Watkins’ Goal Against Netherlands Sends England To Euro Finals

July 11, (THEWILL) – England earned their place in the Euro 2024 final after a thrilling 2-1 win against the Netherlands. The match, held at the Westfalenstadion, saw England come from behind to clinch victory in the closing moments.

The Netherlands took an early lead through Xavi Simons, who capitalised on a mistake by Declan Rice. However, England equalised before halftime when Harry Kane converted a penalty after a foul on him by Denzel Dumfries. The goal made Kane the top scorer in Euro knockout matches.

The second half was a tense affair, with both teams creating chances. England thought they had taken the lead through Bukayo Saka, but the goal was ruled out for offside. As the match seemed headed for extra time, substitute, Ollie Watkins, scored a dramatic winner in stoppage time, sending England to the final.
