Match No. 998 - Friday, 11th October 2019, 8:45pm

  • "There was a slip from Rice in the centre, following Jakub Jankto’s corner, which allowed Ondrej Celustka to smuggle an effort towards goal and Jakub Brabec to touch home from close range." Jakub Brabec, 9'8:44
  • "The Czech substitute Zdenek Ondrasek was the match-winner, running on to Lukas Masopust’s pass to finish, as the visiting defence – not for the first time – were reduced to bystanders and England were left to contemplate a first qualification defeat since the loss to Ukraine in October 2009." Zdeněk Ondrášek, 85'84:42

  • Assist: Raheem Sterling. "England had taken an early lead and there was much to admire in the way that Mount and Kane combined to send Sterling tearing clear up the inside left channel. Kane’s first-time release was a show-stopper and so was Sterling’s cut back, which led to Masopust sweeping his legs away. Kane clipped his penalty up the middle, having waited slightly for Tomas Vaclik to commit himself." Harry Kane27th of 62 goals. Right-footed from 12 yards., 5' 04:52 (pen)
