Ollie Watkins showed great composure in the 18-yard-box after Chelsea’s Cole Palmer displayed a great vision to set him up.

Watkins’ shot ended at the bottom left corner of Verbruggen sparking crazy celebrations from the Tree Lions fans. England won 2-1 in an emphatic fashion booking their place in the finals.

Ollie Watkins earned a huge praise from many people with his fantastic finish including a sumptuous message from King Charles lll.

“My wife and I join all our family in wishing you the warmest congratulations on reaching the final of the Uefa European Championship – and in sending our very best wishes for Sunday’s match.

“If I may encourage you to secure victory before the need for any last minute wonder-goals or another penalties drama, I am sure the stresses on the nation’s collective heart rate and blood pressure would be greatly alleviated!

“Good luck, England,” King Charles lll added.

Thats how beautiful life can be for you when you deliver at the top level of world football.

Netherlands got off to a great start with Xavi Simone producing a moment of magic. The youngster scored a spectactular goal by striking the ball into the left corner of the English post to give the Orange the lead.

Denzel Dumfries fouled Harry Kane in the Netherlands’ eighteen-yard box with German referee Zwayer awarding penalty to England after consultating VAR.

King Kane stepped up and levelled the score for England in the 18th minute.

Phil Foden and Dumfries both came closer to scoring for England and Netherlands respectively but hit the woodwork.

In the second half, England was a bit ahead of Netherlands in terms of controlling the game with both sides finding it difficult to creat clear goal scoring opportunities.

Substitute Cole Palmer beautifully assisted Ollie Watkins to score the winner for England in the 91st minute.

After a series of poor displays prior to the the semi-finals, England have found their rythm and at the right time. They are just left with a any kind of win to lift a first major trophy since 1966.

The Three Lions will face the sensational Spain on Sunday at the Berlin Olympiastadion at 7 pm.
