FULL TIME: NETHERLANDS 3-1 ENGLAND (aet)

England did their best to lose this, they shot themselves in the foot. John Stones and Ross Barkley were both dispossessed in their own box, to gift two Dutch goals in extra time. 

England had the lead through a first-half penalty from Marcus Rashford, but Matthijs de Ligt pegged them back with a towering header in the second half to send the game to extra time. 

Jesse Lingard thought he had won it with a goal almost at the end of regulation time, but his goal was disallowed for offside after a VAR check. 

In the end, though, England have only themselves to blame. 

The Netherlands play Portugal in the final on Sunday night
120+1' PEEEEPPPP! THE NETHERLANDS ARE THROUGH TO THE UEFA NATIONS LEAGUE FINAL
120' One minute of added time at the end of the game. 
117' Kane's shot from distance is blocked by De Ligt and goes behind for a corner. 
116' Wijnaldum with a superb through ball to Memphis, and he's got on it before Stones, and looks to dink it over Pickford, but has got too much on it and sent it over the bar. 
114' GOOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!! QUINCY PROMES HAS WRAPPED IT UP!

Barkley has played back pass straight to Memphis, and he's squared it Promes who has an open goal to tap into and he does! England shoot themselves in the foot again. 
113' The Netherlands now make their fourth and final change of the night. Frenkie de Jong, who has been absolutely excellent, is coming off. A stunning performance from the midfielder

ON - Kevin Strootman
OFF - Frenkie de Jong
111' Dumfries has released Memphis with a superb ball and he's beaten the offside trap. With Wijnaldum busting a gut to get to the box, Memphis overhits the cross. 
108' Chilwell with an awful corner into the edge of the box, where Depay clears. 
108' England have a corner, after good play from Kane. That was strong defending from de Ligt. 
106' van de Beek sees yellow for an awfully rash challenge on Barkley
106' PEEEEPPP!! And we're back underway for the final 15 minutes (maybe) of the night
England have made their fourth and final change

ON - Dele Alli
OFF - Declan Rice
105' Half-time in extra time. The Dutch are 15 minutes away from a major tournament final
100' Blind's corner comes back out to Blind on the left, he beats Lingard, and then gets caught. Free-kick from an appealing position for the Dutch. 
99' What a save by Pickford! Blind's deep corner is headed across goal by De Ligt and Memphis has ghosted in with a powerful diving header, but Pickford has somehow parried it out for a corner. 
98' Promes once again on the attack, and he's teasing Henderson this time. The Liverpool captain stands tall, and concedes the corner. 
97' GOOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!!! QUINCY PROMES HAS PUT NETHERLANDS IN FRONT!

Stones dwells on it for too long, Memphis dispossesses him and Pickford comes up with a stunning save, and Promes has followed in, and it's gone in off Kyle Walker. It'll probably go down as a Walker own goal. 
95' Memphis's free-kick is on target, but Pickford is behind it and catches it easily
94' The Dutch now have a free-kick, after Frenkie de Jong is fouled by Stones
94' Memphis's corner is headed by van Dijk, but that's cleared off the line by Harry Kane
93' The Netherlands have a corner, after Stones comes up with an important intervention on a Dumfries cross, with van de Beek lurking. 
91' Netherlands have made their third change

ON - Davy Propper
OFF - Steven Bergwijn
91' PEEEPPP! We're underway
90+7' PEEEEPPP! That's full-time for now. We'll have 30 more minutes. 
90+6' Sterling from distance! He's turned Wijnaldum on the left flank, and unleashed a ferocious curler but that's gone over the bar. 
90+4' Memphis has slipped at the critical moment! Bergwijn does brilliantly to dispossess Maguire and then play a super cut-back for Memphis, but he slips as he makes contact, and the shot goes horribly wrong. 
90+3' Lovely run from Lingard, and a superb attempted curler, but there's not enough bend on it and that's gone wide. 
90+1' Seven minutes of added time at the end of this game. 30 minutes of extra time looms
90' Kane on the turn! Some scrappy play and it falls to Kane some 25 yards from goal, only to see it roll just wide of Cillessen's goal
86' A Dutch shout for a penalty at the other end, as Chilwell slides into block Dumfries's cross, and that's hit his back. It deflected through to Bergwijn, who scuffed his shot, when he had the goal at his mercy. 
83' GOOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!!!! JESSE LINGARD WITH A SUPERB ENGLAND GOAL! OH NO IT'S BEEN RULED OUT!! LINGARD WAS OFFSIDE.

