The Netherlands U-21 and Germany U-21 lock horns in the semi-final of the U-21 European championship at the MOL Aréna Sóstó in Hungary for a place in Sunday's final.

The Germans saw off Denmark on penalties in the last round and, having finished as runners-up in the 2019 edition, they have unfinished business in the competition.

Erwin van de Looi's Oranje squad, meanwhile, beat heavyweights France in the quarter-finals, with Myron Boadu netting a second-half brace to cancel out Dayot Upmecano's early opener.

This is their first semi-final appearance since 2013, their last appearance in the competition before the current edition. They are aiming to reach the finals after 14 years, when they were crowned champions.
