England vs Netherlands live updates: Ollie Watkins stunner sets up Euro 2024 final against Spain

Dumfries and involvement have never been strangers. The full-backs of 50 years ago might recognise him in the same way that an ancient Egyptian tablet carver might recognise an iPad.

Overlapper does not quite seem to describe what he does; ultralapper might be a better turn.

The 28-year-old is adventure made human, half-resembling the child hero of a Pixar film, half-resembling a Red Bull-sponsored extreme skier, tossing themselves down a mountain.

But after 15 minutes, Dumfries proceeded to toss himself into Kane. An England equaliser, and a Dumfries yellow card. Even by the Netherlands wing-back’s dynamic standards, his first half against England was busier than most.

As for the rest, this was the cliche of ‘a game that had everything’ within one player, within 30 minutes.
