Five feature in England reverse
29 March 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
All five of our players in the senior England squad picked up some game time at Wembley on Tuesday night (March 29), but they came away disappointed after the Netherlands ran out 2-1 winners.
Full-backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose started on either side of the Three Lions’ back four while Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Eric Dier came on as substitutes in the last 20 minutes.
The latter duo were introduced as Roy Hodgson’s men chased the game following Luciano Narsingh’s 76th-minute strike, which came about as England’s defenders appealed for a free-kick after Phil Jagielka went to ground in the build-up.
Kyle had earlier provided the assist for the hosts’ goal, working an opening for himself down the right, taking a pass from Adam Lallana and immediately squaring for Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy to rifle home in the 41st minute.
However, six minutes after the break, Danny was the unfortunate player penalised for a handball in the box from Narsingh’s cross and Vincent Janssen stepped up to level for the Netherlands from the spot.
Danny made way for Nathaniel Clyne on 58 minutes before Harry was introduced in place of Lallana 12 minutes later. Dele followed him onto the pitch on 82 minutes shortly after the visitors’ second goal, replacing James Milner, and after Harry whistled a shot just wide of the near post, Eric completed the set when he came on for Danny Drinkwater with six minutes remaining.
Kyle played the full 90 minutes, while goalkeeper Michel Vorm was on the bench for the Netherlands and remained unused on the night.
