England Set to Face Spain in Euro 2024 Final After Thrilling 2-1 Win Over Netherlands


Reading time: 2 Minutes


England has secured a spot in the Euro 2024 final against Spain after a stunning 2-1 victory over the Netherlands in Dortmund.

Substitute Ollie Watkins scored a late winner, sending the Three Lions to their second consecutive European Championship final.

The match began badly for England, as Xavi Simons gave the Netherlands an early lead with a stunning goal in the seventh minute.

However, England reacted swiftly and were soon level through a Harry Kane penalty following a contentious VAR call by German referee Felix Zwayer.

The match seemed destined for extra time until Watkins, who had replaced Kane in the 84th minute, received a pass from fellow substitute Cole Palmer with his back to goal in the first minute of stoppage time.

He turned and fired low into the far corner, leaving the Netherlands completely stunned.

England’s win marks a historic achievement, despite a less-than-convincing campaign. Spain, who defeated France 2-1 on Tuesday, will have an extra day to prepare for the final.

The Netherlands’ defeat ends their bid to repeat their 1988 Euros triumph, while England’s victory sets up a thrilling final against Spain.

England’s coach, Gareth Southgate, praised his team’s resilience and determination, saying, “We showed our character and resolve. We’re ready to make history on Sunday.”

The final promises to be an electrifying contest between England and Spain, with the Three Lions aiming to finally bring home a major trophy.

England’s players and fans alike are dreaming of ending the 58-year wait for a major tournament title.

Will England’s dream become a reality, or will Spain’s outstanding team stand in their way? The world will be watching on Sunday to find out.

This victory is a testament to England’s determination and grit, as they have faced numerous challenges throughout the tournament.

Despite not winning any of their last four matches in 90 minutes, England has shown their ability to persevere and come out on top.

The Netherlands, on the other hand, will be disappointed by their defeat, but they can take pride in their performance throughout the tournament.

The stage is now set for a thrilling final between England and Spain, two teams with a rich history in football.

The world will be watching as these two teams battle it out for the coveted Euro 2024 title.
