Goodbye

That's all folks. England's Euro 2016 audition is over and the results will be made public on 12 May when Roy Hodgson names his 23-man squad, plus seven standby players, for the tournament. Will Danny Drinkwater make the plane? Has John Stones done enough? Will Theo Walcott be watching the tournament on television? All will be become clear. Thanks for your company. It's been a ball. Until next time...

'I hope they continue to excite me'

England 1-2 Netherlands

More from England manager Roy Hodgson on BBC Radio 5 live: "All the teams we played in qualifying sat back so we were aware of that, we knew it was coming and were prepared for that.

"At 1-0 up I was hoping we would kick on but we didn't and then they levelled it up and got a second goal when I thought we should have had a free-kick in the build up to it.

"There are seven or eight league games left for these players, I hope their performances continue to excite me and give me hope for France."

Hodgson: 'We couldn't recreate the buzz'

England 1-2 Netherlands

England manager Roy Hodgson tells BBC Radio 5 live: "We were very disappointed, the crowd was fantastic we wanted to send them away with a victory but weren't able to. It's very much highs and lows this week.

"We didn't reach the level of intensity we did on Saturday, we weren't as creative but we had control over the game, we always seemed to be on the ball, didn't seem to be in danger but needed to create a lot more chances.

"We couldn't recreate the buzz from Berlin and the two decisions that resulted in the goals could've gone our way.

"But I still wouldn't have been satisfied even with a 1-0 win."

'I'd pick Shelvey'

"I'd like to see Jonjo Shelvey in the squad. He could play that role very well, getting the ball deep, he really can spray the ball around,.

"He's great at hitting a 40 or 50-yard ball into the path of the strikers.

"He's been disregarded - he wasn't playing for Swansea so he went to Newcastle, he's playing, he's captain but he's been disregarded."

Wilshere or Drinkwater?

Jermaine Jenas

Ex-Spurs & England midfielder on BBC Radio 5 live

"If Jack Wilshere is fit then he goes to the Euros. I'd take him over Danny Drinkwater.

"I don't think Jack is naturally a holding midfielder but neither is Drinkwater, he's more box to box.

"They're both uncomfortable in the holding role but I'd personally pick Jack."

'We learned a lot'

England 1-2 Netherlands

More from England boss Roy Hodgson on ITV: "We learned a lot. It was important to change the team and give the players a chance to show what they can do. I was most disappointed for the crowd of 82,000, which was fantastic, and it would have been nice to send them home with a victory.

"I'm certain that the two games will have helped me with the decision about who to take on the plane to France with us."

'Not the performance I wanted'

England boss Roy Hodgson on ITV: "I think we werehard done by and I don’t think we deserved to lose the game, the way the two decisions went against us [the penalty against England and a foul in the build-up to the Netherlands' second goal]. It was nothing like the performance I was after. We weren’t as intensive or incisive as we were against Germany."

Paul Collins: Beating Germany had as much do with them switching off as England being good. You all ignore and hype up though. Gonna be Deja Vu.

'Shocking tale of mismanagement'

Phil McNulty

BBC Sport chief football writer

"The departure of manager Remi Garde after less than five months in charge is the latest desperate episode in a story of chaos and crisis that will soon end in Aston Villa's relegation.

"Garde's exit is just another piece of the wreckage piling up around Villa Park as they lie hopelessly adrift at the foot of the Premier League with 16 points from 31 games, 12 points from the safety of 17th place with only seven matches left.

"The Frenchman follows chief executive Tom Fox and sporting director Hendrik Almstadt out of the club.

"Villa's demise is a shocking tale of mismanagement that is taking the club into the Championship with no guarantee of a swift return - and the 49-year-old leaves after an ignominious, short reign."

'Lerner must take responsibility'

Pat Murphy

BBC Radio 5 live

Remi Garde looks dejected

"Remi Garde is the latest manager to feel let down by Randy Lerner. No one would've blamed Garde if he'd walked out when the January transfer window closed after he'd been promised new signings when he was appointed in November.

"But Garde ended up lumbered with the same squad that got Tim Sherwood the sack in October.

"Lerner must take major responsibility for Villa turning from relegation sleepwalkers into headlong dashers towards the rocks."

Garde leaves Aston Villa

In case you missed it earlier, Remi Garde is no longer manager of the Premier League's bottom club Aston Villa.

There's been plenty of reaction coming in to his departure. 

Player reaction

Injured England captain Wayne Rooneytold ITV: "Tonight is disappointing. The players will feel hard done by. We didn't deserve to lose but we could have done more to win it."

'A reality check'

England 1-2 Netherlands

Ian Dennis

BBC Radio 5 live senior football reporter

"If we're honest, England really didn't look like scoring. This is a bit of a reality check even though Roy Hodgson and the players stressed they weren't getting ahead of themselves after Germany."

