Gradually Portugal began to dominate and in the 25th minute they took a deserved lead when Jose Gomes headed in a free kick from  Rúben Vinagre. In the second half Portugal sealed their victory through Diogo Dalot to send Netherlands home.

It ends a decent tournament for Kees van Wonderen’s side, while Portugal advance to face either Germany or Spain in the final.
