Czech send 10-man Netherlands out of Euro 2020

The Czech Republic put up a superb team performance to eliminate the 10-man Netherlands by defeating them 2-0, to progress to the quarterfinal. 

Matthijs de Ligt was sent off just 10 minutes after the restart, for using his hand to stop a goal-scoring opportunity, and after a VAR review, the Juventus defender was sent off.

The deadlock was broken in the 68th minute after Tomas Kalas headed a corner kick to Tomas Holes, and Holes nodded the ball past the entire dutch like to give the Czech Republic a 1-0 lead.

The Czech Republic put the icing on the cake in the 80th minute, after a long ball fell to Holes, who gave a lovely pass to Patrik Schick, who coolly finished past Maarten Stekelenburg to give his side a 2-0 lead.

The Netherlands are not out of the 2020 European Championship, while the Czech Republic have now progressed to the quarterfinal to set up a meeting with Denmark.
