|Date & Time||Friday October 11, 2019, 2:45 PM (EDT)|
England will play their next Euro qualifier away from home in Prague where they will face the Czech Republic.
England are well situated on the standings as they are top of Group A with 4 wins from their 4 games. In their last outing, England defeated Kosova 5-3 at home. Jadon Sancho showed his class by scoring 2 goals while the likes of Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling also contributed with goals. It was a dominant display by the Three Lions as they controlled close to 60% of the possession and had 10 shots on target. England are very comfortably placed and the team is filled with confidence. It is going to be hard to stop England in this group.
On the other side of the coin, the Czech Republic are second in Group A with 9 points from 5 games. The Czech Republic defeated Montenegro 3-0 at home in their last fixture. It was a comfortable win for the Czech team as they had the majority of the ball and only allowed their opponents 3 shots on target. All 3 goals were scored in the second half. As it currently stands, the Czech Republic are only 1 point above Kosova meaning that the team must continue to win matches to ensure they remain in the top 2. This is expected to be a tough match for the Czech Republic but the team will be optimistic as they are playing at home.
England are the stronger side and have a much stronger squad with the likes of Rashford, Vardy, and Kane. That being said, Prague is a tough place to visit and the Czech have a very strong record at home. It is hard to see the Czech Republic having enough quality to win this match but I see them fighting to get a point. I am predicting that this match will end as a draw.
