Striker Patrik Schick sealed 10-man Netherlands' fate earning Czech Republic a deserved 2-0 victory in their European Championship last-16 clash in front of 56,000 fans at the Puskas Arena on Sunday.

The Czechs created better chances against their more fancied opponents in the frenzied atmosphere and booked a quarter-final meeting with Denmark in Baku on Saturday when Tomas Holes headed in at the back post in the 68th minute after Tomas Kalas had steered the ball into his path.

Holes then turned provider as he set up Schick for a second, the striker slotting the ball coolly past veteran Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg to continue his dream tournament.

The Dutch challenge was dealt a blow on 55 minutes when centre back Matthijs De Ligt received a red card for a handball just outside his own box. He was initially given a yellow card, but referee Sergei Karasev changed his mind after a Video Assistant Referee check.

The Netherlands were quite not clinical as they have been with 90 minutes of play without a shot on target, managing 6 shots in the match.

The red card to De Ligt dealt their defensive organization a huge blow and the Czechs road into the quarterfinals in style.

This means the end of the road for Frank De Boer and his men at the Euro 2020 while the Czechs progress to face Denmark in the Quarterfinal.
