Football: Unexpected drama as Netherlands beats England in the 95th minute

Football: Unexpected drama as Netherlands beats England in the 95th minute

There were heartbreaking images from Glasgow while there was great joy in Tilburg.

– I'm collapsed. “We did everything we could to put pressure on the pitch, but it wasn't meant to go our way,” Beth Mead tells Sky Sports.

When Damaris Egurrola scored to make it 3-0 for the Netherlands in the 91st minute, England were 5-0 ahead of Scotland.

Lucy Bronze then led England 6-0 in the 93rd minute and England were leading the group even if they did not dare to shout the great victory chant.

The match in Glasgow ended two minutes before the Netherlands match. The English players stood gathered in the middle circle and stared at the phones of the leaders.

In the 95th minute, Damaris Egurrola scored with a header to lead the Netherlands 4-0, his second goal in extra time, which sparked despair among the English players. The entire Dutch bench rushed onto the pitch to celebrate.

“Ridiculous superiority”

Already at half-time, England led 4-0 at Hampden Park.

– It's a ridiculous advantage, as the BBC reported from the match. But then things stopped a lot, and the attacking game stopped despite six goals in total.

In the quarter-finals there are two or three places to reach the Olympic Games in Paris. It depends on France's results.

In the first match at home, England won narrowly 2-1, and expected a difficult match in Glasgow.

– If you know the history surrounding Scotland-England, you know there's no chance of that, said Sarina Wegman, captain of the England national team, ahead of tonight's match.