Behrang Rashidian: Don't worry England. Friendlies don't really count. What's that you say? You beat Germany in a friendly? Oh...

Kris Foster: We lacked ideas tonight. Needed to mix it up instead of playing it to feet, a target man is key for the Euros if we need a goal.

Samuel Jones: Makes you wonder how many other players such as Drinkwater and Vardy are lurking unnoticed in the Football League.

Where was the creativity?

"The problem is when all the creative players are trying to operate in the same area - where there is space to go into that's when you see the best of Ross Barkley and Dele Alli.

"Tonight they had to go in areas where they aren't comfortable receiving the ball.

"Sometimes it's about finding the right combinations of players who play well together."

England back down to earth

England 1-2 Netherlands

Phil McNulty

BBC Sport chief football writer at Wembley

"After the joy of Germany comes the woe of Wembley. This friendly ended in defeat and near silence as the Netherlands held on in comfort for victory.

"England manager Roy Hodgson warned everyone not to get carried away after that superb 3-2 win in  Berlin on Saturday. This defeat reinforces that message of reality."

England goalscorer Jamie Vardy tells ITV: "It's an unbelievable feeling to score for England at Wembley but the result is disappointing. I have got to carry on the way I have been playing in the league and we will have to what happens. Danny [Drinkwater] has done himself no harm at all."

In an entertaining game, Scotland have hung on to beat Denmark 1-0 at Hampden.

England 1-2 Netherlands

Clever turn by Dele Alli inside the Dutch penalty area but the ball runs away from him and with it surely goes England's chance of forcing an equaliser.

Elsewhere in Europe

France beat Russia 4-2 thanks to birthday goals from Leicester's N'Golo Kante and West Ham's Dimitri Payet. Word reaches us that Payet's free-kick emulated his wonderful set-piece against Manchester United in the FA Cup.

'England lack ideas'

Chris Waddle

"Netherlands have played 4-5-1 and really frustrated England tonight.

"The hosts haven't shown that they've got really any idea about how to get in behind this Dutch team."

This season just gets better and better for Leicester City. Another England goal for Jamie Vardy and now Danny Drinkwater is announced as the sponsors man of the match.

England 1-2 Netherlands

England are facing their first defeat since losing away to Spain in November. It's been a stop-start performance by Roy Hodgson's side. They've created several chances but haven't hit the heights of Berlin.

Disciplined Danny

"I think Danny Drinkwater hasn't done anything wrong - you have to have discipline in that role and he's done that very well.

"He made a few nice cross-field passes, kept it simple and broke things up.

"But it's hard to shine in that position as it's all about going unnoticed."

SUBSTITUTION

Danny Drinkwater's Euro 2016 audition is over. Has he done enough to convince Roy Hodgson he is worth a place in his squad? Warm applause as the Leicester midfielder is replaced by Eric Dier.

England's defence still a worry

England 1-2 Netherlands

Phil McNulty

BBC Sport chief football writer at Wembley

"England's attacking play may have claimed plaudits - but there are serious concerns over their defence and its ability to cope with high-class opposition.

"Too many slips, too many sloppy moments and too many times the Dutch have looked physically stronger.

"Work needed."

SUBSTITUTION

Substitute Phil Jagielka takes the captain's arm band as James Milner is replaced by Dele Alli. How England could do with a moment of quality from the Tottenham teenager.

England 1-2 Netherlands

Roy Hodgson had a look of total bemusement as the Netherlands celebrated what could be the winner. There was a clear foul in the build-up but Luciano Narsingh was left completely unmarked when he scored.

A couple of full-times as Germany seal a 4-1 win over Italy while Portugal beat Belgium 2-1.

The first half was a bit of a classic. The second half not so much.

Possibly the biggest moment of the game was keeper Rob Elliot going off injured - it looks a bad one.

'A clear foul'

England 1-2 Netherlands

Chris Waddle

Former England winger at Wembley for 5 live Sport

"It's a great pull back from Janssen and a great finish from Narsingh.

"But given the benefit of a replay it's a clear foul on Jagielka by Janssen. How has the referee not seen that?"

England complain

England 1-2 Netherlands

Ian Dennis

BBC Radio 5 live senior football reporter

"England are complaining there was a foul in the build-up but play goes on, the ball is pulled back and Luciano Narsingh side foots it in.

"England are still complaining but the Dutch have come from behind to lead 2-1."

All going off

Scotland 1-0 Denmark

Scotland hanging on at times, as Craig Gordon makes a great double save to deny Denmark's Christian Eriksen and Martin Braithwaite. 

But Matt Ritchie then almost grabs a second when Andreas Christensen makes an amazing block close to the goalline. 

Now there's a bit of trouble as Liam Bridcutt thunders into a challenge with Erik Sviatchenko. If it was a competitive game he would have been sent off but only gets a yellow.
