Good night Lionesses

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

England
PA

Tournament football, eh? Who'd be an England fan?

After a brilliant winning run through the group stages and a historic first victory over France for 43 years, the Lionesses' dream of lifting their first major trophy is over for another tournament.

The Netherlands go through to meet Denmark in Sunday's final.

Thanks for your company. It's good night from me, and good night for England.

Van de Sanden on 'amazing' win

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

The Netherlands and Liverpool winger Shanice van den Sanden adds: "England has a really good squad, and we won - that's amazing. I'm really proud of all these people and the girls.

"Today was not my game, but hopefully I'll play better in the final. As long as you win it's OK however you play."

An unlikely final?

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

So the Netherlands will face Denmark in the final in Enschede on Sunday, from 16:00 BST.

That's after the Danes beat Austria on penalties earlier this evening, plus the hosts' 3-0 win over England.

Did anyone honestly predict that line-up for the final three weeks ago? Not me, that's for sure.

The five highest-ranked European sides in the Fifa Women's World rankings are all out.

'I made some mistakes'

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

England head coach Mark Sampson continues: "Over the course of the tournament, we have been one of the of best teams here. But, in tournament football, small things can make a big difference.

"I made some mistakes, for sure. I'll go away and reflect. I'll look at it all and then do a better job next time."

'The pictures speak a thousand words'

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

On the decision not to award England a penalty for a challenge on Lucy Bronze in the second half, head coach Mark Sampson adds: "It's difficult to see from the side, but the pictures speak a thousand words, don't they? There is contact in the box (on Lucy Bronze).

"We didn't get the decisions. But I'm incredibly proud of the players tonight.

"They've worked so, so hard over the past year."

Sampson 'incredibly proud'

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

England head coach Mark Sampson tells Channel Four: "We're obviously devastated but I'm incredibly proud of the players.

"Sometimes you don't get the rub of the green. The performance and the attitude was there."

Dutch look towards the final

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

The Netherlands and Liverpool winger Shanice van de Sanden speaking on Channel Four: "I cannot tell you how good this feels.

"We were confident. We had a 12th man in the stands.

"It will be a really big day (Sunday's final) but now we need to have focus."

'Important for Dutch football'

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

Jonathan Pearce

BBC Radio 5 live commentator in Enschede

This is important for Dutch football, not just Dutch women’s football. They don’t have a team in the Champions League as it stands, they are in danger of missing next summer’s World Cup in Russia, they are down in the dumps.

#bbcfootball

Frank McMorrow: Lack of quality in passing and possession tonight. Predictable long ball easily dealt with. Poor finishing as well.

Elliott Gilmore: Did better than the men on about 1% of the wage. Pride in the shirts but ran out of steam and ideas.

Alex Withington: Good tournament but could (should) have been much more. I don't think Sampson's arrogance before France helped the mindset.

'Things didn't fall our way'

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

England's top scorer at the Euros, Jodie Taylor, tells Channel Four: "It just wasn't our night. I don't think things went our way. They're a good team. It's disappointing but things didn't fall our way tonight.

"It wasn't meant to be. I think there were a couple that might have been penalties. A couple of calls didn't go out way tonight, but credit to Holland.

"I'm proud of every single one of us tonight. We gave it everything."

'Gutted for Fara'

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

Rachel Brown-Finnis

Ex-England goalkeeper on BBC Radio 5 live

I was gutted for Fara Williams. She read the situation, was being composed in heading the ball back but miscued it. It is possibly her last tournament.

Fara Williams - who was involved in a mix-up that contributed to the Netherlands' second goal - won her 165th senior England cap tonight, extending her own appearances record.

'Let's win the World Cup'

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

BBC Radio 5 live

England striker Fran Kirby on 5 live: "They had a gameplan and did it well and took their chances, credit to them. We had chances and could have had a few penalties. We are bitterly disappointed.

"We did great to get this far. We have put so much hard work in but fall short. In the team huddle we said let's go and win the World Cup in France."

England go out of Euro 2017

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

Jonathan Pearce

BBC Radio 5 live commentator in Enschede

I don’t think the Dutch were three goals better. England will look at the penalty decision in the first half, they had two cleared off the line. They had chances but overall they did not pass the ball well enough to deserve a place in the final, the Dutch did. Danielle van de Donk was the outstanding player on the night. They had outstanding performers and have been so good throughout the tournament.

Netherlands' players celebrate

The Netherlands are deserved winners tonight. They have been explosive at times, played to their strengths. England were not allowed to get going.

