Frank de Boer quits as Dutch coach after Euro 2020 elimination

Netherlands coach Frank de Boer has resigned two days after his side were beaten 2-0 by the Czech Republic and eliminated in the last 16 of the European Championship, the Dutch football association KNVB said on Tuesday (June 29).

It came amid a continuing fallout for the Dutch coach after his side had shown early promise at the tournament but then flattered to deceive.

The Dutch won their three group games but then lost a knockout round match in which they were overwhelming favourites.

A newspaper poll on Tuesday showed 90% of respondents felt De Boer should go. He upset Dutch sensibilities by abandoning their traditional 4-3-3 approach and playing instead with a 5-3-2 formation at the Euros.

It caused major stir in a country obsessed with the team's tactical approach. While De Boer quelled the debate when his side was winning in the group phase, he was immediately under fire again after Sunday's defeat, not only for abandoning the "Holland school of football" but also for the substitutions he made in the match after the Dutch had Matthijs de Ligt sent off.

De Boer took over as successor to Ronald Koeman last year, winning eight of 15 games in charge.
