Czech Republic welcomes England at the Sinobo Stadium in Prague in a match from Group A of the European qualifications. We will offer you a quick look at this fixture, because it’s the two best teams in the group facing each other.
England are perfect in the group so far – four wins achieved from four matches played. Gareth Southgate’s team have scored 19 goals, conceding just 4. It’d be really surprising if England don’t win this group, although if the Czech team beats them, they will get even in terms of points.
In their previous game in the group England hosted Kosovo at the Wembley and it was a pure football spectacle in the English capital. The fans saw 8 goals, which led to a 5-3 win for the Three Lions. Maybe most of them expected an easy game for the English team, but Kosovo proved to be a capable side as well.
Borussia Dortmund’s young star Jadon Sancho scored a brace for the hosts, while Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane also put the ball in the net. Kosovo’s Mergim Vojvoda scored himself an own goal. Of course, Gareth Southgate is probably worried that his boys conceded three goals in London, but maybe they underrestimated their opponents a litle bit.
Czech Republic are second in this group with 9 points won so far. They are just three points behind the leader England, but they also have played a game more. So far the Czech side lost twice in this group – against England and against Kosovo.
In March the Czech team visited England at the Wembley and got crushed with a heavy 0-5 defeat. Now Jaroslav Silhavy’s team will try to avenge this defeat, but it’d be a hard task.
Although England are a clear favourite agianst Czech Republic, we believe that the hosts could offer a good fight to the Three Lions. Maybe we will see a surprise here?
