  1. Good night Lionesses

    FT: Netherlands 3-0 England


    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.

  2. 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."

  3. 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.

  4. '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."

  5. '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."

  6. 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."

  7. 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."

  8. '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.

  9. Get Involved


    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.

  10. '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."

  11. '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.

  12. '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."

  13. 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.

    England's Ellen White
  14. Get Involved


    Anthony Phillips: Well that was a typical England tournament performance when in matters the most.

    Katherine Nickols: proud to be a fan and tonight is no exception. 17 shots, 0 goals - not our night.

    Jordan Tovey: Hats off to all of the @Lionesses! You've done the country proud!

  15. England go out of Euro 2017

    FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

    Rachel Brown-Finnis

    Ex-England goalkeeper on BBC Radio 5 live

    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.

  16. England go out of Euro 2017

    FT: Netherlands 3-0 England

    England players

    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.


    Netherlands 3-0 England

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

    Netherlands' Sherida Spitse
  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Post update

    Netherlands 2-0 England

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