VAR sends England-The Netherlands semi-final to extra-time

Guimaraes (Portugal) (AFP) –


England's Nations League semi-final against the Netherlands went to extra-time on Thursday as VAR denied the Three Lions a late winner in a 1-1 draw in Guimaraes.

Marcus Rashford's first-half penalty was cancelled out by Matthijs de Ligt's towering header for the Dutch.

Jesse Lingard thought he had sent England into Sunday's final against Portugal by rounding off a wonderful team move six minutes from time, but the goal was ruled out for offside by the finest of margins after a VAR review.
