The Netherlands became the first heavyweight casualties of Euro 2020 as they crashed out to the Czech Republic in the last-16.
Frank de Boer’s side, back at a major tournament for the first time since the 2014 World Cup, had come to be seen as one of the favourites after an impressive group stage but came unstuck here.
The Dutch completely lost their way in front of a capacity crowd in Budapest after Matthijs de Ligt was sent off for handball on 55 minutes.
Tomas Holes gave the Czechs the initiative with a powerful header on 68 minutes and Patrik Schick wrapped up victory with his fourth goal of the tournament 10 minutes from time.
The Czechs, who only qualified from England’s Group D in third place, will now face Denmark for a place in the semi-finals.
