Is France vs Netherlands on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Euro 2022 fixture

France look for revenge against the Netherlands in the final quarter-final of what has been a thrilling Women’s Euro 2022.

The French suffered heartache 13 years ago in 2009 when the Dutch edged a penalty shoot-out after a 0-0 draw to advance to the semi-finals.

The winner here will take on Germany, following their win over Austria at the Brentford Community Stadium.

“We’re playing big opponents, and so are they. I don’t think they want to play us,” says Netherlands coach Mark Parsons. “[The last time we met] the result wasn’t what we wanted [a 3-1 defeat in February], but we said that that the next time we played them, we were confident that we would be better. We saw opportunity.”

“We wanted to win the group and we did that after two games. [Against Iceland] I was able to give playing time to other players, and that went very well,” says France coach Corinne Diacre. “We have no new injuries so we have 22 players available for the quarter-finals and that is important. We play on the front foot with great attacking players who create plenty of chances and now we need to be more clinical.”

Here’s everything you need to know about the quarter-final.
