England fell short in another major tournament, losing 3-0 to the Netherlands in the Euro 2017 semi-final.

The Dutch will play Denmark in Sunday’s final.

A Netherlands goal in each half put paid to the Lionesses hopes of glory and a third just before the end heaped extra agony on the team that went into the match with high expectations.

Vivianne Miedema, who has just signed for Arsenal, put the hosts in front in the 22nd minute with a fine header at the far post from Groenen’s cross

Then after the break, Fara Williams, making her 165th international appearance, gifted Holland their second after her poor back header found Van De Donk, who poked the ball past Chamberlain.

Millie Bright inadvertently deflected Lieke Martens’ effort in at the near post for the third.

England squandered several chances, but the Dutch – the tournament’s home side – were the better team on the night.

The Danes won in a penalty shoot-out.
