The Dutch finished top of their group with three wins from their three matches and are the top scorers in the tournament, having managed eight goals
Netherlands face Czech Republic at the Puskas Arena on Sunday in the last-16 of Euro 2020.
Frank De Boer’s men have scored at least twice in each of their last 10 matches in all competitions and their eight goals at Euro 2020 have come from four different players, with Gini Wijnaldum responsible for three strikes.
Jaroslav Silhavy’s side, meanwhile, made it through to the knockout stages as one of the best third-placed nations thanks to a win over a Scotland and a draw against Croatia.
But they could face a difficult knockout test tonight at a full capacity Puskas Arena against a Czech Republic outfit that showed their credentials by beating Scotland and drawing with Croatia in Group D.
While defeat to England and Croatia’s win at Hampden Park led to them ultimately going through as one of the four best third-place finishers, Jaroslav Silhavy’s side nevertheless carry a number of threats including Bayer Leverkusen striker Patrik Schick, whose stunning effort in Glasgow during the group stage looks nailed-on to scoop goal of the tournament honours.
The Puskas Arena in Budapest is the newest stadium at Euro 2020 with construction concluding in 2019. It was host to three games in Group F besides the current Round of 16 encounters.
17:03 CEST: Three Czech changes
Czech Republic make three changes to the side that lost to England at Wembley, with Pavel Kaderabek, Antonín Barak and Petr Sevcik coming in for Vladimir Darida, Jan Boril and Jakub Jankto.
Czech Republic’s starting XI: Vaclik, Coufal, Celustka, Kalas, Kaderabek, Holes, Soucek, Masopust, Barak, Sevcik, Schick.
Named after Hungarian football legend Ferenc Puskas, it is situated on the site of the former Ferenc Puskas Stadium, which was demolished in 2016.
It will be home to the Hungary national team and hosted a number of games for UEFA – including Champions League games – when public health restrictions saw parts of Europe locked down.
