Hosts The Netherlands blew a two-goal lead against Group A's bottom side Serbia to crash out of UEFA Futsal Euro 2022, while debutants Finland progressed from Group B.

Despite a defeat to defending champions Portugal in their last outing, the Dutch went into the final round of group fixtures in decent form after beating Ukraine in their opener.

Jordany Martinus and an own goal from Stefan Rakić seemingly had them in cruise control early in the second half at Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam against a Serbian side beaten in their first two matches.

However, the home crowd was left stunned as goals from Slobodan Rajčević, Denis Ramić and Andreja Stojcevski turned the contest on its head.

The Dutch had an opportunity of a reprieve with five minutes remaining, but Said Bouzambou dragged a penalty wide after he was fouled by Rajčević.

In the other Group A match at MartiniPlaza in Groningen, Ukraine performed admirably and struck the post through Ihor Cherniavskyi, but Zicky Té's finish with four minutes remaining ensured European and world champions Portugal progressed with a perfect record.

The results also meant Ukraine topped the three-way tiebreak for second place, their 6-1 thrashing of Serbia in their second match proving decisive.

In Group B, Finland earned their first ever European Championship victory, and the 2-1 win against Slovenia was enough to earn a place in the last eight.

Iiro Vanha put the Finns in front 33 minutes into the match in Amsterdam, before goalkeeper Juha-Matti Savolainen dramatically scored a second with the Slovenian goal unguarded.

Alen Fetić halved the deficit for Slovenia, but it was too little too late.

Finland's coach Mićo Martić, taking charge of his 100th match, was proud of his team's achievements.

"This is something important for us," Martić said.

"Maybe we didn't play a great game, but we played an important game.

"We applied what we wanted to do, like defending hard then hoping for a strange goal.

"It happened.

"We were pretty good against the power play, it was a perfect game for us.

"It was crazy, the fans really supported us, it was some kind of special feeling.

"It was a journey that Finland began [in 2013], it was well planned, we count for something in Europe now."

Group winners Kazakhstan ended Italy's hopes at Euro 2022 with Birzhan Orazov scoring twice and Azat Valiullin and Douglas Junior once in a 4-1 win.

Douglas Nicolodi had given the Italians some hope at 2-1, but they fell at the group stage as they did in 2018.

The group stage is set to conclude tomorrow, with seven-time winners Spain among the sides looking to make sure of their place in the quarter-finals against a Georgia team who have already qualified from Group D.
