Watkins’ Winner Secures Historic England Victory

England are on the brink of making history, and it’s all thanks to the clinical finishing of Ollie Watkins. The Aston Villa striker scored the winner in a thrilling 2-1 victory over the Netherlands, sending Gareth Southgate’s side into the EURO 2024 final.

Watkins and Palmer, a Match Made in Heaven

The duo’s link-up play was instrumental in England’s success, and it’s no surprise they’re reaping the rewards of their hard work. Speaking to ITV after the game, Watkins revealed they had previously discussed their partnership, and it’s clear their understanding is second to none.

"I’ve been waiting for that moment for weeks," Watkins said. "It’s taken a lot of hard work to get to where I am now. I’m grateful I got the opportunity and I grabbed it with both hands and I’m delighted."

Confidence is Key

England’s comeback spirit and confidence heading into the final against Spain are a major factor in their chances of bringing football home for the first time. As Watkins put it, "We’ve got that kind of bounce-back factor, going a goal behind seems to kick us into gear. We never give up. We’ve won on penalties and come from behind. There’s one more game now – we’re ready."

What’s Next for England?

With Spain waiting in the final, England will need to be at the top of their game to lift the trophy. But if anyone can do it, it’s this plucky bunch. Will they finally bring football home in 2024? Only time will tell.
