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.

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.
