    ENGLAND BOOST

    Getting beyond Germany will be a tough task.

    But the route for England this year couldn't be simpler.

    Denmark in the last-8, Sweden or Ukraine next, Denmark or Czech Republic after.

    If it isn't done this year, it never will be!

    90+6' Berghuis gets the ball on the right an has six in the box to hit.

    He clears absolutely everybody in the middle.

    That sums it up.

    90+4' Dumfries has the ball inside his half and sticks his foot through it and clears it right through to Vaclik.

    Other than that Malen save, he's not had to do much more in this second period.

    Czech celebrate the second.

    90+3' Krmencik nearly announces his arrival with a great volley from 25 yards out.

    Stekelenburg saves and the flag was up, but it was still nearly!

    88' It should be three!

    Schick is sent down the left and picks out Barak in the middle who is in acres of room.

    It's a tired touch and the Dutch get back to get it away.

    THIS CLINCHED IT

    The goal that looks to have secured the Czech Republic place in the quarter finals.

      83' A ball into the box from Promes is flicked on by Weghorst and Dumfries tries to get to it but Vaclik comes out to collect.

      De Jong picks up a YELLOW CARD for an earlier foul.

      DOUBLE DUTCH

      Substitution:

      • OFF – Van Aanholt and Blind
      • ON – Berghuis and Timber

      THE FIRST

      Here was that opening goal.

      NETHERLANDS 0-2 CZECH REPUBLIC

      80' Game over!!?

      Holeš reads the ball in the middle of the park and beats Wijnaldum – who has been completely and utterly non-existent for a captain – to the ball.

      It's great play from Holeš  as he drives into the box and cuts it back for Schick who sidefoots beyond Stekelenburg from ten yards at his near post.

      GOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLL!!

      It's that man Patrik Schick again and the Czechs are in dreamland!!

      • OFF – Masopust
      • ON – Jankto

        NETHERLANDS 0-1 CZECH REPUBLIC

        78' It looked a good strike from Masopust there!

        Barak finds Masopust on the edge of the box and he curls one towards the top corner but Stekelenburg is alive to it and works his away across to catch easily.

        Soucek and De Jong challenge

        NETHERLANDS 0-1 CZECH REPUBLIC

        77' Soucek has a go from 25 yards but it's pretty weak and Stekelenburg catches comfortably.

        NETHERLANDS 0-1 CZECH REPUBLIC

        76' A rare chance in this half from Netherlands!

        It's worked wide on the right to Dumfries who fires a fabulous ball across the face of goal but nobody in orange is there to capitalise.
