◼️ Lingard scored the only goal of the match for the British in the friendly against Koeman’s team, absent from the next World Cup.

England passed the test in Amsterdam by winning 1-0 to the Netherlands, without the World Cup in Russia, but presented a tough opposition to those led by Gareth Southgate.

Both teams alternated in the possession of the game during the first stage, but the most dangerous came in the half hour by a header from Jordan Henderson that went wide and was close to give the advantage to the visit.

Jesse Lingard broke the monotony at 59 minutes. The Manchester United player took the ball after a rebound and took a shot that could not get the goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet. Deserved prize for the one who looked for more during the meeting.

The incessant modifications on each side distorted the game and, until it was settled on court, the team of Ronald Koeman was lukewarm to corner the English in his field. Even Kieran Trippier was able to increase the advantage and he found a good response from Zoet under the three clubs.

England will have their second commitment on the FIFA date next Tuesday, at Wembley, against Italy, another heavyweight who will not be in the World Cup.
