Czech Republic – England 0: 1 (0: 1)
Goal: 12. Sterling, ŽK: Bořil (Czech Republic).
They decided: Dias – Tavares, Soares (all Port.), 19.104 spectators.
CR: Vaclík – Coufal, Čelůstka, Kalas, Bořil – Masopust (64. Hložek), Darida (64. Král), Holeš (84. Vydra), Souček, Jankto (46. Šefčík) – Schick (75. Pekhart)
England: Pickford – Walker, Stones (79. Mings), Maguire, Shaw – Saka (84. Sancho), Phillips, Grealish (68. Bellingham), Rice (46. Henderson), Sterling (67. Rashford) – Kane
The English started well, played confidently and immediately pushed the opponent on the defensive. After 2 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by Vaclík might have resulted in another goal for Vacling, but Angličanov lob missed the right post.
The Czechs were passive and scored in the 12th minute, when the finely dotted center Grealisha on the back pole comfortably rebounded into the Sterling net.
The first 20 minutes clearly belonged to the home team. Only then did the Czechs recover a bit and in the 27th minute Pickš had to set off the hard bomb of Holeš perfectly.
After 35 minutes Jankto could have reduced the lead with a blistering strike from the left wing, had it not been for an excellent block by the visitors’ keeper. The home team did not lend the ball often and checked the course until the half-time whistle.
The image of the game did not change much at the beginning of the second half. Neither team attacked that high anymore.
The hosts carefully and with an overview married the platonic efforts of the guests. Although they gradually managed to get to the top sixteen of England, but not to it.
On the other side of the field, there was no penalty after pushing Maguir Bořil at the center into the Czech penalty area.
The Czechs quite often lost balls, which hampered their efforts to equalize. Pekhart could have increased the lead after 83 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park.
In the end, the Czechs changed their position, played for two attackers, but even that did not bring them success.
After 86 minutes Henderson could have reduced the lead with a blistering strike from the left wing, had it not been for an excellent block by the visitors’ keeper. The score has not changed and so the English as the winner of the group will play in Wembley again in the round of 16.

The closest goal was in this passage in the 6th minute, when McGinn sent the ball in front of the goal and Adams had very little to reach the net.
However, the reigning vice-champions of the world showed their experience. They survived the initial pressure of the opponent without damage and scored from the first opportunity.
In the 17th minute, Modrič sent a cross into the penalty area to Perišič, who won the header and “knocked” the ball to Vlašič, who had no problem scoring. The Scottish goal caught the goal for a while, but then they launched an attack again.Read more What determines the (non) procedure? This is what the Slovak line-up can look like
However, McGinn could not be found in front of Adams again in the 24th minute, and soon the goalkeeper Livakovič managed to deal with his weak shot.
At the end of the first half, the Scots no longer played as actively as in the beginning, but they still managed to equalize.
In the 42 minute, the Croatian defense kicked the ball from the penalty area only to Callum McGregor and he aimed exactly at the post.
The captain of Celtic Glasgow scored not only the premier goal of the Scots at the championship, but also his first in the 33rd start in the national team.
Both teams started the second half with the knowledge that they have to score, otherwise their performance at the championship will end.
The image of the game has changed, the Croats started to have the ball on their feet. 50 minutes into the match, Gvardiol came through the middle and almost added to his team’s lead, but the shot went wide.Read more Playing in Seville is God’s suffering. Slovaks can be successful in only one case
Perišič soon received a similarly good penetration pass, but to a close offside. The goal was scored by the world vice-champions in the 62nd minute.
After a series of passes, the ball reached Modřič, the striker of Real Madrid stretched out with an outer head and hit the gallows beautifully.
After 77 minutes, following yet another great corner, Perišič knocked the ball to the limit of Modriča’s reach, who just couldn’t put it in the net. The Scots showed effort and enthusiasm in front of their own spectators, but they lagged behind the Croats in terms of quality.
