Spanish outlets Marca and AS recognized England's resilience, with AS praising Watkins' unexpected heroics. French and Swiss media also acknowledged England's hard-fought victory, with RMC Sport and Blick respectively highlighting the dramatic nature of the win.

The match was a testament to the unpredictability and excitement of football, with both teams delivering intense performances.
