Netherlands beat Romania by 3-0 at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig in the UEFA Euro 2024 Round of 16 clash. Virgil Van Dijk's team is now in the Quarter-Final and this time they did register the victory convincingly. Romania couldn't survive the constant threats produced by the Dutches for the entire 90 minutes. After Gakpo's first-half goal, Malen scored two goals more to end Romania's fairy-tale run.

A brief highlight of the game

Cody Gakpo provided the Netherlands an early lead and he scored again but it was ruled out by VAR. Romania defended with their hearts out but they lacked the quality to create chances for themselves. The first half ended at a 1-0 scoreline but the Netherlands were completely dominant after a shaky start.

The second half turned out to be a nightmare for the Romanian players. They started quite brilliantly but were unable to hold onto it for long and the Dutches punished them. The Borussia Dortmund star Donyell Malen scored twice in the later stages of the second half to help his side register a convincing 3-0 victory in the Round of 16.

Now, they will either face Turkey or Austria in the next round. Austria have already beaten them in the group stage so if they manage to go through to the next round, it will be an interesting watch.
