Czech Republic vs. England
The Czech Republic and England face off at Wembley in a highly anticipated game that could potentially see the English finish third and secure qualification through being one of the best third-placed teams. Will England finally kick into gear and perform as they should be , or will the Czech's hold onto their number one spot?
The Czech's come into this bout off the backs of two impressive performances, a 0-2 win against Scotland and a very even 1-1 against Croatia. The Czech Republic are dangerous going forward, a factor both Scotland and Croatia experienced with the red-hot Patrik Schick bagging three beautiful goals in total including a potential goal of the tournament against Scotland. Other stars such as Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal are also performing at very high levels, meaning England will have to keep an extra eye on the trio.
Coach Jaroslav Silhavy and co. lost to England at Wembley with 5-0 when the pair were grouped together during the qualifiers for the Euro's but actually beat the English with 2-1 during the return leg in Prague meaning that they are, despite not having home advantage, capable of causing an upset come Tuesday evening.
The Czech have already qualified for the round of 16 due to having accrued four points guaranteeing them passage as one of the best third placed teams at the least. This means that the Czech's can play rather care-free and soak up the fact that they will be playing at Wembley in front of a crowd.
English fans are not happy following a very drab and uninspired performance in their 0-0 draw against Island-rivals Scotland. However, rather large parts of their 1-0 win against Croatia in the opener were seriously impressive and showcased the potential this young England team has.
The English, as their Tuesday night opponents, are guaranteed a spot in the round of 16 as one of the best third placed teams but it is most definitely expected that due to the talent within the squad, they should win the group. Furthermore, if Southgate wants to avoid even more negativity due to his tinkering and refusal to play Jack Grealish, his lineups better start producing more.
The goalless draw against Scotland was the first time England have failed to score in seven games meaning that despite not being urgent enough against Scotland, they are usually potent in front of goal. With the prolific Harry Kane up top as well as the quality of midfielders behind him, i believe it is a question of not if, but when England start producing more goals.
I believe England have what it takes to beat a strong Czech team, especially with the backing of the home fans, which is why i will be backing England to win at 1.57 with Betway.
Score prediction = 1-2
