A bumper day of action greets us on the penultimate day of group action at EURO 2024. Group C and Group D will be in the spotlight today as France, the Netherlands and England are all in action. Follow all the action live with us here at Flashscore throughout the day.

Listen to our live audio commentary of England vs Slovenia and Denmark vs Serbia from 20:55 CET.

22:58 CET - To confirm, Denmark finish second Group C thanks to a better qualifying record than Slovenia, who qualify in third. That is because the two sides had the same points, goal difference, goals scored and yellow cards. 

22:53 CET - Denmark and Serbia also finishes 0-0. Bitter disappointment for Serbia, who go out despite losing just once. Denmark will be in the last 16 too thanks to the result. Although after 180 combined minutes of football between these four sides without a goal, it could be argued none of them will make tough opposition in the next round.

22:51 CET - It's over, mercifully, in Cologne - England draw 0-0 with Slovenia, who celebrate wildly as they have also qualified for the knockout phase with the result.

22:49 CET - England finally find room, and Cole Palmer gets a shot away, but it's straight at the keeper. He should have done better. Serbia, desperate for a goal, are flooding men forward. Sergej Milonkevic-Savic has a shot saved. 

22:47 CET - Five minutes to be added on between Denmark and Serbia, four between England and Slovenia...

22:44 CET - Serbia need to win to progress, but they are clearing the ball away off their goal-line to keep Denmark out. Nearling the end of the 90...

22:38 CET - With 10 minutes to go, we still await our first goal in either game, who will be our saviour? One goal is all it takes, as Dua Lipa once said, to change the group. Aleksander Mitrovic is at least providing some entertainment with his version of the 'dark arts' and it has earned him a booking for simulation.

22:30 CET - Denmark have claims for a penalty waved away by the referee after what looked like a slight push on Morten Hjulmand - nothing doing though.

22:28 CET - Both games continue to meander on, an England fan has been pictured asleep whilst the Serbia fans are roaring there team on with gusto.

Takes all sorts, football.

22:20 CET - Over the hour mark in both games and England have certainly used the left flank more tonight as they seek a goal. According to our ratings, Kieran Trippier is the highest rated player of that match with a 7.9 as things stand.

Still though, we search on and on for a goal, and as we look, we find Germany have scored more goals on their own so far this tournament than Group C - talk about a 'Group of Death'.

22:12 CET - Serbia have the ball in the net this time against Denmark, but it is ruled out for offside - an easy decision for VAR and we remain goalless. As things stand, England will top the group with five points, whilst Denmark will go through based on coefficient in second due to qualifying results as they and Slovenia both have the same points, goal difference, goals scored and yellow cards. 

22:07 CET - Although nothing clear-cut in either game, the tempo has certainly picked up with England now encamped in Slovenia's half. Phil Foden lets fly from range, but it is harmless.

22:03 CET - Just 45 minutes to go in Group C, and after the first half, that feels more like a blessing right now. Will we see more action in the second period? Serbia are one of the sides to roll the dice, Dusan Tadic and Luka Jovic both coming on, whilst Kobbie Mainoo is on for England in place of Conor Gallagher.

21:49 CET - Even for the purists that was a tough watch as both games go into the interval goalless.

England went closest through Harry Kane, but Slovenia looked the more fluid of the two sides. Meanwhile Denmark and Serbia slugged it out without causing much troubles, Jonas Wind should have done better when well placed late on in the first half.

21:39 CET - A chance for Denmark as Jonas Wind finds some space at the edge of the box only to lean back and fire his shot over the bar. It's slim pickings for chances in either game so far. Then, out of nothing, Kieran Trippier whips in a teasing cross, which Harry Kane is oh so close to turning in. That is the closest any side has come to breaking the two deadlocks.

21:27 CET - To say we have been light of entertainment so far is a little bit of an understatement - across both games there has been a combined xG of 0.44. Honestly, that feels generous.

21:24 CET - It's Denmark's turn to put the ball in the net, but that has also been chalked off. Christian Eriksen's corner goes out of play before being bundled in and there is a foul on the keeper too. That really didn't have much going for it. But, there is something else to get excited about in Munich tonight...

21:21 CET - England show some fluidity down the left that sees Phil Foden free. He squares it to Bukayo Saka who applies the finish, but the flag is up. Despite the disallowed goal, England will take some encouragement from that.

