Jamie Vardy put the hosts ahead, but goals from Vincent Janssen and Luciano Narsingh ensured the visitors left with the win.
How did the England players fare on a frustrating night at Wembley?
Indifferent performances from the England defence
Fraser Forster (6): The Southampton man made a number of good saves and kept out Janssen’s effort after a slip from John Stones.
Kyle Walker (6): Walker was a threat going forward, getting beyond his marker on several occasions and assisted the opening goal.
John Stones (7): Despite his error that eventually led to a penalty, Stones started off the move that led to England’s goal and created a chance for Theo Walcott following a terrific pass.
Chris Smalling (6): A solid performance from the 26-year-old. Didn’t do a lot wrong.
Danny Rose (6): Always a threat going forward, however, was disappointing in the final third. The Tottenham Hotspur defender was also penalised for a handball inside the box in which the Netherlands converted.
Drinkwater shines on England debut
Danny Drinkwater (8): An impressive debut from the Leicester City midfielder. Showed great composure on the ball throughout and did his defensive duties well.
James Milner (5): The majority of Milner’s corners found the gloves of the Holland shotstopper and the stand-in captain was substituted early into the second half.
Ross Barkley (5): Wasn’t as effective in an England shirt in comparison to recent games, although he did go close in the second half when he fired just wide.
Vardy scores again
Adam Lallana (7): Played a wonderful pass to Walker for Vardy’s goal and showed good footwork in tight situations.
Daniel Sturridge (5): Played a key part in his side's goal but that was as good as it good for the striker.
Jamie Vardy (7): Took his goal well and could have had a second but was denied by a fantastic save.
Theo Walcott (6): Went close on a couple of occasions and looked menacing when running at the Netherlands defence.
Nathaniel Clyne (5): Didn’t do anything noteworthy.
Harry Kane (5): The forward didn’t get a lot of service when he came on, although dragged a shot wide after creating a half chance for himself.
Phil Jagielka (5): Looked comfortable but didn’t play long enough to get a fair rating.
Dele Alli (5): Didn’t do anything noteworthy.
Eric Dier (5): Didn’t do anything noteworthy.
