Hosts Portugal will face Switzerland and England will play the Netherlands in the semi-finals of the Nations League next June.

The winners of the inaugural competition will receive €7.5m with the runners-up pocketing €6.5m. The first semi takes place on Wednesday 5th June between Portugal v Switzerland at the Estádio do Dragão, home of FC Porto whilst the following day the Netherlands play England at the Estádio D. Afonso Henriques in Guimarães.

Portugal’s record against Switzerland is won seven, drawn five and lost ten. With the Champions League final taking place in Madrid on the 1st June, and the Europa League final just three days before that the squads will have little time in the way of pre-match preparation.
