Don't reckon that was a penalty, but will accept the referee's decision.

High and late on Harry, stonewall penalty. Should’ve been sent off too, disgraceful refereeing. Must have taken a bung.

Stonewall. Would be given as a free kick everywhere else on the pitch. High boot studs first.

Got lucky with the penalty, only reason I can see why it was given was for studs up but they had to be challenging for the ball at that height. We really ought to go on and win this, they are giving us the midfield and funnelling back to their own goal. Then they try to win our balls into the box and counter attack. I'm not very impressed with the Netherlands.

Never in doubt, still unbeaten.

As above.

Southgate is a tactical genius. Watkins, what a sub!

Since the turn of the century we have played the Netherlands 9 times and won 1.

Surely you mean twice 😁

That was a massive improvement, particularly in the first half. Saka had them on toast one side, as did Trippier the other, (when he didnt stray offside). Bellingham, Foden, and Mainoo found loads of room down the middle. First thought was that it was a harsh penalty, but it would have been a foul anywhere else on the pitch, so probably correct.
How Watkins was MOM ahead of Foden was beyond me. Watkins only touched the ball a few times.
Overall, the Dutch were not that good, and Spain will be a completely different ball game. The way that they keep the ball, they will have Kane and Bellingham chasing shadows, and run them into the ground. I do expect Kane to be subbed again. I do expect Spain to be too strong for us, but will be a very happy bunny to be proven wrong.
My flag stays up for a few more days.

Spain are clearly the best team in the competition but historically we have had the better of them with 13 wins, 4 draws and 10 defeats. since the turn of the century only 9 games with 4 wins each.

I see Kane was our lowest rated player and he has had a poor tournament. Once again Saka gets to the byline cuts the ball back into the area and Kane is not even close, this happened several times in the previous game but I expect he will be selected again for the final. It is no good saying "but he scored the penalty" as Super Sam has a better penalty conversion rate than Kane but he is not in the team. As was shown in the previous game we have plenty of players capable of scoring from the spot and each of those 5 were better penalties than Kanes.

We have to be on top of our game and hope Spain are a bit below par if we are going to come out on top.

Numbers mean nothing. For instance in this tournament so far, Spain have 6 outright wins, and we have 3 outright wins, three draws (one penalties victory).
Its about what happens on the night, not what happened in the past.

True, how many times had we beaten The Netherlands prior to last night?

Will we be seeing 'Sir Gareth' after the weekend? Kids of today probably think England are always this successful in tournament football.
I wonder how many were shouting for Toney to come on ahead of Watkins? Even now the 5 Live phone ins have people calling for Kane to be dropped for Watkins/Toney in the final!!  Grin Some guy saying we were really lucky and it would have been a disastrous tournament if Bellingham hadn't scored at the death, isn't that football?!

Spain are good but they don't have the same quality of players they had a few years back, although arguably more effective with a more direct style.
Let's hope we make a really good fist of it and go one better this time.

Really looking forward to Sunday and would desperately love England to do it despite saying for years. "We'll never win another major competition in my lifetime". But here's one for you;
If you had to choose, on pain of death, between Cobblers staying up next season or England winning on Sunday, which would it be? Probably not the most popular choice, but Cobblers for
me, club before country every time. Shocked
