Prague – Assistant coach Jiří Chytrý believes that the Czech footballers will dominate in Thursday’s preparatory match against Kuwait, take advantage of the opponent’s weaknesses in defense and score goals. The team will lead the head coach Jaroslav Šilhavý, who has a coronavirus. The coach will have the opportunity to enter the match over the phone, with Smart planning to call for a break.

“We have things ready for the match. We have a clear idea of ​​how we will go to the match, we have a plan and schedule. The coach will certainly have the opportunity to enter via contact on the phone if he feels the need. Otherwise we will not communicate during the match.” said at the online press conference Chytrý, who already led the team instead of Šilhavý last October in Scotland. Even then, the head coach had a coronavirus.

“We will call at halftime or I will get information about the halftime. The coach can enter the match this way so that we can transfer his observations to the team,” Chytrý added. His charges completed pre-match training in Prague and during the afternoon they move to Olomouc.

Representatives have a lot of information about Kuwait, which ranks 142nd in the FIFA rankings. “We have seen from the available materials that they are technically very advanced players. Especially for the offensive, which is their strong point, they are very handy. They can handle a small space, in difficult situations, they have a very good ending,” said Chytrý.

“We hope to apply our way of playing. We believe that we will put them under pressure and to defend them. That we will be on the balloon and dominate. We could have the upper hand there, it seems to us that the defense is a little weaker. We hope “We will force them to defend and score some goals. We assume that we will dominate, so we want to try things into the offensive game – gradual attack, solution of the final phase,” added Chytrý.

According to him, the coaches are not planning big changes in the basic line-up, because they take the match mainly as a general for Tuesday’s final duel of the qualifying group for the World Cup against Estonia. “We had to decide whether to use the match to try out the new organization of the game or to use it as a preparatory match for the match with Estonia. We chose the second option,” Chytrý said.

“We assume that for the most part the line-up will be similar. There are still posts for which we are not completely determined. It is this first match that could help us to make the right decision. One of the partial questions is the position of the striker. We know who “Tomorrow will start from the beginning, we will start it somehow and then we will use some changes to the offensive. I believe that it will tell us. This information will also affect how we decide towards Estonia,” added Chytrý.

None of the players in the current nomination have more serious health problems. “There are always some small things that we deal with all the time. Even today we had to relieve some players a bit, but if necessary, they are all able to get on,” said Chytrý.

It is possible that the Slavic goalkeeper Aleš Mandous, who came to Eden from Olomouc, where he will play on Thursday, will get a chance against Kuwait. “Aleš has a chance to start the match. Not because the match is in Olomouc, but because he is talking about it with his performances in the club,” Chytrý remarked.
