Xavi Simons fires the Netherlands ahead against England

Xavi Simons has given the Netherlands a dream start in their Euro 2024 semi final against England with a blockbuster strike into the top corner.

Simons dispossessed Declan Rice before advancing to the edge of the box and unleashing a brilliant strike into the top corner past Jordan Pickford.

The 21-year-old’s goal saw him become the youngest Dutch player to score in the knockout rounds of a European Championships.

Pickford perhaps could have done better, but this wasn’t the start England had in mind and they now face a really tough task against a well organised Dutch side.

An early goal gives England time to get back into the match and it will be interesting to see if the Dutch push for a second goal or try and protect what they have.
