Thank you very much for joining Eurosport tonight for this one. Please stay tuned to Eurosport from all the reaction on the ground from the excellent Marcus Foley.

120' 

And that's full-time!

The Netherlands are through to the final where they will face hosts Portugal. Ultimately they deserved it, plenty to chew over for Southgate and England.

114' 

GOAL! ENGLAND 1-3 NETHERLANDS (PROMES)

Now Promes gets his goal! England completely capitulate at the back as Promes robs Barkley in the box. The ball goes to Memphis and he slots it back to Promes to fire home. Game, set and match.

113' 

A change for the Dutch in midfield. Strootman comes on to give De Jong, who has been everywhere, a rest.

110' 

England are living dangerously here (as they have to to be fair). It's leaivng them exposed so there's chance for Holland on the break.

106' 

Change for England, Dele is on.

105' 

We're at half-time of extra-time and England have it all to do!

101' 

A low, driven free-kick is well-held by Pickford.

99'

BRILLIANT SAVE!

Stones is beaten in the air again and a loose header is somehow stopped by Pickford. Good stuff from the Everton keeper.

  • Kyle Walker
    Own-goalKyle WalkerEnglandGOAL! ENGLAND 1-2 NETHERLANDS (WALKER OG)  Oh dear England. Oh dear. Stones dawdles on the ball and Memphis pounces. Pickford makes an excellent save but Promes got to the loose ball and his effort goes in off Walker.  That was terrible.

GOAL! ENGLAND 1-2 NETHERLANDS (WALKER OG)

Oh dear England. Oh dear. Stones dawdles on the ball and Memphis pounces. Pickford makes an excellent save but Promes got to the loose ball and his effort goes in off Walker.

That was terrible.

95' 

Depay fires it in but Pickford holds well.

94' 

Dangerous free-kick for the Dutch after Stones takes out De Jong. Stones is pretty unhappy but it's hard to see why, it's clearly a free-kick.

91' 

Right here we go!

 

That's it! We're heading for extra-time

More to come here

90+4' 

CHANCE

That was it! Maguire gets robbed by Promes and he squares it to Depay, who then fires over. That was it, that was the chance.

90+1' 

Seven minutes of added time...

90' 

Kane takes a shot on the turn first time but he sends it narrowly wise.

We may be heading for more of this...

87' 

VAR sides with England. No penalty.

86' 

The Dutch are convinced they have a penalty. England think they're living in dreamworld. We wait for VAR...

85' 

VAR! GOAL DISALLOWED!

Hold your horses! It's been ruled out for Lingard being offside.

You've got to love VAR

83' 

GOAL! ENGLAND 2-1 NETHERLANDS (LINGARD)

What a move from England! A ruthless counter-attack sees some nice passing, a good backheel and then a brilliant pass from Barkley to release Lingard who slots home. They lead, for now...

78' 

CHANCE!

Momentum with the Netherlands now and Dumfries gets in behind the England defence. His cross is deflected into the air and it falls to Van de Beek and he volleys it over.

77' 

England respond, on comes Henderson.

75' 

Well that's made things very interesting. This game is now very finely balanced with around quarter of an hour to go.

Extra-time and penalties beckon if things stay as they are...

  • Matthijs de Ligt
    GoalMatthijs de LigtNetherlandsGOAL! ENGLAND 1-1 NETHERLANDS (DE LIGT) It's been coming and he has redeemed himself! Finally a corner comes in as De Ligt powers past Walker and Stones to slam a header past Pickford, brilliant header.

GOAL! ENGLAND 1-1 NETHERLANDS (DE LIGT)

It's been coming and he has redeemed himself! Finally a corner comes in as De Ligt powers past Walker and Stones to slam a header past Pickford, brilliant header.

72' 

The Dutch keep pushing, they have another corner...

And it's headed clear by Walker.

70' 

That's a proper striker's challenge that. Kane comes through the back of Blind but nothing comes of it.

68' 

The Dutch are trying to change things up here, and god knows they need it things aren't going particularly well for anyone concerned. Promes and Van de Beek on for Babel and De Roon.

65' 

Things summed up for the Dutch as a shot is blocked by one of their own players.

61' 

The Dutch win a corner, a rare positive moment, but they then give it away immediately by giving away a foul.

And we have a chance Lingard on for Sancho.

58' 

Good spell of possession for the Dutch as they try and slow the pace down a little bit. They need to find some inspiration in the next half an hour or so.

54' 

CHANCES

England have the chance to seal the game as a Sancho header goes straight at Cillessen and then at the other end Memphis gets a loose ball and forces a save from PIckford.

52' 

Another England move has broken down but my word that was a sensational touch from Sancho in the build-up, plucking the ball out of the air.

51' 

More set-piece wizardry from England as they nearly get another clear chance at Cillessen's goal. They've started the better of the two teams after the break.

49' 

A great ball over the top from Chilwell finds Sterling but his ball across is put behind by Cillessen.

48' 

We appear to have picked up in much the same vein as before, a lot of sloppy passes going nowhere near their targets.

46' 

Welcome back!

We're back underway and there is a change. Kane is on for the injured Rashford.

45' 

And that's the half. It's not been great in all honesty but England are the ones with their noses in front.

45+4' 

CHANCE

Stones misjudges the flight of a ball from a corner and he lets De Ligt run free, however the Ajax man heads wide.

