The Czech Republic reached the Euro 2020 quarter-finals after stunning 10-man Netherlands 2-0 in Budapest thanks to second-half strikes from Tomas Holes and Patrik Schick.

The goals, a header by Holes and a clinical finish by Schick, arrived after Matthijs de Ligt was sent off in the 55th minute for handball, and secured the efficient Czechs a deserved berth in the last eight against Denmark in Baku on July 3.

Netherlands coach Frank de Boer, who said winning the tournament was his objective, was left to rue his misfiring side's failure to land a shot on target in a tense encounter.

"You have to take your chances at this level, and we didn't today, it wasn't good enough, the players did not reach their usual level," said De Boer.

"Tactically we weren't that bad, but suddenly one player skips away toward goal and the world turns upside down, everything changed after the red card."
