85' CZECH SUBS! Holes and Sevcik are replaced by Kral
JUN 27, 2021 11:12 PM IST
IS THIS IT?
THE BIG QUESTION. Do the Dutch still have a fight in them and two goals in the next 8-odd minutes or is this it?
JUN 27, 2021 11:08 PM IST
79' GOOOOOOALL!!! SCHICK SCORES TO MAKE IT 2-0. OH MY GOD! WHAT A GAME THIS HAS BEEN. Coming to the goal, Holes charges down the left and his pull back finds the incoming Schick perfectly, whose first time shot is good enough to beat the keeper
JUN 27, 2021 11:06 PM IST
78' SAVEEE!!! That wasn't far from becoming 2-0! Stekelenburg under immense pressure. Masopust has a crack at gool. Barak sets him with a reverse ball but Masopust's curling effort from the right finds the keeper.
JUN 27, 2021 11:01 PM IST
Drinks break and sub.
73' A small cooling break is taken and de Boer uses it to bring on Wout Weghorst for De Roon
JUN 27, 2021 11:00 PM IST
Coming to the goal
With just about 20 minutes left on the clock, 10-men Netherlands concede after the corner is deep and towards Kalas, who heads it back to Holes. The player generates enough power near the right post to head the ball in like a bullet
JUN 27, 2021 10:56 PM IST
69' HOOLLLESS AND IT IS IN!! GOOOOOOALLL! CZECH REPUBLIC SCORE! YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IT! THEY REALLY HAVE!
JUN 27, 2021 10:56 PM IST
FUMBLED AND CORNER!
67' FUMBLE! CORNER! PRESSURE! A routine catch for Stekelenburg is fumbled behind for a corner after Barak crosses harmlessly. Such an easy catch but that tells you how high the pressure is. Blind is not happy but nothing comes off the corner.
JUN 27, 2021 10:53 PM IST
Netherlands vs Czech Republic
64' BLOOOOCKEDD! DENZEL DUMFRIES. TAKE A BOW! Coufal's ball deep from the right beats Soucek and Schick but falls to Kaderabek. From inside the box, he looks to go right to the far post but his shocked is defended by Dumfries
JUN 27, 2021 10:52 PM IST
60' WIDE! Czechs look to tilt momentum into their favous as Barak's cross to the near post is flicked wide by Schick. Dumfries had his hand up and the VAR checks for a potential penalty. Waiting.....no penalty. Can't imagine what Frank de Boer would have done had that been given.
JUN 27, 2021 10:50 PM IST
Wow, the start to the second half has mirrored the first. Excellent football, high-octane intensity and a red card.
JUN 27, 2021 10:48 PM IST
DE LIGT RED CARD- WHAT HAPPENED?
So, Schick, down the left, was through and was cutting into the box. De Ligt looked to stop and they both fell to ground. First, the referee gave Ligt a yellow and then a VAR check turned it into red as Ligt was seen palming the ball away on the way down. So a handball plus a foul to deny his opposition a clear opportunity to score.
JUN 27, 2021 10:44 PM IST
56' YELLOW! Coufal takes a really poor kick and then is booked with a yellow for bringing down Dumfries, who had beaten him for pace.
JUN 27, 2021 10:43 PM IST
54' RED CARD!!! DE LIGT IS OFF! IT'S ALL HAPPENING HERE! 2ND OF HIS CAREER AND THE PENDULUM SWINGS TOWARDS THE CZECHS!
JUN 27, 2021 10:42 PM IST
WHAT A SAVE
53' WHAT A SAVE!!!! Vaclik has pulled off one of the best saves of the tournament so far and Malen cannot believe it. He deserved after a glorious run. He is set free and then he manages to get past a forest of bodies. Czech keeper charges forward, flings his hands out in a one-on-one situation. What a save

SECOND HALF BEGINS
46' Netherlands get the ball rolling and we have a YELLOW CARD! Dumfries is booked for an elbow to Kaderabek. He is receiving treatment. After a while, he is back up and the game resumes.
JUN 27, 2021 10:19 PM IST
Netherlands vs Czech Republic
SUMMARY: An excellent first half saw the Dutch start well. After a phase of pressure and a few attempts, they had to deal with the same as the Czechs clawed their way back into the game. Be it De Ligt, Barak or Soucek, there were multiple shots that should have found the net. But as the scoreline has it, it's 0-0 at half-time.
JUN 27, 2021 10:18 PM IST
WIDE BUT OFFSIDE
45+2' WIDEEEE!! Oh, boy! Depay with clever footwork and skill at the edge of the box on the left and he eventually finds the incoming run of Van Aanholt. He shoots wide of the far post but it wouldn't have mattered as the offside flag was raised.
JUN 27, 2021 10:15 PM IST

