Netherlands 3 – 1 England Football Highlights

(UEFA Nations League) 
Venue : Estadio D. Alfonso Henriques
Date : 6th June, 2019

Kyle Walker's Own Goal - Netherlands Vs England
Key Moments Recap :
Goal : 32′ 0 – 1 (pen.) Marcus Rashford

There’s a long wait and a long run-up, but it is coolness personified from Rashford as he sends Cillessen the wrong way.
England are ahead in the Nations League semi-finals
Goal : 73′ Matthijs de Ligt 1 – 1
You can’t say that hasn’t been coming and De Ligt makes up for his earlier mistake with the equaliser! 
The corner is delivered by Depay and De Ligt gets above Stones and Walker to emphatically head the ball home.
Game on! We will have extra time and penalties with a draw at 90 minutes. 
VAR Rules Out Lingard’s Goal
Lingard has the ball in the net but it’s going to VAR… It’s disallowed for offside!
The Man Utd man is just – JUST – ahead of the defenders and after a few minutes of deliberation, the goal is disallowed.
From ecstacy to agony for England fans and we are back to 1-1.
Goal : 97′ Kyle Walker 2 – 1
Oh no… It’s poor from Stones and a hammer blow for England.
Stones is being closed down by Depay over on the right and rather than play it back neatly to his goalkeeper, he tries to find another outfield player and Depay catches him out to run on goal.
His shot is wonderfully saved by Pickford, but Promes comes driving in along with Walker. Promes’ effort looks to be going wide but it takes a deflection off Walker’s heel to send it goalwards, giving the defender the unwanted own goal plaudits.

Goal : 114′ Quincy Promes 3 – 1
It’s another England error and another Netherlands goal.
Barkley’s woeful pass, intended for Pickford, is latched on to by Depay. He drags the goalkeeper out from his line before cutting the ball back for Promes who scores into an empty net.
England have fallen apart in extra time.

Man Of The Match : 


  • England have lost three of their last four international matches against the Netherlands (W1 D0 L3).
  • England conceded three goals in a competitive international match for the first time since losing 4-1 to Germany at the 2010 World Cup.
  • Netherlands have only lost two of their last 15 international matches against England (W6 D7 L2) and lost just one of their six competitive games against the Three Lions (W3 D2 L1).
  • Two of England’s last three defeats when leading at half-time have been against the Netherlands (also March 2016) – the other was against Croatia in the World Cup semi-final.
  • Marcus Rashford has scored four goals in his last seven international appearances for England – one more than in his first 25 games for England (3).
  • Raheem Sterling became the third youngest player to reach 50 caps for England (24y 180d), behind only Wayne Rooney in 2009 (23y 159d) and Michael Owen in 2003 (23y 179d).
  • Matthijs de Ligt has scored in each of his last two international appearances for the Netherlands, having scored none in his first 14 beforehand.
  • England have scored with 20 of their last 21 penalties (excluding shootouts), with only Harry Kane failing in that time against Turkey in May 2016.
  • Kyle Walker became the first England player to score an own goal in an international match since Eric Dier in May 2016 against Australia.
  • Tonight was Gareth Southgate’s 34th game in charge of England and his 10th starting XI with an average age of under 25 – the previous 17 managers to take charge of England did this just 10 times in 595 matches combined.
  • Memphis Depay has been involved in 23 goals in his last 21 international matches for the Netherlands (13 goals, 10 assists).

England and Netherlands will battle for the final spot of the UEFA Nations League final at the Estadio D. Alfonso Henriques to set up a tie with the hosts Portugal, who defeated Switzerland 3 – 1, few hours ago. 

Gareth Southgate has in the past impressed with his selections, which has during the qualification earned the Three Lions victories over Spain and Croatia. However, seven of his key players were Involved in the Champions League Final. 

Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose and Eric Dier could still be left with psychological issues following the defeat, while Jordan Henderson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez will be fine. 

Netherlands will also have those issues, as key players Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum also got involved in the final, which will also play a key role in the selection. 

However, Roland Koeman will have a huge squad lift with youngsters Frenkie De Jong, Matthijs De Ligt and Donny van de Beek  who played a key role Ajax’s run to the Champions League semi-finals and PSV’s Steven Bergwijn.
