Netherlands came from behind on Saturday to down Turkey 2-1 and set up a Euro 2024 semi-final clash with England.

A Stefan de Vrij header and Mert Muldur own goal inside the last 20 minutes wiped out Samet Akaydin’s first-half opener in the quarter-final and allowed the Dutch to book their place in Wednesday’s last-four tie in Dortmund.
