Netherlands v Scotland live stream, Sky Sports, Wednesday 2 June, 7.45pm BST

Scotland’s first major tournament appearance in 23 years is just days away and to prepare they have lined up two friendly games, firstly against the Netherlands.

Anticipation is building for the Tartan Army’s return to the big time for the first time since the 1998 World Cup.

Steve Clarke’s side face a stern test against a talented Dutch side at the Estadio Algarve in Portugal before their final warm-up game against Luxembourg four days later.

During the March international break, the Scots drew with Israel and Austria and beat the Faroe Islands 4-0, while the Dutch beat Gibraltar and Latvia but fell to a 4-2 defeat against Turkey.

It’s not a fixture that will bring back fond memories for Scotland fans, as the Netherlands have won the last four meetings between the teams by an aggregate score of 11-0, most recently a 1-0 friendly win in Aberdeen in 2017.

However, the Dutch have a surprisingly poor friendly record, winning just one of their last six.

Scotland begin their Euro 2020 campaign against the Czech Republic on June 14 in Glasgow, before facing England on June 18 and Croatia on June 22 in Group D.

The Netherlands are in Group C and will face a final warm-up game against Georgia before taking on Ukraine on June 13, Austria on June 17 and North Macedonia on June 21.

Kick-off is at 7.45pm BST and the game is being shown on Sky Sports (opens in new tab) in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Netherlands v Scotland live stream from outside your country

If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below). 

All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.

There are plenty of options out there, including: 

ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it! 

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps

A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.

Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price

It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
