage after beating Poland, drawing with France and losing in a 3-2 thriller against Austria. Since then, they put in a dominant display against Romania in the round of 16 and battled from behind to defeat a sharp Turkey team 2-1.

With all that in mind, tonight’s England v Netherlands game is set to be a tense affair. England fans will be optimistic that Harry Kane can finally begin firing and will certainly be hoping for more magic from the likes of Bukayo Saka and Bellingham.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands will be relying on a solid defensive performance from Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk and explosive displays from forwards Memphis Depay and former Spurs man Steven Bergwijn.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at how the two squads currently compare in FC 24.
