Euro 2024: England move on to semi-finals after shootout drama – live

Estimated read time 1 min read

Netherlands won 3-1 in extra-time. England’s starting line-up that day?

Pickford, Walker, Stones, Maguire, Chilwell, Rice, Delph, Barkley, Sancho, Rashford, Sterling (c).

England were on their way home – just like it was against Slovakia – until Bukayo Saka decided enough was enough. Cue the most unEnglish display in a penalty shootout: they were ice-cold.

The real entertainment, though, was in that humdinger between the Netherlands and Turkey, with end-to-end attacks, terrific last-ditch blocks from the eventual victors, and a particularly electric display from Cody Gakpo. The Dutch are going to cause England some serious problems.

I’m here all day so drop me a line with your thoughts, queries, pleas to Gareth, semi-final plans, whatever you fancy. Cheers!
