England were far better than a dismal Dutch side – a team more in trauma than transition, and one who will endure a summer off – with the visitors solid, well-drilled and committed, just as they had been in the late autumn against Germany and Brazil.
They have achieved five clean sheets in succession, but there was a pleasing fluidity to the attacking approach play, too, with the emphasis always forward-thinking. Jesse Lingard’s winning goal just before the hour allayed fears this team are rendered painfully blunt in the absence of Harry Kane.
Captain heads two goals in stoppage time to steal victory for Portugal over Egypt, and Colombia come from two down to defeat France 3-2
Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo scored two stoppage-time goals to steal a 2-1 win over Egypt after Mohamed Salah had given the African side the lead in an entertaining World Cup warm-up in Switzerland on Friday. Salah scored with a thumping drive to put Egypt ahead early in the second half.
However, Ronaldo refused to be upstaged and he sneaked in behind his marker to head in Ricardo Quaresma’s cross in the 92nd minute. Not content with that, Ronaldo scored again with another header, once more from a Quaresma pass, with the final move of the game. There was initial confusion as they referee consulted the video assistant referee (VAR) system for a possible offside before allowing the goal.
