Rampant Holland produced an attacking masterclass for the second time in four days to bury France 4-1 in Bern and seal their qualification for the quarter-finals of Euro 2008.

Dirk Kuyt opened the scoring and Robin van Persie, Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder added others after the break as Marco van Basten´s in-form team sank the French in the same way they did world champions Italy on Monday.

Les Bleus´ consolation came through Thierry Henry on his return to the team, but even their revered defence could not handle the pace and brio of their opponents´ attacks.
