Euro 2024: Holland Will Overcome England  –Meulensteen

Former Manchester United assistant coach René Meulensteen has predicted that Holland will defeat England in the semi-finals of the ongoing Euro 2024 Championship.

Recall that Holland edged Turkey 2-1 while England defeated Switzerland 5-3 on penalties to reach this stage.

In a chat with TribalFoorball, Meulensteen stated that Holland must utilise every goal scoring opportunities that comes their way.

“I think everybody is surprised, but tournament football is weird and strange. I’ve been in tournament football myself on many occasions and there are some unwritten laws in tournament football where justice is not always served,” former Manchester United assistant coach René Meulensteen tells Tribalfootball.

“You get knocked out because the opposition provides moments of absolutely sheer quality which you can’t defend against. That’s why the best teams are there in the semi-final. Or you give stupid fouls away, a stupid penalty, maybe a stupid red card. All those things can decide those knockout games.

“Also, the pressure that goes with it, who’s dealing with it best because of what’s at stake, obviously. I really hope it’s going to be a better game than we saw in the quarterfinals. I hope we’re going to see much more action, otherwise this European Championship starts to turn out a little bit dull,” Meulensteen said.
