England Reach Euro Final Again After Dramatic Win Against Netherlands

An Ollie Watkins netted a late goal to give England a 2-1 win against the Netherlands and a place in this year’s Euro final.

England have now reached back-to-back European Championship final.

This is the first time the Three Lions would qualify for a final at a major tournament outside their country. They reached the 1966 World Cup and Euro 2020 finals.

For the Netherlands, they have now lost in four consecutive Euro Championship semi-finals (1992, 2000, 2004, 2024).

Ronald Koeman’s men got off to a very good start thanks to Xavi Simons who put them 1-0 ahead on seven minutes.

Harry Kane then drew England level in the 18th minute from the penalty spot.

Then in the 91st minute Watkins, who replaced Kane with nine minutes left, netted the winner as he hit a low right-foot shot off a pass from Cole Palmer.

England will now take on three-time European Championship winners Spain in the final on Sunday in Berlin.

The Spaniard sealed their place in the final after also coming from a goal down to beat France 2-1 in the first semi-final on Tuesday.
