A dramatic victory over the Netherlands seals England a place in the Euro 2024 final.

The Three Lions booked their place in the Euro 2024 final with a dramatic, last gasp winner from Aston Villa star, Ollie Watkins.

The forward drove home the decisive goal on the stroke of the ninety, finishing a neat pass from fellow substitute, Cole Palmer, to see off a spirited Dutch outfit.

Xavi Simons struck the Netherlands ahead inside the opening ten minutes of the affair, pinching possession from Declan Rice, and unleashing a ferocious effort through the grasp of Jordan Pickford.

A contentious penalty decision handed a far superior England a lifeline, Harry Kane up to the task and on hand to dispatch the leveller.

Going down to the wire in a tight second period, Gareth Southgate’s double substitution paved the way for late dramatics, Cole Palmer freeing Ollie Watkins for a devastating drive into the far bottom corner.

The Three Lions now face their second successive final in the European Championships – last losing on penalties to Italy in 2021 – Spain the opposition in a star-studded affair on Sunday evening.

From our atmospheric teepee to the newly redesigned Steelmen’s Bar, there’s no place better than Green Lane to watch all the action.

Open until late, with children more than welcome, join us on the Redcar seafront from 5pm this Sunday. Admission is free, with our bar stocked and open, and hot food on offer too.

Come on the Three Lions!
