Netherlands and Iceland are playing out a goalless draw in their Euro 2016 Group A clash at the Amsterdam ArenA, with Danny Blind's charges down to 10 men.

The hosts were quickest off the starting blocks and threatened in the ninth minute when Arjen Robben beat a number of players and fired from 30 yards, but Hannes Halldorsson stood firm and saved the attempt.

Robben, named as captain for the first time, fashioned another chance on the quarter-hour mark, a towering header that was frantically blocked and hacked away.

The Bayern Munich winger continued to be at the heart of his side's forward drives, with a 25-yard free kick that whistled past the post in the 18th minute and a strike following a mazy run that was charged down.

Holland, however, suffered a setback just after the half-hour mark when Bruno Martins Indi was shown a straight red following a strong challenge and, despite a host of protests, the decision stood.
