Comments:

Netherlands had won eight of their preceding ten games, and scored at least two goals in each of those games. They failed in their attempt to win their opening four games at a UEFA European Championship finals for a second time; previously at Euro 2000 when they were co-hosts. Matthijs de Ligt was initially shown a yellow card after 52 minutes but was upgraded to a red card for deliberate hadball following a VAR review. He became the first Dutch player to be sent-off at UEFA European Championship finals since Johnny Heitinga against Czech Republic in a Group D game in 2004.

Comments:

Czech Republic had now reached the quarter-finals of the UEFA European Championship finals for the fourth time; also 1996, 2004 and 2012. Following the group stage win against Scotland, they had now won two of their last eight games at major tournaments. Only Milan Baros (five) had now scored more goals at major tournaments for Czech Republic than Patrik Schick (four).
