IT’S A KNOCKOUT
Things are getting serious now at Euro 2020.
After last night’s drama, Italy and Denmark are safely through to the quarter-final stage of the competition.
Today looks set to deliver plenty with two more matches, the first of which is a tasty looking clash in Bucharest.
Holland take on the Czech Republic for a place in the last-eight, with Frank de Boer’s side chasing a fourth-straight win in the tournament.
The Dutch have enjoyed being back in the big time and will relish this test against a Czech side who finished second in Group D.
The Czechs only win has so far come against Scotland, with Patrik Schick showing his class with three goals and counting.
Optimistic Three Lions fans will be looking at this pair and noting that England may yet face one in the last-four. Steady on.
But that’s what is at stake now, every moment matters – 90 minutes, extra-time and then penalties if we need it.
The real competition has started, Holland vs Czech Republic is set for 5pm.
