The Netherlands manager Frank de Boer has warned his men not to drop their levels when they face the Czech Republic in their Euro 2020 last-16 tie.

The

take on the

Czech Republic

in the last 16 of Euro 2020 on Sunday as they look to extend their winning streak to four games.

This is the third time that both sides face each other at the European Championship, with both teams winning one game previously. 

The Oranje have been in perfect form and were the top scorers during the group stage with eight goals ahead of the match in Budapest.

"After the win over North Macedonia, we pulled the plug for a while and had a day off," De Boer told a media conference on Saturday.

"But then we immediately picked up the thread again. The other members of the technical staff and the players themselves must ensure that there is no slackening. 

"Players have to hold each other accountable for that as well.

"The Czech Republic know what they want and can disrupt us. They have many people working without a ball, and it is a team that is difficult to fight. 

"We will have a lot of work to do and it will be great achievement to beat the Czech Republic."

De Boer claimed the Netherlands have the ability and quality to reach Euro 2020 glory.

"Of course it depends on the game we show,"

De Boer added

.

"I'm especially happy with the schedule we have now if we keep winning. If we progress one round, we have five rest days and then three rest days I'm happy with that schedule.

"The tournament is only successful if we sail through those challenges. We have the qualities to become European champions, but then everything has to be right."
