DORTMUND: England will face Spain in the Euro 2024 final after substitute Ollie Watkins snatched the Three Lions a late 2-1 win against the Netherlands in Dortmund on Wednesday.

Xavi Simons slammed the Dutch ahead after seven minutes but England captain Harry Kane soon levelled the semi-final from the spot after going down under a Denzel Dumfries challenge.

With the match heading for extra time, Watkins struck in the 91st minute with a fine turn and low finish after being played in by Cole Palmer.
