Just five days after the UEFA Champions League final in Madrid featured two English Premier League teams, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, which featured seven players who also serve on England’s national team, those players must be ready for another high-pressure match. England takes on the Netherlands in the second semifinal of the UEFA Nations League for the right to face Portugal, who defeated Switzerland on Wednesday, in the final on Sunday. But according to a report in Britain’s The Guardian newspaper, England manager Gareth Southgate may keep all seven of those players, including team captain Harry Kane, on the sidelines for the match that will live stream from Portugal.

On the Dutch side, Virgil van Dijk — who plays club football for the newly-crowned European champions Liverpool — is apparently being afforded no such luxury by manager Ronald Koeman, who has penciled van Dijk in to start the Nations League semifinal, according to a BBC report.
The Nations League semifinal marks the second time in as many tournaments that Southgate has led England to the semifinals of a major international competition, as UEFA.com noted, after taking the team to the semifinal of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The most recent year that England reached a World Cup semifinal was 1990 when their opponent was West Germany, a country that no longer exists, as the BBC noted. When England played in last year’s World Cup semifinal, they faced Croatia, a country that had not yet come into being in 1990.
