Euro 2020 quarter-finals: bracket, schedule, games and when they are played
The quarter-finals of the 2020 UEFA European Championship get underway in St Petersburg on Friday 2 July 2021.
The Euro 2020 quarter-final line-up is now set, after a last 16 that served up significant surprises and one of the most thrilling days of football ever seen at a major tournament.
Dutch and French stunned by underdogs
The Netherlands were shocked by the Czech Republic in Budapest, goals by Tomas Holes and Patrik Schick doing for the Dutch after Matthijs de Ligt’s red card, while Switzerland stunned world champions France in Bucharest, winning on penalties after a topsy-turvy 3-3 thriller.
Switzerland’s against-the-odds triumph over Les Bleus completed a 14-goal extravaganza of football on Monday, after Spain claimed an equally dramatic, 5-3 extra-time win over Croatia earlier in the evening. Only once have more goals been scored on a single day of European Championship action.
14 - Only June 23rd 2021 has produced more goals (18 in 4 games) on a single day in European Championship history than the 14 goals scored in today's two games. Mindblowing. #EURO2020— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) June 28, 2021
Portugal's title defence ended, England see off Germany
Elsewhere, defending champions Portugal were narrowly beaten by Belgium, England claimed their first knockout-stage victory over Germany since the 1966 World Cup final, Wales were thumped by Denmark, and Italy and Ukraine required extra time to edge out Austria and Sweden, respectively.
