EURO 2024. Netherlands – England: the English snatch their place in the final on the gong, the summary of the match

EURO 2024 Netherlands England the English snatch their place

England beat the Netherlands in the final seconds on Wednesday (2-1) and snatched their ticket to the Euro 2024 final against Spain.

23:15 – Match summary

England won in the final moments against the Netherlands and went to the final of Euro 2024 (2-1). The start of the match was particularly open and Xavi Simons launched it with an absolute masterpiece. The Parisian got in the way of the goal and let loose a super-powerful shot into the top corner (7′). The English reaction was quick. Harry Kane won a penalty after a sole from Dumfries and did justice to himself with a perfectly taken penalty (17′). Just after, the Three Lions thought they had taken the lead after Foden’s festival. Verbruggen was deceived but Dumfries saved his team with a huge return on his line (23′). And in an exceptional first half, Dumfries would make headlines again. The defender hit the bar with a header (30′) just before Foden’s post two minutes later. The second half was unfortunately much less exciting. Both teams are more cautious and we have to wait until the 64th minute to see the first thrill of this second act. Van Dijk takes a free kick from Veerman but Pickford saves his team. After a goal disallowed for Saka (79′), the two teams seem to be heading towards extra time but Ollie Watkins, who came on a few moments before, will qualify his nation with a pure striker’s goal (90′). The Dutch will lack time to be able to come back. England therefore has a date with Spain this Sunday, July 14 for the Euro 2024 final.

23:05 – A second final in a row

The Three Lions, who had not reached a Euro final before 2021, will therefore be making their second consecutive appearance in two editions of a European Championship. On the other hand, the Dutch lose for the fourth time in history at this stage of the competition.

23:00 – A final against Spain

England will be at the final this Sunday, July 14 at 9 p.m. The Three Lions will therefore face La Roja who beat France on Tuesday.

Virgil Van Dijk receives a yellow card for protesting in this Netherlands – England match.

The English winger is late on Gakpo and commits a foul which earns him a booking in this Netherlands – England.

22:44 – Bellingham’s beautiful gesture (85′)

The former Borussia Dortmund player mystified his opponent with an exceptional little bridge. He gets the fault for this same situation.

The Dutch action was exceptional but Weghorst cannot conclude because Guehi made a very good defensive return.

22:39 – Two strong choices! (80′)

Southgate brings off two key players for the final minutes of the Netherlands v England match. Cole Palmer and Ollie Watkins replace Phil Foden and Harry Kane.

22:38 – The goal is disallowed! (79′)

Saka celebrates but it is short-lived as Walker, the decisive passer, is finally flagged offside. A big thrill for the Dutch.

22:36 – Simons’ volley! (78′)

The ball lands at Simons’ feet in the box. The Dutch striker of this Netherlands – England game hits his shot which ends up in Pickford’s gloves.

22:35 – The Three Lions suffer (77′)

The balance of power is rather clear in these last minutes. The Netherlands are installed in the opposing camp facing an English wall.

22:33 – Walker’s decisive return (74′)

Walker’s return is perfect as Gakpo could go one-on-one with Pickford.

22:22 – There is waste (63′)

This second period is much less exciting than the first in this Netherlands – England. Both nations play much less well. This missed recovery from Guehi is only the symbol of it.

22:19 – Veerman misses his cross (61′)

What a lack of precision from the Dutch midfielder on this cross to Weghorst. The ball ends up in a goal kick and Pickford can relaunch his team in this Netherlands – England.

22:17 – De Vrij doesn’t give up (59′)

The Dutch defender intervenes opportunely on Harry Kane who was trying to turn after a nice pass between the lines.
