The Lyon star set up a pair of goals for the Dutch in Thursday's 3-1 extra-time win over England. They'll face host nation Portugal in the final.

Memphis was decisive once again on the international stage Thursday night, notching two assists to guide the Netherlands to a 3-1 extra-time win over England in the UEFA Nations League semifinals. The Lyon star set up Matthijs de Ligt's 73rd-minute equalizer off a corner kick that canceled out Marcus Rashford's opening penalty kick goal before turning provider for Quincy Promes, who put the game to bed in the 114th minute. Now Memphis and company turn their attention to Sunday's final in Porto against home side Portugal, who beat Switzerland in the previous round - also by a 3-1 scoreline - thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick.