21:18 CET - Almost simultaneously, Denmark and Slovenia both produce dangerous crosses that threaten to cause havoc, but both Serbia and England respectively, just about deal with them. As we said, it's cagey. Kieran Trippier picks up a yellow for a late tackle, he will have to watch his step for the rest of the encounter in Cologne.

21:12 CET - Sasa Lukic has the first opening in anger against Denmark for Serbia, but his pass is overhit and goes out for a goal kick. It feels tense in both games after the opening 10 minutes.

21:05 CET - No doubt there are some nerves in both stadiums and England are the first to show it, giving the ball away cheaply in their own half twice in the opening five minutes. Slovenia cannot capitalise, but it's a warning sign for the group leaders.

21:00 CET - Teams out, anthems sung, crowd ready, let's get down to business in Group C. Remember you can listen to every kick of the game by clicking on the links above.

Here's how the group looks as we kick-off in Munich and Cologne.

20:45 CET - Just 15 minutes to go until we see how Group C will finish tonight. Will it be England topping the group?

20:37 CET - There have already been a lot of records broken in this tournament, and there is another tonight as Christian Eriksen will set a record for most appearances for Denmark in the Euro 2024 Group C match with Serbia, with the midfielder playing his 133rd international game.

And another little bit of history after Poland's earlier 1-1 draw with France as with that no country will leave EURO 2024 with zero points. It is the first time that has happened at the Euros since 1992.

Eriksen will have one more cap than defender Simon Kjaer who is on the bench and would tie for the record again if he comes on.

20:34 CET - Here is some reaction to the Netherlands' loss to Austria, which saw them finish third in Group D.

Netherlands captain Virgil van Dijk said after the game: "We started the match weakly, in possession of the ball and in our duels. Then you are behind the game. We lacked energy. We talked about it at halftime.

"This is incomprehensible, at a finals tournament. I have no explanation for this at the moment. We all have to do a lot more for this is bad. If we want to achieve something at this European Championship, something has to change very quickly. We are all responsible for this."

20:25 CET - Moving on from the drama of Group D, it's now time for the final two games in Group C as England look to secure top spot against Slovenia, while Denmark and Serbia battle it out for a place in the knockout rounds.

Here's the team line-ups for England vs Slovenia, with Conor Gallagher replacing Trent Alexander-Arnold in midfield.

19:05 CET - Wow! What a start to the second half for Netherlands. Substitute Xavi Simons tees up Cody Gakpo, who cuts inside his marker to curl a sublime strike into the far corner. Parity restored in Berlin.

18:40 CET - Ronald Koeman has made an early change, withdrawing the ineffectual Joey Veerman after just 35 minutes. Austria nearly double their lead moments later, as Marko Arnautovic fluffs his lines with a gilt-edged chance inside the six-yard box.

18:00 CET - All four anthems have sounded and we're now underway in both matches. 

17:30 CET - We're just 30 minutes away from kick-off and French fans are certainly happy to see their talismanic forward, Kylian Mbappe, back in the team after suffering a broken nose earlier in the tournament. Some are even sporting their own masks!

17:05 CET - The team news is in for Group D's final round of matches!

Starting in Dortmund where France face Poland, the major news is that Kylian Mbappe is fit to start.

Didier Deschamps also brings in Bradley Barcola for his first start of the tournament, while Poland have Robert Lewandowski back.

16:30 CET - The Netherlands supporters are once again in full force this afternoon as they get ready for a crunch match against Austria in Berlin!

16:20 CET - Here are the permutations for each of the four sides in Group D this evening:

Netherlands - Already qualified for last-16. Need to match or better France's result to top the group.

France - Already qualified for last-16. Need to better Netherlands' result to top the group.

Austria - A win would secure a top-two spot and a place in the knockout stages. Can still qualify as one of the best third-placed sides with a draw or defeat. 

Poland - Already eliminated from the tournament, irrespective of their result.

15:30 CET - Hello and welcome to another pivotal day of action at EURO 2024. With qualification spots still up for grabs in both groups, it will be another intriguing set of matches for us to get our teeth into.

France, though, will have it slightly easier, as after last night's results, they know that they have already qualfiied for the last 16. They face the already eliminated Poland, giving us a first defacto dead rubber of the tournament.

The other game in Group D at 18:00 CET sees the Netherlands face Austria. Both teams can finish anywhere from third to first in the group, but it is Austria who need points if they are to avoid a wait for third place.
