Virgil van Dijk calls for officials to be 'held accountable' for their decisions as he launches tirade on referee Felix Zwayer for showing in Netherlands' dramatic Euro 2024 defeat by England Virgil van Dijk calls for officials to be 'held accountable'

Virgil van Dijk has launched a tirade on referee Felix Zwayer after England booked their place in the final of Euro 2024.

The Three Lions progressed to the last two, where they will take on Spain on Sunday as they bid to lift their first-ever European Championship three years after they lost in the final of Euro 2020.

'I don't know if I should say something about that,' he told beIN Sports. 'I said it to the Dutch media. I think it says it all that the referee went in quite quickly after the game.

'I had no time to shake his hand. But it is what it is, the game is done, we lost, certain moments were obvious that they should have gone our way, but they didn't, whatever the outcome.

It is difficult to accept this. It has been a tough year. We had a big dream and we felt we could have achieved it.

'They keep changing certain things, small changes that could have a big impact. Maybe it's a good thing that they could be held accountable as well. They didn't come here and speak to you and explain themselves like we have to when we do something wrong.

'That might be something. But I shouldn't speak about others and we have to look at ourselves.'
