England suffered semi-final heartbreak for the second consecutive major tournament after being knocked out of Euro 2017 by hosts the Netherlands.

The defeat will represent devastating failure for the Lionesses, who had targeted a first major trophy as their sole aim from the tournament.

Having lost their 2015 World Cup semi-final to Japan thanks to an injury-time own goal, individual errors again proved decisive.
