After a 2:2 home draw with Wales in the World Championship qualifiers in Qatar, Czech footballers are no longer taking the qualifiers into their hands. Although Wales have one less game with clear candidate and group leader Belgium, Czech Republic coach Jaroslav Zelavic acknowledged that his opponent on Friday has a great squad.
The visitors continued to press to equalize the match when Jakob Peszek broke through the middle and found himself alone with the goalkeeper in the 36th minute. After the break, the Czechs took a curious lead. Ramsey returned to the defense, jumped over the King in front of his 16th position and sent the ball to goalkeeper Ward. However, the ball was passed through the ball, and then the ball was cleared by the ball. Ward tried really hard to scratch it, but she ended up in the net.
But this awarded goal was not enough for the Czechs, as David James equalized in the 69th minute. “I think the point is probably fair. The opponent was very good, we were looking, it occurred to me that the guys had heavy legs. Especially in the first half they weren’t perfect.” We didn’t get more goals from the counter-attack.” Quote coach Šilhavý portal idnes.cz.
Belgium is a clear leader of the electronic group, playing practically only second place, which guarantees participation in the play-off. The Czechs held the situation after Friday’s draw. “Wales has one less game. Although he will continue to play against strong Belgium, he has an advantage over us. But I have to commend Wales, he played very well. We have to realize that they are not a weak team at all. They have players in the Premier League. The Premier League, from the second English Premier League, they got used to the high speed they showed us, ” Šilhavý added.
The Czech national team will present itself in Belarus in the next match on Monday. “Antonin Barak received a second yellow card, so he won’t travel with us, we’ll see how good Hulich is. So we’ll make changes based on his health, and maybe we’ll have to call someone,” Czech Republic coach concluded.
Whelan’s head coach, Rob Page, was happy with the match so far, but wanted to change the lineup. “We showed an excellent performance, we had a chance to play two matches. I’m sorry we couldn’t win.” He said after the match.
