#EqualGame in Budapest

UEFA said rainbow flags are allowed at the Puskas Arena in Budapest for Euro 2020 match between the Netherlands and the Czech Republic in the round of 16.

UEFA wrote on Twitter that it informed Hungarian soccer authorities that “rainbow-coloured symbols are not political and in line with UEFA’s #EqualGame campaign.”

Hungary has faced fierce criticism in Europe for a new law that will ban showing content about LGBT issues to children. The government says it is aimed at protecting children but critics say it links pedophilia to homosexuality. The Dutch government has been a vocal critic of the law.

Netherlands captain Georginio Wijnaldum will wear an armband emblazoned with the text OneLove and a multicolored heart for the match. The Dutch football association launched the OneLove campaign last year to tackle racism and intolerance in soccer and to promote unity.

The Oranje were one of the standout teams in the tournament during the group stage, coasting into the knockout phase and scoring eight goals in the process.

Czech coach Jaroslav Silhavy made three changes from the side that lost 1-0 to England in their final group game. 

Captain Vladimir Darida missed out after a training ground injury, and was replaced by Antonin Barak, with Pavel Kaderabek and Petr Sevcik also coming in.

Tomas Soucek took over the captain's armband for the clash at the Puskas Arena.

Hello and Welcome to the LIVE coverage of the European Championships on the second day of the Round of 16.

Here are the matches which will be played today: Netherlands vs Czech Republic and Belgium vs Portugal.

The Czechs created the better chances against their more fancied opponents in the frenzied atmosphere and booked a quarter-final meeting with Denmark in Baku on Saturday when Tomas Holes headed in at the back post in the 68th minute after Tomas Kalas had steered the ball into his path.

Holes then turned provider as he set up Schick for a second, the striker slotting the ball coolly past veteran Dutch goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg to continue his dream tournament.

The Dutch challenge was dealt a blow on 55 minutes when centre back Matthijs De Ligt received a red card for a handball just outside his own box. He was initially given a yellow card, but referee Sergei Karasev changed his mind after a Video Assistant Referee check.
