In a thrilling semi-final clash, England secured their spot in the Euro 2024 final by defeating the Netherlands 2-1 in Dortmund on Wednesday.

Substitute Ollie Watkins delivered the decisive goal in the 91st minute, propelling the Three Lions to victory.

The match began with the Netherlands taking an early lead, thanks to a powerful strike from Xavi Simons in the seventh minute. However, England quickly responded when captain Harry Kane converted a penalty, awarded after he was brought down by Denzel Dumfries, to equalize.

As the game appeared to be heading into extra time, Watkins made a crucial impact off the bench. Receiving a precise pass from Cole Palmer, he executed a fine turn and delivered a low finish to score the winning goal in the dying moments of the match.
