Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    It's all over and Ben Brereton's late close-range goal has given England a second win in as many Group B games. Keith Downing's side held the initiative for much of the game, and finally forced the breakthrough with time running out to make it six points from six.
  • Substitution
    90
    Da Silva (in) - Buckley-Ricketts (out) (England)
    Another change for England, as they look to run down the clock...
  • Substitution
    85
    Kongolo (in) - Koopmeiners (out) (Netherlands)
  • Goal
    84
    Brereton (England) scores!
    We have a breakthrough! Ryan Sessegnon cuts in from the right and his thunderous low left-foot shot takes a couple of deflections with the substitute Brereton in the right place to force in the loose ball!
  • Substitution

    Edwards (in) - Mount (out) (England)
    The Tottenham midfielder has been waiting for almost five minutes on the touchline - here's his moment, can he make it count?
