The Netherlands (Netherlands) had not reached the quarterfinals of a European Championship for thirteen years, but the renewed team led by Frank de Boer this Sunday did not meet expectations in a stadium Ferenc Puskas of Budapest completely full and fell clearly against the Czech Republic, which next Saturday will play an unexpected quarterfinal against Denmark.

The Dutch got off to a good start and initially assumed responsibility for attack and put to the test the characteristic order of the Czech team, which had only two games to qualify for eighths final. Your best player in the tournament, the forward Patrik Schick (three goals), seemed to live too isolated in the lead and his team hardly generated danger in the first bars, in which the players of Orange they pestered the goalkeeper several times Vaclik (clear occasion of the listed Dumfries included).

The panorama, however, change progressively during the first half. First, the players in white deactivated the game channels of the football team. Frank de Boer, too dependent on individual initiatives of Depay and Malen. The Czech Republic had annulled Wijnaldum and Soucek (extraordinary first time) suffocated De Jong, the orange brain, gradually taking over the center of the field and starting to shoot at Stekelenburg’s gate. De Ligt saved a goal from Barak in the 36th minute, when the Czechs had not only balanced the game, but had they scared to the rival fans. With a certain more danger approaching for each team, the arrival of halftime did not bother either of the two coaches.

Same panorama

De Boer’s locker room talk produced no visible effects in Holland (Netherlands), lack of arguments convincing football players until grind performed a formidable slalom through the center and stood alone in front of Vaclik, to which he did not manage to haggle in the supreme luck. The tie was still on the scoreboard, but moments later the WHERE froze the match in a seemingly inconsequential hand of De Ligt (which slipped before Schick) and concluded in a Red card to the Dutch central Juventus, decreed after minutes of suspense. The party had disheveled at last, with bad omens for the favorite.

De Boer introduced Promes by the punished Malen while the party continued to acquire temperature. The Czech Republic tried to temper the debauchery somewhat to ruminate on its numerical superiority, but the Netherlands was already playing with the machete between their lips, with two lines of four and Memphis Depay as a battering ram. Coufal, the West Ham side, was an aircraft by the Right Lane and those in white already clearly dominated the match at game time: a very surprising scenario.

Dumfries saved a goal made in the 65th minute, while his team shivered like a flan in Budapest in front of the monologue of the neighboring country. And three minutes later Party he finished off a very poorly defended side kick with a second header inside the area. The surprise it was no longer a probability. The Netherlands had not been behind in any minute on the scoreboard until that moment and looked grief on the field, a candidate for the title after being absent in the last two final phases.

The Czechs showed skill in the art of waste time, but the rivals tried to get the pride, weakened by the bad afternoon of De Jong. At no time did they show signs of a true recovery, but the slight signs disappeared when in the 79th minute Schick extended his scoring streak and made the 2-0. End of the dream of Holland (Netherlands), which ended a very important match in its Recovery after giving his fans high hopes for two weeks.
