EC FootballFrank de Boer is no longer the national coach of the Netherlands. KNVB just announced this after evaluation. Orange was eliminated by the Czech Republic on Sunday in the eighth World Cup finals European Football Championship.

De Boer said in a statement shared by KNVB that the goal was not achieved, and that is clear.” “When I was approached to become national team coach in 2020, I thought it was an honor and a challenge, but I was also aware of the pressure that would come immediately upon my appointment. That pressure is only increasing now, which is not a healthy situation for me, nor to choose in the lead up like This important match for Dutch football is on its way to the World Cup qualifiers. I want to thank everyone, of course the fans and the players.”
