It will be a third European Championship meeting between the two, with each team winning once (though both previous occasions came in the group phase).

Netherlands vs Czech Republic build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Heading into this championship, doom and gloom surrounded Oranje‘s chances. Some even contemplated whether they would escape the group stage. But not only have Frank de Boer’s men reached the knockout phase, they did so with a 100% record. An exhilarating opening game against Ukraine, in which Oranje ran out 3-2 winners, was followed by straightforward affairs (2-0 v Austria and 3-0 v North Macedonia). They are now seeking a first knockout win at the European Championship since 2004, when they reached the semi-finals.
The visiting Czech team were party poopers when they inflicted a 2-0 loss on hosts Scotland to open their Euro 2020 campaign. They followed up that result with a hard-fought point against Croatia (1-1) at the same Hampden Park venue but couldn’t deny England (0-1) and ultimately finished third in their group. Having been dumped out of the group phase at Euro 2016, they’ve given themselves a chance of reaching the quarter-final stage for a fourth time across seven European Championship appearances.
- Netherlands (vs North Macedonia): Stekelenburg; De Vrij, Blind, De Ligt; Dumfries, Gravenberch, De Jong, Van Aanholt; Wijnaldum; Depay, Malen.
- Czech Republic (vs England): Vaclik; Coufal, Celustka, Kalas, Boril*; Soucek, Holes; Masopust, Darida, Jankto; Schick.
Dutch forwards Donyell Malen and Wout Weghorst are both pushing to start alongside Depay with the former likely to get the nod. As for the Czechs, regular left-back Jan Bořil is suspended, meaning Šilhavý will have to make at least one change from his tried and tested starting lineup.

Players to watch:
Netherlands: Although headlines suggest the Dutch national team are playing 3-5-2, a more accurate description would be 3-4-1-2 with Oranje captain Georginio Wijnaldum in that all-important ‘number 10’ role behind their two centre-forwards. He’s grown with each passing game and goes into this Czech showdown as the Netherlands leading goalscorer on three goals. Last time out, the soon-to-be Paris Saint-Germain midfielder moved onto 25 international goals, surpassing Euro 1988 hero Marco van Basten, albeit playing an extra 20 matches. In fact, since the start of 2019, he’s bagged 15 goals across 25 appearances. That’s more than any teammate donning orange.
Czech Republic: So far, the Dutch have registered eight goals, five more than the Czech Republic have managed. But it’s worth reiterating that Šilhavý first-choice striker is holding up his end of the bargain. Patrik Schick began Euro 2020 in Glasgow like a man possessed and may have even scored the goal of this summer’s championship. He’d follow that brace with another strike, this time from the spot, against Croatia and with all said and done, he’s recorded six of the Czech Republic’s nine shots on target in the group stage. This is the highest percentage of any player for his time in the tournament (67%). That said, five of those came in the aforementioned Scotland game.
