England take on the Netherlands with a place in the Euro 2024 final on the line. The two European powerhouses clash at 8pm in Borussia Dortmund's Westfalenstadion.

Spain beat France 2-1 on Tuesday night and await the winner in Sunday's final.

Early team news has been leaked and Gareth Southgate is expected to continue with the three at the back. Luke Shaw is not deemed fit to make his first start of the tournament so Kieran Trippier will continue at left-back.

There is only set to be one change as Marc Guehi returns from suspension to replace Ezri Konsa.

Meanwhile, England and Dutch fans were evacuated from the Dortmund fan zone last night due to a severe storm warning.

The two groups of fans had gathered to watch the first semi-final but a message flashed up on the screen at 9pm local time asking for fans to leave the area quickly.

Friendly atmosphere

A friendly atmosphere is building in Dortmund where both sets of fans are mingling trouble-free.

Our photographer Andy Stenning caught a group of Dutch supporters kindly kindly helping an England fan in a wheelchair off a curb.

He also snapped a pleasant shot of English and Dutch signing together.

Kane responds to questions over his fitness

Harry Kane has insisted that there are no concerns over his fitness and that he is getting ‘better and sharper’ after questions were raised about his condition at Euro 2024.

The England skipper has been criticised for some of his displays at Euro 2024, prompting calls for Ivan Toney to lead the line against the Netherlands instead of the Bayern Munich star.

But Kane has declared that he feels that he is improving with every match for the Three Lions, saying: “I think there are always going to be times... especially if you look over the last couple of major tournaments, there's always been at some stage question marks over my fitness or my form.

“I think it is part and parcel of it. I always say I want to score in every game, I want to try and help the team in every game from that sense, but also my role isn't just scoring goals.

"Maybe sometimes when I don't score I think the fitness one is an easy one just to throw in now – 'Why? Is there a reason? Is it his fitness? Is it not?' But like I said before the tournament, I felt like I had a good preparation going into it, I felt like I'm getting better and sharper as the games go along.”

Fan zone evacuated

The fan zone in Dortmund was evacuated last night while England and Netherlands fans were attempting to watch France vs Spain.

A messaged appeared on the big screens that read: "The fan zone is being cleared. Please leave the area!"

The storm passed overnight so the fan zone reopened on Wednesday morning.

But it quickly reached it's capacity due to the 80,000 Dutch fans that have travelled the short distance over the border.
