during the UEFA Nations League A group four match between England and Croatia at Wembley Stadium on November 18, 2018 in London, United Kingdom.

England have been drawn against Netherlands in the semi-finals of the UEFA Nations League, with Portugal to play Switzerland in the other semi.

Gareth Southgate’s men qualified for the last four of the inaugural tournament with a late victory over Croatia last month, topping their group.

The tie will be played in Guimaraes in Portugal on June 6.

Hosts Portugal will play Switzerland in the other last-four tie on June 5 in Porto.

The final and third-place play-off will take place on June 9.

Southgate now knows the route his side must take to get their hands on a trophy next summer.

Their clash with Holland, managed by Ronald Koeman, will be the first competitive meeting between the sides since Euro 96, when Southgate played in a memorable 4-1 win for the Three Lions.

Portugal or Switzerland would await in the final, both teams England played in Euro 2004, which was held in Portugal.
