England vs Czech Republic match preview

Published

on

THE qualifying campaign for Euro 2020 begins, and having been drawn in a group along with Czech Republic, Montenegro, Bulgaria, and Kosovo it’s fair to say that the Three Lions are the firm favourites for the top spot.

Czech Republic are arguably the most competitive of the other sides at the moment, so Friday marks a perfect opportunity to get the campaign off on the right foot.

England certainly showed no signs of drawing back in on themselves after their World Cup run. They lost against Spain in their first UEFA Nations League match, but they went on to win four of their five following games and topped their UEFA Nations League group.

It’s hard to compare the two squads in terms of ability, and it’s shown in some of Czech Republic’s results. They failed to make the grade in World Cup qualification and have since lost five of their last 10 games, including a 4-0 thrashing by Australia and a 5-1 loss to Russia.

Considering England’s current form, we’re expecting a strong showing from them. The celebrations could start early too – England have been ahead at the break in six of their last nine victories and they’re facing a Czech side who have been behind at half time in six of their last seven away defeats. This makes an England Win at Half-Time / Full-Time look a very good option, along with a 2-0 correct score prediction.

Harry Kane is undoubtedly the main man in the England attack. The Spurs striker has scored 20 goals in 35 appearances for England and finished as the top scorer in the 2018 World Cup with six goals, so we’re backing him to get on the scoresheet here.

Prediction: England to win
