The Netherlands are through to the UEFA European Under-21 Championship semi-finals after defeating Russia with their biggest ever finals victory.
Georginio Wijnaldum opened the scoring six minutes before half-time with an eye-catching strike and the balance was further shifted in the Netherlands' favour when Nikita Chicherin was dismissed soon after the break. Luuk de Jong doubled the lead, and although Denis Cheryshev responded, Ola John got in on the Dutch act before substitutes Danny Hoesen and Leroy Fer finished the scoring in the last ten minutes. Spain's subsequent 1-0 win against Germany means the Netherlands are through from Group B and Russia are out regardless of Wednesday's results.
