After a 3-2 opening victory against Ukraine, Netherlands coasted past Austria 2-0 to confirm top spot in Group C. Frank de Boer may consider resting some stars against today’s opponents, with a view to the last-16 stages, where his team will face one of the four best third-place finishers in Budapest on June 27th.

Given their qualification through the Nations League, no-one saw North Macedonia progressing to the knockout stages. They have, however, provided a good account of themselves, scoring against both Austria and Ukraine in respectable defeats. Due to the head-to-head nature of Euro 2020’s group rulings, Igor Angelovski’s men can’t finish above bottom in Group C, so they will simply be playing for pride in Amsterdam today.

Hello and welcome to live coverage of the Group C fixture between North Macedonia and Netherlands.
