Despite England’s attack impressing, Holland were the better side in the first-half and could have counted themselves unlucky to be a goal down.

The Dutch continued to impress after the break and forced England to sit deep in their own half.

With a little under 20 minutes to go, De Ligt beat John Stones and Kyle Walker at the near-post from a corner as he smashed in a header from six yards to level the scores.

Jesse Lingard thought he had given England a late win after being played through by Ross Barkley, however, VAR adjudged him to have started from an offside position as the game went into extra-time.

A sloppy Stones then had the ball nicked away from him by Memphis Depay, whose shot was parried by Jordan Pickford. Walker slid in to tackle Quincy Promes, however the substitute’s shot struck the full-back and rolled over the line.

England continued their crumble in extra-time as Barkley was caught out whilst playing out from the back, with Depay nipping in again and setting Promes up once more, with the Sevilla forward rounding off a 3-1 win.
