After making it through the Euro 2024 group stage, teams have navigated their way past a round of 16 opponent and then a rival in the quarterfinals. That brings us to Saturday and we are now down to just four teams, who are paired off in the semifinals, just one game away from the showpiece UEFA final. Let’s take a look at who those hopeful nations are and how they reached this point.

In the first knockout round, England and Portugal made incredibly hard work of seeing off Slovakia (after extra time) and Slovenia (on penalties, with Cristiano Ronaldo in the headlines again) respectively, while hosts Germany needed help from VAR to get past Denmark. Spain, on the other hand, had little difficulty in sweeping Georgia aside and France, despite another stodgy attacking performance, edged past Belgium, much to Kylian Mbappé's delight.

The last two quarterfinal spots were taken by the Netherlands, who defeated Romania in Munich in Tuesday’s early game, and Türkiye, who saw off Austria in an entertaining clash in Leipzig.

Euro 2024 quarterfinal results

As is normally the case for major international tournaments, the bracket for the knockout rounds is defined early, which means the quarterfinal draw became immediately clearer with every passing round-of-16 tie. Spain would face Germany and Portugal would take on France in what definitely appears like the harder side of the draw. The Spanish have been the form side of the tournament thus far but needed a late extra-time goal to overcome the hosts. Their Iberian neighbours were tidy but the French kept them at bay until penalties and held their nerve.

On the other side we had England against Switzerland and the Netherlands vs Türkiye. In wasn’t a classic but the English won’t care too much as they survived until the shootout and stroked five home past Sommer. The Dutch came back from a goal down to end the Turkish dream, but they can leave with heads high after delighting fans with their high quality and energetic play.
