This would be a disaster

There are growing fears that beer could run out during England vs Netherlands on Wednesday in Dortmund.

The semi-final clash is highly anticipated on all cylinders and there are going to be around 85,000 Dutch fans alone arriving in the city.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Dutch journalist Marcel van der Kraan says approximately 1.2 million beers will be consumed on Wednesday between the English and Dutch. That’s a staggering number.

“We’re expecting 80/85,000 Dutch fans, which is the biggest invasion ever. The Orange march, the new song has become absolutely huge.

“Every town has been turned upside down by this Orange crowd. Dortmund is preparing to host these, but they don’t know how yet, because they only have fan-zones for 25,000, 30,000 maybe!

“Holland alone will bring 85,000. There is a fear that the beer will run out, with 40,000 English fans there and the Dutch, it would mean it would probably come to 1.2m beers!”

On the pitch, the Netherlands are ecstatic after coming from behind to defeat Turkey 2-1 to reach the semi-final.

Known for their incredible support, the nation was on the other hand in shock following their group stage defeat to Austria, which subsequently led them to finish 3rd in the group.

However, the Dutch side have rallied under Ronald Koeman and have since brushed past Romania and Turkey.

Cody Gakpo has stole headlines for his performances and goals, meaning he could definitely be one to watch out for.

Another player that has always scored priceless goals for the team is Burnley’s Wout Weghorst, who came off the bench to bag a brace versus Argentina in the 2022 World Cup.

This time around, it was the winner off the bench against Poland. He’s always in the right place at the right time it seems.

Xavi Simons is another young prodigy to keep an eye on, with his controversial disallowed goal versus France that the masses believe should have stood.

The time is ticking until the two great European nations face off for a place in Berlin.
