England v Czech Republic Preview
England get one of their two toughest games in this Euro 2020 qualification group out of the way first of all. Things are looking positive for England at the moment on the back of their World Cup 2018 semi-final run and their group victory in the Nations League over Croatia and Spain. So there is plenty of optimism around the Three Lions at the moment. Boss Gareth Southgate called up more youth into the squad with Declan Rice and Callum Hudson-Odoi getting their first calls. England are undefeated in their last five games, winning four of those.
England have scored at least two goals in each of their last three international fixtures. They have banked a clean sheet in three of their last five as well. In their home games in the competitive Nations League fixtures, England suffered a 2-1 reverse against Spain before beating Croatia in their final group stage match at Wembley. England came from behind with goals from Jesse Lingard and Harry Kane in the last 12 minutes to give them the win they needed to top the group. England have lost one of their last 18 home internationals. They also completed qualification campaigns for Euro 2016 and the World Cup 2018 with perfect home records.
The Czech Republic last met England back in a 2008 friendly and that game ended in a 2-2 draw. Their previous meeting had been a decade earlier with England winning 2-0 at home in a friendly. In last year’s Nations League the Czech Republic finish second in their group behind Ukraine. In their away games they suffered a defeat in Ukraine and earned a one-goal margin win in Slovakia. The Czech Republic have taken three wins in their last five, but the two wins over Slovakia were only by a one-goal margin. Each of their last three games played have produced a 1-0 scoreline, with the Czech Republic winning two of those. The Czech Republic did struggle during World Cup 2018 qualification away from home, only managing to take victories at Azerbaijan and San Marino.
