Juventus defender De Ligt: Holland out of Euros because of me

Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt

Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt blames himself for Holland’s elimination from Euro 2020.

De Ligt was sent off as Holland lost to the Czech Republic on Sunday night.

“Obviously, it hurts,” De Ligt said live on NOS TV after the final whistle.

“Fundamentally, we lost the game because of what I did. With hindsight, I shouldn’t have let the ball bounce. I felt like we had the game under control and had a few chances, especially in the first half.

“I didn’t even have the sensation that the Czechs were creating many scoring opportunities, but obviously the red card made the difference.”
