Euro 2020: Czechs beat Netherlands 2-0 to reach quarterfinals

Hungary: On Sunday, Striker Patrik Schick procured his fourth goal of Euro 2020 as the Czech Republic beat the 10-man Netherlands 2-0 in Budapest to fix up a spot in the quarterfinals, Euro 2020.

“We worked hard to succeed,” Schick stated. “We’re not as great players as they are, but team spirit might perhaps be of greater importance in today’s soccer.”

The game’s turning point came in the 55th minute when Netherlands central protector Matthijs de Ligt was sent off for a handball under Schick’s pressure. The red card was given following a video review.

Midfielder Tomas Holes later put the Czechs advanced with a strong close-range header in the 68th minute following a free-kick from the right. He raced into the left of the penalty area and squared the ball to establish Schick’s goal in the 80th.

“The Dutch were the favourites, and to beat them feels like unreal. It’s the best game of my life,” Holes related. “It’s the Euros, we had a lot of fans here, and I enjoyed it.”

On Saturday in Baku, Azerbaijan, the Czechs will face Denmark in the Championship Quarterfinals.
