IT’S crunch time between the SNP’s former and current Westminster leaders as Stephen Flynn’s England faces off against Ian Blackford’s Netherlands for a spot in the Euro 2024 finals.

We wonder if Flynn has swapped his Toblerone for a Stroopwafel for his breakfast, or if he will be backing Gareth Southgate's men to get the job done this evening.

The England squad have joined a long list of top European teams which have struggled in this tournament, but thanks to a certain Jude Bellingham and Bukayo Saka, they have managed to find themselves in another semi-final.

If there was ever a moment to step up and start playing world-class football, there is no better time than now, as the England squad will have to overcome a decent Netherlands side.

If England wants a shot at vindication from the 2020 Euro finals, where they lost to Italy on penalties, they will have to vastly step up their game this evening and they certainly have the talent to do so.

Otherwise, it's £100 to Blackford's charity. 

A reminder that Flynn is playing for Community Food Initiatives North East.

If there wasn’t already enough incentive for Blackford to get behind the country he used to call home, there is an added £100 bonus if the Netherlands do beat England this evening.

Even if Blackford’s side doesn’t lift the trophy in the final, we will still donate £100 to his chosen charity.

The former MP will be hoping that the Dutch side can continue their momentum from the quarter-finals where they showcased a gutsy performance to comeback from 1-0 down to win 2-1 against Turkey.

Just like England the Netherlands have a star-studded lineup with some of the biggest names in football who haven’t quite lived up to their world-class reputation in this tournament.

Blackford will be hoping his Dutch side can deliver a footballing masterclass, or at the very least get the game over the line, as he looks to raise money for Lucky2BeHere.

The stage is set as they say. Will we be in for the show of the tournament? With a place in the Euro 2024 final up for grabs the stakes couldn’t be any higher.
