Netherlands overcome Turkey to secure Euro 2024 semi-final spot against England

The Netherlands rallied from a halftime deficit to defeat Turkey and advance to the Euro 2024 semi-finals, setting up a clash with England.

Turkey initially took the lead with Samet Akaydin’s header, celebrating passionately with their fans.

However, the Netherlands equalised through Stefan de Vrij after a crucial defensive play by substitute Wout Weghorst. An own goal from Mert Muldur under pressure from Cody Gakpo eventually sealed the Dutch comeback.

Turkey had several chances to extend their lead, including a free-kick from Arda Guler that hit the post, but failed to capitalise. After a lackluster first half the Dutch found their rhythm in the second, bolstered by Weghorst’s impactful performance.

Despite a late push from Turkey, Netherlands’ goalkeeper Bart Verbruggen and defenders made crucial saves and blocks. The victory sends Ronald Koeman’s team to a highly anticipated semi-final against England, while Turkey’s promising run in the tournament comes to an end.
