PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

And that's that from the Amsterdam Arena in Netherlands. England walked past a limping Netherlands side. They looked good in defence and will come away as the better unit in the midfield. At the end of the day, there are plenty of positives for England to take away, all made to look better thanks to that signature Jesse Lingard strike from outside the box.

That's that from the yap centre. Stay with them eyes open 'cause yours truly will be delivering his 5 talking points from this game in a few.

See you soon, lads.

Ciao.
...
92' Memphis and Van Aanholt try to combine on the left flank and they pull it off and the latter whips one in for Dost to attack but the tall, lanky fella is flagged offside. 
...
90' Depay plays a driven, delightful ball into the box and he finds De Ligt but the Ajax man is caught offside. Marginally. Depay has been good tonight, he has really looked like the man who could inspire this Netherlands team to level the scoreline.
...
89' Substitutions for Netherlands.

Weghort and Van De Beek on for De Vrij and Strootman.
...
88' Substitution for England.

Harry Maguire off. Eric Dier on.
...
88' Memphis and Van Aanholt play a quick one-two on the left side of the box but the latter's shot is wayward and it runs out for a throw-in. Not a corner. A throw-in. Yes.
...
86' England should see this one out and pick up a well deserved victory here.
...
84' Memphis Depay once again with the industry and the enterprise. He finds Hateboer inside the area but his shot is blocked on its way to Pickford who picks it up with ease.
...
82' Dele Alli tries to whip one into the area from the left side of the box but Welbeck can't get to it but he traps in and drags it back for Tripper who lets one rip and forces a save out of Zoet. Good, positive stuff from the youngster there.
...
82' Depay goes for goal and it's a good effort but Pickford was always watching and it is played straight into his hands. Good handling from the England goalkeeper there.
...
81' Reckless challenge from Stones on Babel as he absolutely rams into him from behind right outside the area. Netherlands have a freekick 25 yards out. Van Aanhold and Memphis Depay are standing over the ball.
...
78' Van Aanhold is flagged offside as Gini tries to release him on the left side of the box. 
...
77' The game has once again slipped into a phase of sloppiness and dullness and...
...
75' Chamberlain tries to play an audacious ball to Alli but the latter couldn't take it in his stride and that chance goes abegging.
...
73' Dele Alli wins a freekick for England inside their attacking half.
...
71' Memphis Depay gets outnumbered in the centre of the pitch but Chamberlain is penalized and Netherlands can go again. Memphis Depay is raring to make a point here! He controls an awkward ball and almost snatches at it with a sortof bicyclish kick which is easy to pick up for Pickford but still, points for trying, Memphis.
...
70' Substitution for England.

Danny Rose off. Ashley Young on.
...
68' England looks more 3-5-2 now with Vardy and Welbeck up top.
...
67' Substitutions for England.

Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Raheem Sterling off. Dele Alli, Jamie Vardy and Danny Welbeck on.

JLingz is greeted by a wide Gareth Southgate smile.

...
66' De Ligt goes for goal from 30 yards out and it was always, always going wide.
...
66' Netherlands looking much better going forward now and they're creating better chances. 
...
Substitutions for Netherlands.

Bas Dost off, Quincy Promes off.

Ryan Babel on, Davy Propper on.
...
64' Dost receives a long ball on the edge of the area and he heads it down for Gini to have a blast but his shot is blocked.
...
63' Maguire bravely surges ahead and frees up Sterling on the left side. He drags it back for Rashford who tries to get a shot away but it is blocked and Netherlands break on the counter but even that comes to nothing as Stones intervenes inside the box.
...
62' Space for Depay on the right side. He cuts it back for Wijnaldum who can't get some power behind it and Dost tries to flick it on the way and he can't get it past Pickford. In the end, it was way easier than Pickford would have thought it would end up being.
