With all eyes on the evening game in Chittagong between Sri Lanka and New Zealand, England will hope the match will continue to slip under the radar come the final delivery as they look to avoid a second momentous upset against the Dutch, after the latter's brilliant win over them in Lord's in the World T20 in 2009.
"We are all disappointed with where the team is," England limited-overs coach Ashley Giles said. "Losing games of cricket is not fun, losing series and getting knocked out of World Cups is not fun. We are here to build and we try to do that every day.
"Going forward we have to work incredibly hard and be better in a lot of departments than we are. We have to better our position across the board, skills, fielding, fitness -- all areas we need to pinpoint. Not so much one percenters but 10 percenters where we need to improve to make sure that we win games.
"That will take time. If you are looking for a quick fix or for some magician to come in with a wand then that isn't going to happen. We need to develop our young players and look after and keep pushing our senior players.
"There should be no easy way out into retirement. We have some great senior assets around. We need to keep them fresh and keep them hungry for the betterment of English cricket."
The Netherlands have been quite impressive after their record-breaking defeat to Sri Lanka in their opening match of Group 1, giving South Africa a scare, and then some, before handing New Zealand a real fight and taking the game right to the end.
A win over England to finish their tournament off on a high would be the perfect way for the Netherlands to bid goodbye from the tournament in which they have added colour, excitement and plenty of quality.
"From a cricketing point of view, this has been one of the best tournaments I've been involved with, playing in front of sold-out crowds every night, games going down to the wire, the atmosphere being absolutely amazing and coupled with some extremely good cricket, that's all you can ask for," Netherlands interim coach Anton Roux said.
"I think the challenge is not so much worrying about what England are feeling. There's also a lot of drained bodies and tired minds in our camp. In this group alone, apart from our game against Sri Lanka, all the games have gone pretty much down to the wire.
"That's emotionally taxing, more than anything physical, so [we need] to keep the guys nice and fresh and ready for that big upset again, because I'm sure it won't be a walk in the park, it's going to be a fight to the death and so hopefully we'll be up for it."
Team news: England: Stuart Broad continues to struggle with his knee and the skipper might decide to sit out the match, considering it is a dead rubber, meaning a possible game for Chris Woakes. England's bowling has been woeful this World T20, while their batting has been quite impressive. A few changes in the bowling department might be in order, even if the only other change possible is bringing in spinner Stephen Parry.
Netherlands: Skipper Peter Borren and the team management will want to stick the bulk of the team considering their two good recent performances, but a couple of the guys who haven't received an opportunity in this tournament might also be hoping for a chance to impress.
Expected lineups: England: Alex Hales, Michael Lumb, Ian Bell, Eoin Morgan (capt), Jos Buttler, Ravi Bopara, Chris Woakes, Tim Bresnan, Chris Jordan, Stephen Parry, James Tredwell.
Netherlands: Michael Swart, Stephan Myburg, Wesley Barresi, Peter Borren, Tom Cooper, Ben Cooper, Logan Van Beek, Timm Van Der Gugten, Mudassar Bukhari, Pieter Seelar, Ahsan Malik.
