Netherlands have reached the last eight of Euro 2008 with a superb win against France.

Dirk Kuyt headed the Dutch in front after only 10 minutes, with Arsenal's Robin van Persie doubling their lead in the second half.

Thierry Henry pulled one back for France, but within a minute Arjen Robben scored the Netherlands' third.

Wesley Sneijder got the fourth, taking the score to 4-1, and leaving France fighting to stay in the competition.
