Dutch reach Nations League final as England self-destruct

SHOWS: GUIMARAES, PORTUGAL (JUNE 6, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) NETHERLANDS COACH, RONALD KOEMAN, SAYING: "No, we don't stop after tonight.

I think there's always something to improve, but we are in a good way.

And the team is happy, the team is confident in the way we like to play.

I think we have big, big talents coming through the system.

And there's really some experience on the team.

Two players who won the Champions League.

This experience, to play and win the semi-final and to get experience to play the final this Sunday (June 9) makes everything much easier." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND COACH, GARETH SOUTHGATE, SAYING: "Incredibly proud that the players have given absolutely everything.

It's very painful for them.

It's very painful for everybody.

But it's a night where we would have learned so much.

And some individuals really stood out.

People like Declan Rice hadn't been in that sort of environment before.

Ross Barkley, I thought was really outstanding.

Raheem (Sterling).

So, it was tough to take in the end because you get to a semi-final, another semi-final, it should be a positive, but of course everybody leaves even more deflated.

And I can understand that, but I have to look at the bigger picture of what the players have given me and the way that they've tired incredibly for their country." STORY: Netherlands capitalised on two England defensive mix-ups in extra time as they came from behind to win their Nations League semi-final 3-1 on Thursday (June 6) and set up a showpiece final against Portugal.

The Dutch went 2-1 ahead when defender Kyle Walker turned the ball into his own net after a mistake by team mate John Stones in the 97th minute and Quincy Promes completed the scoring in the 114th after Ross Barkley gave the ball away.

England thought they had scored in the 83rd minute when Jesse Lingard ran on to Barkley's pass to find the net but he was ruled a fraction offside after a two-minute VAR review.

The Dutch will face hosts Portugal in Sunday's (June 9) final in Porto, while England were left to contemplate a fourth successive competitive semi-final defeat following their losses at the 1990 and 2018 World Cups and Euro 96.
