19-year-old Ajax Captain, Matthjis De Ligt redeemed his early error, leaping high above John Stones at the near-post and guiding his header past Jordan Pickford.

John Stones pulled off an insane error in extra-time, gifting the ball to Memphis Depay on who finds in turn feeds Quincy Promes in the box, the ball came of the heel of Kyle Walker and into the net for the second goal to the Netherlands.

A night of errors for the three lions saw Ross Barkley give away possession to Depay who then finds Promes again and this time Promes finishes cleanly to secure a 3-1 victory for Netherlands.
