Dozzell played the full 90 minutes at the Mikheil Meskhi Stadium and created the best chance of the first half, releasing Fulham’s Ryan Sessegnon, who was denied by Netherlands’ goalkeeper, Justin Bijlow.

Nottingham Forest’s striker Ben Brereton scored the only goal of the game as England made it two wins from two games, following their 2-0 success over Bulgaria in their first group game.
