But excellent in game management from Silhavy meant that the Czech could capitalise on their extra man advantage.

- 1st Half
The Czech Republic get this last 16 tie under way in what feels like a full house in the Puskas Arena
With kick-off less than five minutes away both sets of players make their way out onto the pitch for their respective national anthems
The history books don't favour the Czech Republic as they have been eliminated in three of their last four games in the knockout stages of the European Championships- versus Germany in the final in 1996, Greece in the semi-final in 2004, and most recently, Portugal in the Euro 2012 quarters.
Can the Dutch make it four in four for a second time since Euro 2000....
Silhavy has already steered his side further than previous coach Pavel Vrba could during their ill-fated 2016 run - keeping with the theme of the Czech Republic bowing out at the group stage one year then progressing to the knockout rounds during the next cycle.
While Frank de Boer has sight his sights on returning home with the cup "We want to be getting paraded down the canals of Amsterdam on a boat: that is the ultimate goal. We not only want to reach the final, but also to win it. Then the tournament is completely successful. We are now focusing only on the Czech Republic; we have a lot of work to do to deal with the Czechs."
Ahead of the game Czech coach Jaroslav Šilhavý made it clear that his side had done their homework on the Dutch opposition: "We have analysed all the Netherlands' games and they had about 30 chances. We simply must effectively and responsibly defend as a team. It is not about the Dutch tactical system but about their massive attacking power. We must work hard as a team, work hard and be dangerous in attack. If we do not come up win an exceptional performance, we will not succeed."
The Netherlands have been ruthless in front of goal throughout these Championships. No other team in the group stage bettered the eight goals that Oranje scored in their three group matches, with De Boer witnessing his side score at least two goals in each of their last 10 matches in all competitions.
The Netherlands will need to be at their best as the Czech Republic have previously been something of a nemesis for the Dutch in this competition. They prevented Oranje from qualifying for UEFA EURO 2016, winning home and away, and also came back from 2-0 down during an epic confrontation at EURO 2004 to win 3-2.
The Dutch really know how to bring colour to a major tournament!!
And here is the Czech side that is aiming to break Dutch hearts....
Here is the side that Frank de Boer has gone for.