It starts with Stones on the defensive byline, Chilwell finds Sterling with a lovely backheel to Barkley, who plays a super through ball to Lingard, who finishes off brilliantly, while one-on-one with Cillessen. He was offside though, correct decision
79' What a tackle Matthijs de Ligt! Lovely play between Lingard and Sterling, and he plays a through ball for Kane, who takes a shot which is blocked by a sliding de Ligt. Stunning stuff. 
78' Van de Beek's missed a big chance! Bergwijn's done brilliantly, and found Dumfries on the right flank. His low cross is deflected into the path of the Ajax man, and his left-footed volley has gone over PIckford's goal.
77' England make their final change, as they bring the Champions League winning captain on

ON - Jordan Henderson
OFF - Fabian Delph
73' GOOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!!! MATTHIJS DE LIGT MAKES AMENDS AND THE NETHERLANDS ARE LEVEL!

Superb delivery into the near post, and De Ligt has powered past Stones and belted a header past Pickford. 
72' Another Netherlands corner. Another probing spell of pressure fron the Netherlands. 
71' Promes from distance! He got venom on that shot, and got a deflection off STones, the Netherlands have a corner. 
69' Chilwell's free-kick is met by Stones, but his header is well wide. It looked like Kane got in Stones' way
68' DOUBLE CHANGE FOR THE NETHERLANDS

ON - Donny van de Beek and Quincy Promes
OFF - Ryan Babel and Maarten de Roon
66' De Ligt wins it high up the field, and the balls goes straight to Wijnaldum, who takes a shot straight into the arms of Pickford. 
62' The Dutch have another free-kick in a useful position. The battle between Chilwell and Dumfries continues, and it's the Englishman conceding the foul on this occasion. 
61' England make their second change

ON - Jesse Lingard
OFF - Jadon Sancho
60' Nice probing possession for the Netherlands. Lovely cross at the end of the move from De Roon, Delph clears behind for a corner. 
54' The Dutch are straight up the other end! Walker is dispossessed by Memphis, and he shoots from distance, when he had time to take a few more touches. His shot is hit well, but Pickford has saved, De Roon's shot on the rebound is easy for Pickford to deal with. 
54' SANCHO! He has got to score! That's a super cross from Delph on the left wing, and Sancho has ghosted in between the Dutch defenders, and has a free header, which he has planted straight into Cillessen, who catches it. 
51' Chilwell has definitely fouled Bergwijn just on the edge of the area but the referee has ignored Dutch claims for a free-kick and England have gotten away
50' De Roon fouls Barkley, and has a right go at the referee for blowing for the foul. England have a free-kick in a useful position here. 
49' Chilwell plays the ball over the top, trying to find Sterling and found him, but he was offside. 
48' Pretty much the same pattern of play as the game restarts. The Dutch are dominating the ball, but aren't making the right decisions in the final third. England firmly playing on the break. 
46' PEEEEEPPP!! And we're back underway, as Memphis gets the ball rolling.
Rashford has been taken off after an injury sustained in the first half. 
England are making a half-time substitution, and it's Harry Kane who is coming on!

ON - Harry Kane
OFF - Marcus Rashford
The players are back in the field in Guimaraes. We're ready for the second half to get underway. 
HALF-TIME: Netherlands 0-1 England

You could say the Netherlands have had the better of play thus far, but England have the moment that is the difference here. De Ligt had a horror moment, Rashford capitalised, won a penalty and dispatched it calmly. 

