Defeat for Kalas’ Czech Republic

Tomas Kalas completed 90 minutes for Czech Republic as they fell to a 5-0 defeat to England in their opening Euro 2020 qualifier.

Raheem Sterling broke the deadlock midway through the first half and Harry Kane doubled the advantage for Gareth Southgate’s side on the stroke of half-time when he converted his spot-kick.

Sterling netted his second with a composed finish on 62 minutes, before he completed his hat-trick six minutes later with a deflected 20-yard strike.

On a difficult night in the capital, England added a fifth six minutes from time when Callum Hudson-Odoi’s driven shot was palmed away by Jiri Pavlenka, straight into Kalas, who inadvertently turned the ball into his own net.

After the first round of Group A fixtures, which Montenegro, Bulgaria and Kosovo are also competing in, Czech Republic currently sit at the foot of the table on goal difference.

Kalas and his international teammates now travel to Prague and will prepare to host Brazil in a friendly on Tuesday evening (March 26th, 7.45pm KO).
