18:58

MI-TIME

Only Sweden have had as many corners in the first half of a Euro.

18:50

45’+3

IT’S HALF-TIME IN MUNICH! After being bullied by Romania at the start of the match, the Netherlands reversed the balance of power thanks to a sublime and sudden goal from Cody Gakpo (20th). Dominant and incisive, Ronald Koeman’s men could have made the break just before the break, if Xavi Simons had played the game well.

18:49

45’+3

First Romanian corner cleared by Van Djik and his partners.

18:48

45’+1

Dragus calls on Verbruggen for a left-handed shot from the edge of the Dutch area. The Brighton keeper delivers without fuss.

18:47

45′

Additional time: 3 minutes minimum.

18:45

44′

Simons gets tangled up! In the area on the right side, Dumfries steals the ball from Racovitan’s feet. He crosses back to the PSG player, who hesitates when it comes to shooting. His off-balance right-footed shot goes wide.

18:45

43′

Depay takes the corner from the right side. He tries to shoot it straight. Nita accompanies the vicious ball over her crossbar.

18:43

42′

10 corners to 0 for the Oranje. Proof of their unchallenged domination.

18:42

41′

It’s going way too fast for the Tricolori. They are totally overwhelmed by the Netherlands’ passing game. They are on the limit on every defensive intervention.

18:41

40′

Nita punches a corner from Depay. He relieves his teammates as best he can.

18:40

38′

Change for Romania: Bogdan Racovitan replaces Vasile Mogos.

18:38

37′

Cody Gakpo or the Orange who shows up when needed.

18:37

35′

Mogos will not return to the field. He sat on the Romanian bench.

18:36

33′

Mogos remains on the ground after a rough contact with Dumfries. The Tricolori left-back indicates that he is out of breath. Play is stopped.

18:35

31′

Dragusin narrowly misses the own goal! Shifted into the interval on the right by Reijnders, Dumfries delivers a powerful cross in front of the Romanian goal. Dragusin tackles just in front of Depay in the direction of his goal. The ball goes narrowly wide.

18:32

29′

The game’s physiognomy has completely changed since Cody Gakpo opened the scoring for the Netherlands. The Oranje no longer leave the opposing 30 meters.

18:31

Watch Cody Gakpo’s goal reassure the Oranje.

18:30

27′

De Vrij very close to making the break! After a corner taken at the far post by Depay, the rock of Inter took advantage of Burca’s hesitation to place his header. He made Nita’s small outside net tremble.

18:28

26′

The Tricolori defense is showing worrying signs of weakness.

18:28

24′

The Romanians finally react. Starting from the right, Hagi launches Stanciu on the left side, who passes back to Man. At the end of the race, he does not frame his left-hand shot.

18:24

23′

Cody Gakpo’s shot on goal was clocked at 121 km/h.

18:24

22′

The Tricolori lost a blow to the helmet after this goal by Cody Gakpo. Stunned, they are now subject to repeated offensives from the Netherlands.

18:21

20′

GOAL BY CODY GAKPO FOR THE NETHERLANDS!!! Transparent until now, the Liverpool player pulls off a brilliant move. Found by Simons on the left, he fixes Ratiu before surprising Nita with a right-hand shot from a tight angle. 0-1 for the Netherlands.

18:20

19′

Another corner kick that comes to nothing for the Netherlands. Simons asks his supporters to push them.

18:19

18′

The Oranje take two corners, one after the other. There is a lack of presence in the Romanian area. Nita reigns supreme in the air.

18:17

16′

At the end of this first quarter of an hour, it is Romania who make the best impression. Edward Iordanescu’s men play every move to the hilt against the Batavians.

18:16

15′

Launched on the right side, Man refocuses before arming a strike with his left. His attempt from 20 meters does not go far from the frame.

18:15

13′

The 25,000 Romanian fans are making their voices heard. The yellow tide is extinguishing the Orange public, for the first time outnumbered in this Euro.