The Dutch have created a fair few chances, and are far from out of this. We'll be back in a bit with second half action. 
45+4' PEEEEEPPPP!!! THAT'S HALF-TIME!
45+4' That's a superb corner from Memphis, and De Ligt has put a free header wide. Really should have got that on target. 
45+3' Memphis and Babel combine to create a chance for Wijnaldum, who takes a snapshot, Stones has blocked it and the Dutch have a corner to end the half. 
45+1' There's two minutes of added time at the end of the first half. 
45' Chilwell looks fine
44' Dumfries is booked. That looked harsh, and looks like Chilwell has come off the worse. Both have gone up for the ball, have eyes only on the ball, and collide. Chilwell is knocked off balance, and endures a heavy landing. Danny Rose is already warming up, as Southgate wears a concerned look on the touchine. 
42' The free-kick is played to Maguire on the far-post, and he heads it down to Delph on the edge of the box, and he smashes it off the right foot, but that's straight at Cillessen and an easy catch for the Dutchman. 
41' Superb play from Barkley in his own half to get England out of pressure, and then he makes up ground to get on to Walker's pass. Barkley runs at the Dutch rearguard, and Wijnaldum has upended him to concede an England free-kick. 
37' That is a stunning tackle from Denzel Dumfries! Sancho beats De Ligt and slips Rashford in, in a heap of space. Dumfries is covering, and slides in brilliantly to deny Rashford a shooting opportunity Stunning from the Dutch right-back. 
35' Babel with a shot from waayyy out! But Pickford nearly makes a meal of it. Poor handling from the England 'keeper, who is lucky there was no venom on the shot. 
32' GOOOOOOAAAALLLLL!!! Rashford makes no mistake! Cool as you like. Cillessen has dived to his right, Rashford has calmly rolled it the other way. 
30' ENGLAND HAVE A PENALTY! De Ligt gives the ball away in the box and Rashford is onto it, and De Ligt has lunged in and fouled the England man. Clear penalty. De Ligt is booked. 
28' It's all been the Netherlands here. England have been awful in possession, and are giving the ball away far too easily. 
23' Superb play from Bergwijn down the right hand side. He's played a decent cross to Babel, who tries a cushioned header through to Memphis, but he's well-marshalled by Stones, and Pickford can come out and catch. 
21' Another shot on target for the Dutch. Lovely passing move, which started with De Roon turning Barkley in the middle of the park. He finds Depay on the left, and he cuts in before shooting, trying to beat Pickford at his near post. The England goalkeeper is not fooled at all, and he's caught it easily. 
18' A superb marauding forward run from Chilwell, and Dumfries is well beaten, and clatters the England full-back to the ground. It is an England free-kick, and the Dutch full-back is lucky to not be booked. 
14' Memphis Depay has played an absolutely dreadful pass, that could well be the worst we've seen in a long, long time. He is played the ball to his feet from deep. He brings it down superbly, and then looks to ping it cross field to Blind, but it's behind the left-back by about 40 metres. 
12' Big Dutch chance! Wijnaldum with some stunning play to win the ball in midfield and run straight at the England defence. He's got Depay on the left and plays it to him, but his first touch is awfully heavy, and Stones has an easy mop-up job. 
10' Walker dispossesses Babel high up the field and races straight at van Dijk. He tries to play Rashford through, but overhits that too much, and Cillessen comes out to grab. 
8' Maguire steps up with the ball into midfield and then gives it away with some sloppy play. Bergwijn has space and takes a shot, but his left footed effort lacks conviction, and is easily caught by Pickford
7' First sight of goal for the Dutch. Barkley's cross-field ball was intercepted by Babel, and played straight into the path of Depay, who cuts onto his left foot and blasts at goal, but Stones is there with a vital block. 
5' Superb pressing from Rashford, as he pressurises Cillessen after a De Ligt back pass. The Dutch 'keeper puts the ball out as he tries to find Blind on the left wing
4' Barkley's corner is superbly worked, and finds the feet of Maguire near the penalty spot, but Stones slightly got in his way, and Maguire's skied his shot hopelessly.
3' Super move from England, and Barkley plays a lovely through ball to Sancho on the left. His cross is above Sterling in the middle, and Blind has horribly mishit the clearance. England have an early corner. 
1' England tried to slip Rashford in very early, but there's van Dijk. Imperious as ever, with the interception. 
1' PEEEEEPPPPP!!! And we're off, as Rashford gets the ball rolling for England
England will kick us off
We've got a minute's silence to pay respect to Lennart Johansson, former UEFA President
Anthems sung, photos taken, now we've got Sterling and Van Dijk at the toss. 
Time for the anthems in Guimaraes
The teams are in the tunnel. Sterling and Van Dijk lead the lines as the teams wait to walk out at the Estadio D. Afonso Henriques
15 minutes away from kickoff in Guimaraes. A tried and tested, settled Netherlands lineup and a hugely changed England side. Which way are we leaning?
Koeman and Southgate have gone different ways. Van Dijk and Wijnaldum play just five days after the Champions League final, and that big parade in Liverpool. Southgate has chosen to bench all of Kane, Alli, Rose, Dier, Henderson, Alexander-Arnold and Gomez. 
In his 50th cap, RAHEEM STERLING CAPTAINS ENGLAND!

UEFA Nations League Semifinal Preview

Netherlands v England

With the club season now over and done with, 2018/19 is set to finish with the finals of UEFA’s newest international tournament – the UEFA Nations League.

The group stages of the tournament, which went down between September and November 2019, saw England, the Netherlands, Portugal and Switzerland qualify for this summer’s finals, with Portugal and Switzerland facing off on Wednesday, England and the Netherlands on Thursday with the winners meeting in Sunday’s final.

England are currently on somewhat of a hot streak; they’ve won their last 5 international fixtures, including Nations League victories over Spain and Croatia and Euro 2020 qualifying wins over the Czech Republic and Montenegro.

The Netherlands meanwhile qualified for the finals by impressively winning a group that included the last two World Cup winners – France and Germany – but they also lost to Joachim Low’s Germany side in a Euro 2020 qualifier in March.

All in all, this should be an entertaining game between two of Europe’s most exciting young sides