England were favourites but they were negated. Jodie Taylor was very isolated and England just couldn't generate any momentum.

England go out of Euro 2017

FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

England players
PA

England look utterly devastated as they shake hands. They gave it everything, but were just second best tonight.

Meanwhile, the hosts are having a party. The Netherlands have reached a final in only their fourth ever major women's international tournament. Not bad.

FULL-TIME

Netherlands 3-0 England

England are out of Euro 2017. The Netherlands go through to the final, to face Denmark.

GOAL - Netherlands 3-0 England

Millie Bright OG

That's harsh on England, and harsh on Millie Bright. She inadvertently diverts Lieke Martens' effort in at the near post, after England had committed players forward in the final seconds.

The Netherlands all race on to the field to celebrate, including the subs. They're through with a late, late third goal.

SUBSTITUTION (Netherlands)

Netherlands 2-0 England

Arsenal's Dutch goal scorer goes off to a rousing reception. Jill Roord comes on.

The hosts are heading to the final.

Netherlands 2-0 England

Fran Kirby shoots just over for England, and that may well be their last half-chance.

Netherlands 2-0 England

In to the final minute of the 90 we go, and England's dreams of Euro 2017 glory are fading away.

It hasn't been their night tonight. The Dutch have been more clinical, more decisive.

Just two minutes are added on.

SUBSTITUTION (Netherlands)

Netherlands 2-0 England

Renate Jansen is on for the hosts, in place of Liverpool's Shanice van de Sanden. Time is almost up.

Off the line!

Netherlands 2-0 England

Sherida Spitse clears Toni Duggan's low shot off the line for the hosts, from England's resulting corner.

England are throwing all they can at the Dutch goal now, but is it too little, too late?

CLOSE!

England go close through Ellen White, with a powerful strike, but Sari van Veenendaal palms it wide for a corner.

'England have not used the ball'

Rachel Brown-Finnis

Ex-England goalkeeper on BBC Radio 5 live

England, in possession, have not used the ball. They have given it away far too easily. They haven't utilised the ball. When the Netherlands have had the ball they have had a purpose to every pass.

Netherlands 2-0 England

The Netherlands are ranked 12th in the Fifa women's rankings, while England are fifth. This is an upset, make no mistake about it. The Dutch are closing in on their first ever major final.

Netherlands 2-0 England

England's corner comes to nothing as it's well claimed by Sari van Veenendaal in the air.

Moments later, the hosts win a corner of their own, and they'll look to wind down the clock in the far corner.

Netherlands 2-0 England

Time is absolutely running out for England.

Has Mark Sampson got it right tactically tonight?

CLOSE!

Netherlands 2-0 England

England's Jodie Taylor has a great chance to score, but her close-range effort goes straight at the keeper, and her rebounded poke is blocked wide. Corner.

'A dark night'

Netherlands 2-0 England

Jonathan Pearce

BBC Radio 5 live commentator in Enschede

It's a dark night in the east Netherlands. England are 10 minutes away from going home.

Netherlands 2-0 England

It was at the semi-final stage when England's bid for World Cup glory under head coach Mark Sampson ended in 2015.

They have 10 minutes left to avoid going out at the same stage this time too.

Netherlands 2-0 England

It's not exactly a cold night in the Netherlands, but at least one person is wearing a coat.

Such was his dismay at the referee's decision not to give England a penalty before the break, head coach Mark Sampson ripped his own shirt in his protests at the time.

Since then, he's had his coat zipped up all the way to the top, to keep the tear hidden.

Netherlands 2-0 England

England have a free-kick in a dangerous position, but captain Steph Houghton curls it over the wall and over the bar too. That wasn't her best effort.

England just need to keep their composure, they must not panic. They still have 15 minutes.

SUBSTITUTION (England)

Netherlands 2-0 England

England bring on Chelsea winger Karen Carney for central midfielder Jade Moore.

There are now A LOT of attacking players on the field for the Lionesses.

Mark Sampson knows time is running out.

Netherlands 2-0 England

Around 15 minutes to go, then. England are heading out at the semi-final stage, barring a dramatic late comeback.

Netherlands 2-0 England

Lucy Bronze
PA

Lucy Bronze goes over in the area. The Dutch are accusing her of falling down too easily.

But you could say there was very sufficient contact - and none made with the ball whatsoever. Can England feel a tad aggrieved there?

Not many complaints to the referee from the Lionesses though. And, in fact, the replays show Bronze did jump, so to speak..

England need a goal, urgently.
