Netherlands head coach Frank de Boer: "They were difficult opponents, but I thought that we were better until the red card. We dominated the game. Denzel (Dumfries) reached the by-line a couple of times in the first half, and so did Patrick (van Aanholt). But in each case, the final ball could have been better.
"Games like this revolve around one or two moments. We had one of them, with Donyell (Malen), and then a few seconds later we were down to 10 men. And the worst thing you can do against a team like this is to fall behind. Then they can just play the game exactly the way they want to.
"Actually at 1-0 I had wanted to go to 3-3-3, by bringing Berghuis on as a right-winger, putting Quincy (Promes) wide on the left and having Wout (Weghorst) as centre-forward, but just before that the Czechs made it 2-0, and so I had to ditch that idea."
