A heavyweight clash kicks off the Group B action as World Cup runners-up France face the Netherlands to begin their Euro 2024 qualifying campaign.

Les Bleus fell agonisingly short of a successful title defence in Qatar, losing to Argentina on penalties in the final despite a spirited comeback and stunning Kylian Mbappe hat-trick.

The Oranje suffered a similar fate, as Wout Weghorst’s dramatic late double sent their quarter-final against Lionel Messi’s men the distance, only for them to fail in a shoot-out.

Ronald Koeman has since re-taken the reins of the Dutch national team and will make his second debut in Paris against a French side looking to put the pain of Qatar behind them.

Kick-off is at 7:45pm GMT. 

Team news

A few familiar faces will be absent for France, as this is their first game since Hugo Lloris, Raphael Varane and Karim Benzema announced their international retirement.

Wesley Fofana and William Saliba withdrew from the Bleus squad through injury, while Koeman is without Frenkie de Jong and Steven Bergwijn for the same reason.

VPN guide

Use a VPN to watch Euro 2024 qualifiers from outside your country

If you’re out of the country for a Euro 2024 qualifier, then you won't be able to watch on your domestic streaming service as usual. The broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!) and blocks you from watching it. You can use a VPN to get around that, though, without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs, creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and will let you watch. And all the info going between is entirely encrypted, anonymous and safe – and that's a result.

There are plenty of good-value options out there. For the Euro 2024 qualifiers, FourFourTwo currently recommends:


ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS5 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