JUN 27, 2021 10:11 PM IST
39' AND IMMEDIATELY, DUTCH RESPOND! Dumfries darts into the penalty area and is cut back is cleared by the sliding right foot of Czech keeper Vaclic. Wow, this is end-to-end stuff.
JUN 27, 2021 10:10 PM IST
WHAT A CHANCE
37' HOW DID THAT NOT GO IN? CHANCE OF THE GAME! Barak hids his face in absolute shock and disappointment as he is denied agonizingly by De ligt. Soucek is fed by Masopust before feeding Barak. Who is near the right post and just has the keeper to beat from inside the box. De Ligt covers and puts in a block to deflect the ball over the goal for a corner. Barak delivers the ball but nothing comes off it.
JUN 27, 2021 10:06 PM IST
Netherlands vs Czech Republic Euro 2020
35' Coufal is freed down the left and his falt cross to the far post, seeking Schick, is taken care of by De Ligt.
JUN 27, 2021 10:04 PM IST
31' KALAS BLOCKS AGAIN
31' KALAS BLOCKS AGAIN!! Better from the Netherlands as a run off the ball by Wijnaldum creates the space for Dumfries and Malen to combine with the latter's shot deflected behind off Celustka. Depay's inswinger drifts wide of the centre and the ball is easily defended again. He gets another chance as pull back from the right by Malen is cleared behind by Kalas.
JUN 27, 2021 10:00 PM IST
28' POUCHED! Schick finds space outside the box, he takes it to his preferred left foot on the right and looks to go for the far post, but the ball strikes De Roon and rebounds straight into Maarten Stekelenburg gloves.
JUN 27, 2021 09:54 PM IST
DIVING HEADER AND WIDE!
22' JUST WIDE! First real chance created by Czechs and it was a good one. Blind fails to close in on Sevcik on the right and it allows the latter to drill in a low, quick cross. Soucek gets to the end of the pass with a diving header but he only manages it to angle it wide from across the face of the goal.
JUN 27, 2021 09:51 PM IST
UEFA Euro 2020 LIVE: FOUL
20' FOUL! Celustka mistimes his tackle on Malen. The freekick is cleared away for a corner at near post. However, nothing comes off it.
JUN 27, 2021 09:50 PM IST
HOOKED AWAY BY
18' AGAIN, SO CLOSE! De Roon and Depay combine on the left before the ball is squared low and hard for Van Aanhold but Celustka makes an important clearance.
JUN 27, 2021 09:44 PM IST
WHAT A BLOCK
13' BLOCKED! OH, BOY! ELECTRIC START HERE FROM THE DUTCH. Their threat comes everywhere. Dumfries, carrying his good form into the game, collects the long ball from the back from Blind and bursts forward down the left. The ball bounces outside the box and Czech keeper Tomas Vaclik charges forward. But Dumfries heads the ball away, leaving the keeper in no man's land as soon as Dumfries brings it down and shoots towards an open goal, Kalas puts in a crucial sliding block to concede the corner. Nothing comes off it. Kalas with one of the blocks of the game so far
JUN 27, 2021 09:42 PM IST
Netherlands vs Czech Republic
11' CORNER! Czech under pressure early on here after a bright start from the Dutch. Blind and Depay combine on the right and the ball is almost casually given away to Malen by Kalas. But the ball is cleared on time. The ensuing corner taken by Depay is poor, as it falls short and is cleared away.
JUN 27, 2021 09:39 PM IST
8' CLOOOOOSEEE!!!! HOW CLOSE WAS THAT! Blind's fizzes the ball into the box from the left to the far post. De Ligt towers over his defender but only manages to head the ball back into the box. Depay fails to find the target on the rebound.
JUN 27, 2021 09:37 PM IST
6' Lovely drop of the shoulder from Depay but Holes gets back to get a toe-poke on the ball.
JUN 27, 2021 09:33 PM IST
2' OVER! On the other end, Tomas Holes finds some space and takes a shot from distance bu the ball flies into the stands.
JUN 27, 2021 09:32 PM IST
1' CLOSE! Early forays into the Czech ball from the Dutch. From the right, Malen crosses in early, looking to pick out incoming Dumfries but the ball is a tad strong.
JUN 27, 2021 09:30 PM IST
1' And here we go! Czechs get the game underway. They are all in white, while the Dutch in all orange. Let's go!
JUN 27, 2021 09:27 PM IST

JUN 27, 2021 09:17 PM IST
Here's a stat attack for you before the game begins:
1) This will be the first meeting between the Netherlands and Czech Republic since October 2015, when the Dutch were beaten 3-2 in a Euro 2016 qualifier. Indeed, they have lost each of their last two games against the Czech Republic- both coming in qualifying for the previous European Championships in 2016.
2) Czech Republic and the Netherlands will face each other at the European Championships for the third time (excl. Czechoslovakia meetings), with both sides winning one game apiece previously. Their last meeting in the competition was a thriller at Euro 2004, in which the Czech came from two goals down to win 3-2, following an 88th minute winner from Vladimir Smicer.
3) Since winning the tournament in 1988, the Dutch have progressed just two of their seven knockout stage games in the European Championship, beating Yugoslavia 6-1 in the 2000 quarterfinal and winning 5-3 on penalties against Sweden at the same stage in 2004.
4) Czech Republic have been eliminated in three of their last four games in the knockout stages of the European Championships- versus Germany in the final in 1996, Greece in the semi-final in 2004, and most recently, Portugal in the Euro 2012 quarters.