45+1' 

Unsurprisingly Chilwell says he's okay to go. The England physio team are taking their time with him. It looks as if he is going to carry on for now. But there are only seconds to go in this half.

45' 

Chilwell is down and this doesn't look too good. Rose is being readied.

44' 

Well Dumfries is finally in the book as he clatters into Chilwell. It's been a long time coming...

42' 

One of those clever set-piece routines results in a shot from Delph that Cillessen gathers.

He launches a counter-attack and then Pickford comes out late and cleans out both Memphis and his own team.

37' 

My word what a tackle that is. A brilliant move from Sancho sees him play a fantastic pass through to Rashford. He looks set to pull the trigger but Dumfries comes sliding in and makes a fantastic tackle. Rashford bears the brunt of the tackle having seen his leg clatter into Dumfries'

35' 

Babel gets bored and takes a go from range. Pickford spills but nothing comes of it.

33' 

Well that's certainly woken the crowd up.

A fair amount of head-scratching for Koeman you'd imagine.

  • Marcus Rashford

PENALTY ENGLAND!

Oh De Digt that's not great...

He completely loses the ball and then hacks Rashford down in the box. Not ideal...

27' 

If you want a summation of how things are going England had a free-kick inside their half and Maguire just launched it out for a goal-kick.

25' 

Another example of the final bit of quality lacking as a period of play sees the Netherlands fail to make the final key pass yet England lose it just as quickly as they get it back.

22' 

Slight shout for handball against Van Dijk but any debates about that are quickly put to bed as it is called back for offside.

19' 

It looks as if we might have a yellow card as Dumfries charges into Chilwell to stop a counter-attack. Howevre our referee Mr Turpin decides it is just a foul.

17' 

Couple of half, or even quarter chances for the Dutch but they're struggling to get the final pass away at the moment.

14' 

Not the greatest moment from Memphis as he brings a ball down out of the air and then just hammers the ball out of player as he mis-cues a pass. Before that Barkley had the chance to release Sancho but he couldn't get the pass away.

12' 

GREAT CHANCE for the Dutch but they really mess up a two-on-one scenario. A mis-communication from Rice and Chilwell leads to Wijnaldum bursting forward with Memphis in support. However his pass is not collected well by the Lyon striker and it all breaks down.

10' 

Walker leads an England break but his pass is just too strong for Rashford to get on to.

8'

More slack defending from England as Bergwijn picks up the ball and waltzes towards goal.England back off and Bergwijn's shot is comfortably saved by PIckford but they need to get out to him quicker.

7' 

But when it works that can happen! A poor pass from Barkley is lost by Walker and it results in an effort from outside the box from Memphis. His shot is blocked but that's a warning sign.

6' 

The Dutch plan seems to be sit tight and try to catch England on the break or press them into mistakes in their own half. It's not the worst plan in the world but at times they have four players pressing the England defence which is risky.

4' 

From the resulting corner England, so strong at set-pieces at the World Cup, create an opening for Harry Maguire but he fires over.

3' 

The Dutch nearly get a couple of attacks away before Dumfries gets caught out by Sancho. His delightful chip is ultimately put behind but it did cause problems.

1' 

Judging by the noise in the stadium it is an English-leaning crowd tonight...

 

Right a minute's silence and national anthems are done and we're underway with Rashford getting us underway.

 

My word the heavens have just opened and it's pouring down now.

 

Right we're five minutes from kick-off. Who are you backing?

 

And finally before we get underway here is another plug from Mr Foley for his piece on Gareth Southgate and his work in developing the relationship between team and fans.

 

They have some fine players the Dutch and we already know that Frenkie De Jong will move to Barcelona for next season.

However the destination of club team-mate Matthijs de Ligt is far more up in the air. Do you know anything Ronald?

THE DUTCH CONNECTION

Right what about the Dutch though?

Of course they weren't at the 2018 World Cup but they've undergone a revolution of their own a bit under Koeman.

Here's David Winner to guide you through their renaissance.

 

Our man on the ground in Portugal is Marcus Foley and he has been working incredibly hard. Here is his interview with Kevin Miles, CEO of The Football Supporters' Federation.

HOWEVER...

All has not been well on the ground, as is now to be expected with England away the idiotic few have reared their unwelcome heads and been the subject of many an unpleasant scene. It's not anything anyone wants to see and it's a real disgrace to be perfectly honest

 

THE RISE OF RAHEEM

It's a night to remember for Raheem Sterling as he captains the side. Sterling has rapidly become one of the most important players in Southgate's England set-up and the armband is a just reward for his fine work both on and off the pitch over the past 18 months.

In this video we chronicle the Manchester City forward's journey.

NETHERLANDS TEAM

Right here is the Dutch team for you, no qualms for Ronald Koeman in selecting Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum in his starting XI.

Likes of Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt in the team as well as Steven Bergwijn.

 

ENGLAND TEAM

Let's start with the World Cup semi-finalists and the major talking point is that manager Gareth Southgate does indeed elect to leave his Champions League participants on the bench.

It means Raheem Sterling captains the side on his 50th cap, as expected. He is joined in a very exciting looking attack alongside Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford.

 

WELCOME

Good evening and a warm welcome to you to Guimaraes for tonight's match.

It's the Nations League semi-final clash between England and the Netherlands. Team news is coming right up for you.