18:14

11′

The Netherlands finally cross the halfway line. Depay is found in the Romanian area. The former Lyon player, who comes up against Nita, is flagged for offside.

18:12

11′

Under pressure from the Tricolori, after a poorly measured pass from Schouten, Verbruggen makes a catastrophic clearance into touch.

18:11

9′

The Romanians are camped 30 meters from Verbruggen’s surface. They are not letting the Oranje breathe.

18:08

7′

Hagi is back on the pitch. He is wearing a cap to hold his bandage in place. Romania is back to 11.

18:07

6′

Unmarked 25 meters from the Romanian goal, on the left, Simons lights the first fuse of the match. He unleashes a shot with his right. The ball goes to nestle in Nita’s gloves.

18:06

6′

The game resumes. The Romanian staff is bandaging Hagi’s head with a compress. The Tricolori are playing 10 against 11.

18:05

4′

Hagi calls for medical attention. He remains on the ground after the contact with Dumfries. The son of Romanian football legend Gheorghe is bleeding from the scalp. The game is temporarily stopped.

18:04

2′

The Tricolori play very high, with intense pressure on the Dutch ball carrier. R. Marin delivers a good cross from the right to Hagi, beaten by Dumfries with a header.

18:00

1′

IT’S ON AT THE ALLIANZ ARENA IN MUNICH! In navy blue, the Netherlands kick off. Immediately, the Oranje project themselves forward.

17:56

17:55

PRE-MATCH

While they played four semi-finals between 1988 and 2004, the Netherlands have not reached the European Top 8 since 2008. Eliminated in the group stage in 2012, Johan Cruyff’s heirs missed the tournament in 2016 and were stuck in the last 16 in 2021.

17:53

PRE-MATCH

Romania will play their first knockout match in a Euro since 2000. The Tricolori fell in the quarter-finals against Italy (2-0), the eventual finalist.

17:48

PRE-MATCH

The Netherlands’ journey to the last 16

Drawn into the Blues group, the Oranje came out of it by the very small door. After an inaugural success against Poland (1-2), after having been led, Ronald Koeman’s men conceded a sad draw against France (0-0) before losing to a surprising Austria (3-2). The Netherlands qualified among the four best third-placed teams.

17:43

PRE-MATCH

Romania’s journey to the round of 16

Surprise defeaters of Ukraine (3-0) on the first day, the Tricolori then lost against Belgium (2-0) before snatching a draw against Slovakia (1-1). Tied with the three other teams in its group at the end of the first round, with four points each, Edward Iordanescu’s Romania qualified by finishing first in its group.

17:15

PRE-MATCH

The orange tide flooded the streets leading to the Allianz Arena.

17:13

WELCOME

Hello everyone. Welcome to TF1info to follow the eighth-final Romania-Netherlands. The kick-off will be at 6pm at the Allianz Arena in Munich by the German referee Félix Zwayer. The winning team will meet the winner of the Austria-Turkey match, to be followed live on TF1, TF1+ and with live commentary on TF1info from 9pm.

Sixteen years that the Netherlands have not made it into the European Top 8. Almost an eternity for the Orange. Accustomed to squatting in the last four of the Euro, with four semi-finals played between 1988 and 2004, the heirs of Johan Cruyff are facing a glass ceiling. Quarter-finalists in 2008, the “Flying Dutch” did not get past the group stage in 2012, were stuck in the last 16 in 2021, and even missed the tournament in 2016, unable to qualify despite being semi-finalists at the 2014 World Cup.

Cited by the outsiders before the Euro, Ronald Koeman’s men have, for the moment, not lived up to their rank in the group stage. Winners of Poland (2-1), after being behind on the scoreboard, they conceded a sad draw against the Blues (0-0), before logically losing against Austria (3-2). A mediocre first round, laboriously concluded in one of the four best third-placed places.
