England Vs Netherlands match results

The Three Lions of England has find their way into the European Championship final courtesy of the late goal from Ollie Watkins, who scored at the 90th minute of the match to top Netherlands from the lone goal tie.

Ollie Watkins struck in the die minute of 90 to send England into the Euro 2024 final with a  2-1 win over the Netherlands.

Netherlands opens up the net with an early goal which came at the seventh minute by Xavi Simons but England responded at the 45th minutes through a controversial penalty awarded to Harry Kane after a VAR review.

However, Harry Kane was fortunate to win a penalty, after Denzel Dumfries attempted to close down his shot, but the England captain stepped up to dispatch the spot-kick.

A cagey second-half followed, one that seemed destined to be followed by another 30 minutes, until Watkins gathered Cole Palmer’s pass and from the tightest of angles fired a brilliant finish into the far corner.

England has the opportunity now to become the first English men’s team to win a major final on foreign land to become European champions for the first time, when they face Spain in Sunday’s final. As no English men’s team has made it to a major final on foreign soil before now.
