Looking for a Netherlands v Sweden live stream? We've got you covered with our handy guide. 

The Netherlands get their European Championship title defence underway with a mouth-watering opener against Olympic silver medallists Sweden in Sheffield on Saturday night.

The Group C clash promises to be one of the most hotly contested fixtures of the group stage, and could well decide who finishes top.

Both sides have serious Euros pedigree; Sweden won the first ever European Championship in 1984, while Netherlands clinched the 2017 crown.

The Swedes, who finished as runners-up at the last two Olympic Games, will be looking for revenge for their quarter-final exit to the Oranje five years ago.

They have a habit of meeting each other in major tournaments, as a Jackie Groenen extra-time winner gave the Dutch a 1-0 win in their 2019 Women’s World Cup semi-final clash in Lyon.

And it’s the Netherlands who have the better recent record, winning the last three meetings to record the longest winning run in the history of this fixture.

But Sweden have the better overall record, winning 10 of their 22 meetings, while drawing five and losing seven.

The Dutch head into Euro 2022 on a run of four wins and one defeat in their last five – although that loss was a 5-1 thumping at the hands of England.

Sweden, meanwhile, are on a 12-match unbeaten run stretching back to August last year, wining 11 and drawing one.

Kick-off is at 8.00pm BST on Saturday 9 July and it is being shown by BBC One in the UK. See below for international broadcast options.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Euro 2022 football from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a round of Euro 2022 fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
