Xavi Simons had given the Dutch the lead with a sublime strike in the 7th minute.

Harry Kane levelled the match from the spot 11 minutes later, setting up Watkins for his heroic moment.

As Watkins, 28, scored the winner the Three Lions bench erupted into celebration.

This included coach Hasselbaink when ran up to celebrate with Gareth Southgate.

However, Hasselbaink, 52, smile quickly faded after realising he was celebrating a goal against his native side.

The moment was caught on camera and fans could not help but find it amusing.

One fan posted: “Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink remembering he’s Dutch midway through the celebrations.”

A second wrote: “It’s hilarious to me that Hasselbaink didn’t know how to react when England scored the last-minute goal against his native country.”


A third commented: “JFH going… yes !!! No !! Yes !! Oh s**t.”

A fourth said: “Hasselbaink wants to celebrate but then realises he can’t!”

England’s controversial penalty

By Mark Halsey

HARRY KANE was gifted a penalty by controversial referee Felix Zwayer.

If England had been on the receiving end of that decision, we would have been absolutely fuming.

The German official, previously banned for six months for his part in a match-fixing scandal, should not have been sent to the pitchside monitor by VAR Bastian Dankert.

Both Denzel Dumfries and Kane had their feet in the air as England’s captain got his shot away.

It was just a clash of legs and certainly NOT a ‘clear and obvious error’.
Once Zwayer went over to the monitor, we knew what was going to happen.

He is an excellent referee but we have seen that none of the officials seem mentally tough enough to stick with their original call.

I know some people will argue Dumfries was late to the tackle and it would have been a free-kick elsewhere on the pitch.

But it is a contact sport and it’s natural that there will be a coming together in instances like that.

Aside from the penalty award, Zwayer had a good game.

There were fears decisions would go against England because of Jude Bellingham’s previous comments about Zwayer.

Bellingham was fined £34,000 in 2021 for blaming Zwayer and his match-fixing past for Borussia Dortmund’s 3-2 defeat to Bayern Munich.

But Zwayer was right to caution Bellingham for his reckless challenge on Stefan de Vrij in the second half.

Another added: “Hasselbaink celebrating England‘s winner with Southgate, then realises fellow Dutch eyes are on him lol.”

Hasselbaink joined England’s coaching staff in March 2023 after leaving his manager role at Burton Albion in September 2022.

Watkins had predicted that he would score before coming onto the pitch as he told fellow substitute Cole Palmer that he would set him up.

Hasselbaink was not the only person to get caught up in the celebrations.

Pundits Gary Neville and Ian Wright went wild in the ITV studio while Roy Keane remained his composed self.

Fans who had been at the O2 Arena to watch The Killers were treated to one of the “coolest” moments on stage.

The band stopped playing for the crowd to watch the final moment, and as the final whistle went, confetti was fired over the fans.

The Killers then broke into a brilliant rendition of dancefloor classic Mr Brightside.

England will face Spain in the Euro 2024 final on Sunday at the Olympiastadion in Berlin.

The Spanish reached the final by beating France in the other semi-final 2-1.

Randal Kolo Muani had given the French the lead before goals from Lamine Yamal and Dani Olmo sent Spain through.

England ratings vs Holland

ENGLAND stormed into the final against Spain thanks to Ollie Watkins’ last-minute strike in the 2-1 win over Holland.

It was a brilliant team performance, but how did each player rate?

SunSport’s Tom Barclay ran the rule over Southgate’s boys, and here’s how he rated them.

Jordan Pickford: 7

Bigger goalkeepers may have got a stronger hand to Xavi Simons’ early stunner – though that was being hypercritical. Solid stop to deny Virgil van Dijk after the hour.

Kyle Walker: 7

Looked re-energised after some lumbering displays and bombed on at times in the first half, despite his role on the right of a back three. Last-ditch tackle on Cody Gakpo was spot on.

John Stones: 7

Strong in possession. He looks to have benefited from regular game-time after rarely featuring for Manchester City in the last few months.

Marc Guehi: 6

Came back into the side after suspension ruled him out of the Switzerland game. Had an unenviable task of making the big man Wout Weghorst after the break.

Bukayo Saka: 7

Razor-sharp in the first half, winning tackles, making runs and dribbling the ball proficiently. Less of an impact after the break, had a goal ruled out for offside and was booked.

Declan Rice: 6

Lost possession for Simons’ thunderous opener but grew into the game, mopping up where necessary. Poor pass when Kane was open midway through the second half.

Kobbie Mainoo: 8

Was England’s youngest-ever player to play in a major-tournament semi-final, aged 19years 82 days, and had a stormer in the first half. Great bursts forward, vital tackles, and his interplay with Foden was a joy.

Kieran Trippier: 6

We all know by now that he is playing out of position, so again he was limited going forward and reliable defensively. Subbed at half-time for the more natural Shaw.

Phil Foden: 7

The first 45 minutes was by far and away his best half of the tournament. Thought he’d scored when his shot was cleared off the line by Denzel Dumfries, and cracked the post with a cracker. But was then surprisingly subbed.

Jude Bellingham: 5

Back at the ground where he made his name but struggled to make much of an impact on his old stomping ground. Fortunate it was not he that was subbed.

Harry Kane: 6

Won and dispatched the penalty to go joint top-scorer in the tournament with three goals. Had looked more mobile initially but still tired badly after the break and was taken off.


Luke Shaw (for Kieran Trippier, half-time): 6

Looked assured for a man who has been out for so long.

Ollie Watkins (for Harry Kane, 81): 9 and STAR MAN 

Surprisingly given the nod over Ivan Toney as striker sub as Southgate looked for more pace in behind. Brilliant finish into the corner to win the game – you could not ask more from him.

Cole Palmer (for Phil Foden, 81): 7

Had his big chance in the final minutes but shanked it horribly wide – but then fed Watkins for his wonderful winner.

Gareth Southgate: 8

His switch to a back three against Switzerland helped dig out the win there, and here it had his team finally playing some great football in the first half. The team went into their shells again as the game wore on and you feared the worst – but you have to say his decision to bring on Ollie Watkins was a masterstroke.
