Netherlands vs Czech Republic predicted lineups: Team news, injuries

T

he Netherlands are looking to take the momentum from a perfect group stage into the last-16 as they face Czech Republic on Sunday.

The Dutch won all three of their games to top Group C, but Frank de Boer opted against making wholesale changes for their final fixture – despite having qualification assured – as he wanted to build the understanding and rhythm within his side.

His main selection decision will be over whether to bring striker Wout Weghorst back in to partner Memphis Depay up front, or else allow Donyell Malen to continue.

Here is how we predict the two sides will shape up…
