Frank De Boer has stepped down as Netherlands head coach after a disappointing showing at Euro 2020.

The Dutch were knocked out at the last-16 stage by the Czech Republic on Sunday.

A statement on the Dutch federation's website confirmed the news, with De Boer saying: "I have decided not to continue as national coach. The objective has not been achieved, that is clear."

De Boer took charge of the Oranje in September last year after his predecessor in the role, Ronald Koeman, stepped down to take over at Barcelona.

Netherlands were impressive in the group stage, winning all three matches against Ukraine, Austria and North Macedonia, but came unstuck against the Czechs after the dismissal of defender Matthijs De Ligt.

De Boer added: "When I was approached to become national coach in 2020, I thought it was an honour and a challenge, but I was also aware of the pressure that would come upon me from the moment I was appointed.

"That pressure is only increasing now, and that is not a healthy situation for me, nor for Dutch football on its way to World Cup qualification. I want to thank everyone, of course the fans and the players.

"My compliments also to the management who have created a real top sports climate here on campus."
