England beat the Netherlands 2-1 in Dortmund on Wednesday night to advance to the final of EURO 2024.

The Dutch quickly got off the mark, with Xavi Simons putting his side ahead in the seventh minute with a fine strike.

However, England found an equaliser 11 minutes later when Harry Kane scored a contentious penalty.

Although both sides had opportunities, with England’s Phil Foden and Denzel Dumfries of the Netherlands hitting the woodwork, the Three Lions would carry the day thanks to a last-minute winner by substitute Ollie Watkins.

On Tuesday, Spain booked their place in the final after beating France 2-1 in Munich.
