England 1-3 Holland – Nations League semi-final: RESULT

Holland were the better team on the night, but not in the way Croatia were in Moscow a year ago. England scored what they thought was the winner five minutes from time, but VAR intervened. Raheem Sterling grazed the crossbar in injury time. Holland had impressively long periods of control, but it is not as if England did not have their moments, too.
