Euro 2024 Quarter-Finals: Portugal vs France and England vs Switzerland

Diogo Jota vs. Ibrahima Konate

A thrilling encounter is on the horizon as Diogo Jota’s Portugal takes on Ibrahima Konate’s France on Friday evening in Hamburg.

Jota has been a crucial impact substitute for Portugal, featuring in three of their four matches. His most recent contribution came in the penalty shootout win against Slovakia. Portugal’s attack has been formidable, and Jota’s ability to make a difference off the bench could be vital against a strong French side.

Konate, on the other hand, is yet to make an appearance for France in Euro 2024. Despite not featuring so far, his defensive prowess makes him a valuable option should he be called upon. France finished second in Group D and edged out Belgium 1-0 in the Round of 16, underlining their tactical solidity.

England is set to face Switzerland in Dusseldorf on Saturday evening (UK time). Trent Alexander-Arnold has been a versatile asset for the Three Lions, starting in two Group C fixtures and coming on as a substitute in a draw against Slovenia. Although he didn’t feature in the extra-time victory over Slovakia in the Round of 16, his creativity and crossing ability make him a crucial player for England’s hopes.

Joe Gomez is yet to make an appearance for England, but his defensive skills could be pivotal in the latter stages if England progresses.

Netherlands Trio: Gakpo, Van Dijk, and Gravenberch

The Netherlands will cap off the quarter-finals with a showdown against Turkiye in Berlin on Saturday night (UK time). Cody Gakpo, Ryan Gravenberch, and Virgil van Dijk represent Liverpool’s interests in the Dutch squad.

Gakpo has been sensational, netting three goals in four matches, making him a joint contender for the Golden Boot. His clinical finishing will be crucial for the Dutch as they aim to navigate past a resilient Turkish side. Van Dijk has been the cornerstone of the Netherlands’ defense, captaining his team in all four games. His leadership and defensive solidity will be vital in countering Turkiye’s attacking threats. Gravenberch, though yet to make an appearance, is a young talent with the potential to make an impact if given the chance.
