Euro 2020 qualifiers – One match doesn’t make a career, England is gone, Ondrasek said

Attacker Zdenek Ondrasek spent a dreaming debut in the national team in October, as a substitute player scored a victory goal for the Czech team in the European qualification home win 2: 1 over England. Football fans can book Czech Republic Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

However, the fans’ big expectations are not admitted before Thursday’s key duel with Kosovo. After the club season in the US, he did not play a match since October 19, but he believes he is ready. He was also helped by the fact that he trained with the former club Wisla Krakow.

Euro 2020 qualifiers – Ondrasek said One match doesn’t make a career England is gone

“As I said after the match with England, it was great, unbelievable. But one match doesn’t make a career, I won’t live all my life. It was nice, but it’s over. Now it’s a new match, completely different. For me, Kosovo is the biggest goal now. Life has not changed my life, maybe my family was a little happier and my friends congratulated, but that’s all, ” Ondrasek told reporters.

Of course, I was aware of the increased interest, but I know how it is. It doesn’t have to take all the time, it can turn with a snap of a finger. Immediately after the match with England, he was cooled by the elimination of his Dallas in prolonging the first round of the MLS playoffs from the later Seattle winner. 

“I enjoyed England for a couple of days, but a cold shower came in just a week after we dropped out in the playoffs. So upside-down. We were very disappointed because we didn’t play a bad match at all. It turned out to be the magic of playoff. But I saw better teams in MLS than they did, ” Ondrasek said.

After the end of the season he kept on training.”I had to train myself for a week because the MLS rules are such that when you quit, the team, including the coaches, must be free. Wislou Krakow. I had more time to compare with the time shift. I feel good and of course I lack matches, I can not wait. If I get a chance, I look forward to the course, ” Ondrasek said.

In the absence of injured Patrik Schick, the coach Jaroslav Silhavy will decide to attack between Ondrasek and Michael Krmencik. Everybody wants to show the trainer that he is well prepared in the training. We haven’t had a one-on-one fight (with Krmencik) yet, but we can clearly see that we all want to show the best. Ondrasek smiled, referring to the nickname he was given while working in Ceske Budejovice.

In the US, he has completed his first season and does not consider changing his jersey. 

“I already bought a ticket for January. I have a contract for a year, Dallas has an option. I didn’t even think I shouldn’t go there,” he said.

On Sunday, the Czech team will finish the qualification in Bulgaria and will start for the first time in a new set of outdoor jerseys, which has a bright green color.

“I wanted to put such a color on my head at the age of 13 or 15, fortunately my dad didn’t allow it. Then I shaved my head,” Ondrasek entertained.

It’s different, I hear from friends and family that it’s maybe even shocking. They’ve always been red, blue, and white. But it’s still the same in every pitch on the pitch. But with pink, I could have a little different he added with a smile.

The Czech Republic head into this potentially pivotal group came second in the table, but ahead of Kosovo by just one point. A victory would see the home side qualify for next year’s European Championships. Football fans can book Czech Republic Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

They will be keen to add a crucial fifth win in the qualifying campaign to seal their place at Euro 2020. The home side has been prolific in those qualifying wins in the group, scoring at least two goals in each victory. Their last seven qualifiers dating back to 2015 have produced over 2.5 goals.

The Czech Republic’s home record in qualifying for the European Championships has also been good of late, as they have won seven of their last nine qualifiers on home soil, suffering just one defeat in the process. Their attacking prowess has been illustrated at home by them scoring at least two goals in four of their last five matches on home soil.

Kosovo Euro 2020 qualifiers:

Kosovo has been one of the surprise packages of Euro 2020 qualifying so far. This is their first every qualification campaign for an international tournament, but they head into the penultimate game of the group still with a chance of qualifying. To say the visitors have acquitted themselves well in Group A would be an understatement.

Czech-Republic-Euro-Cup-2020
Euro 2020 qualifiers – The Czech Republic is ahead of Kosovo by just one point

In fact, they have won three of their last four group games, with the only defeat coming in a 5-3 defeat against England at Wembley. The fact that they have been fearsome going forward has certainly helped the Kosovans stay in touch with the top two, as the visitors have scored at least two goals in each of their last four qualifiers.

They have also scored in all six of their qualifiers for Euro 2020. As they are ion their first-ever qualification campaign, Kosovo has played just three away games, enjoying mixed fortunes by winning one, drawing one and losing one of their three games on their travels. Both teams have scored in all three of the visitors away qualifiers.

Conclusion

This game has so much riding on it. However, we are backing the Czech Republic to record a victory at odds of 4/6. Their home advantage could prove massive. Judging by the two team’s recent qualifiers, we are expecting goals, so we are backing over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 21/20.

Euro 2020 qualifying: What the actual fixtures are???

Permutations are fun, and a word almost exclusively saved for attempts to make sense of contrived qualification campaigns for major football championships. It just so happens that one is coming towards its conclusion you might have noticed. The field for Euro 2020 is taking shape and, with 1 week of games left, the scenarios are becoming rather more clear.

Every country now has either 1 or 2 games left to play in next month’s final international break. The top 2 teams from each of the 10 groups will qualify automatically, with 6 of those 20 spots already taken. Football fans can book England Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

Euro qualifiers – England need 1 point against Montenegro or Kosovo to qualify for main round

The remaining four places will then be decided by those darn Nations League-based play-offs. So let’s take a look at who should start clearing their schedules for the continent’s ambitious 24-team party next year.

Who has already qualified for Euro 2020?
Ukraine and Italy have booked their spots as guaranteed winners of Groups B and J respectively. Spain in Group F, Poland in G, Belgium and Russia both in Group I will join them at Euro 2020, but whether they finish top or 2nd in their groups is yet to be decided.

Who is likely to join them for Euro 2020?
England, who need a point at home to Montenegro or away at Kosovo next month. They would even qualify if they lose at Wembley, provided the Czech Republic’s game with Kosovo does not end in a draw. Portugal will emerge from Group B, alongside winners Ukraine, with victories against Lithuania at home and Luxembourg away.

Netherlands and Germany both know that avoiding defeat in 1 of their 2 final games against Northern Ireland will be enough in Group C, as long as they win their other matches against Estonia and Belarus respectively. Football fans can book Germany Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

Switzerland is 3rd but in the best position of a complicated Group D.If Switzerland gets at least 4 points against Georgia at home and Gibraltar away, they will qualify for Euro 2020. Croatia must avoid defeat against Slovakia in their remaining game to make it out of Group E.Austria need just a point at home to North Macedonia to qualify behind Poland from Group G.

The top spots in Group H will go to Turkey if they avoid defeat at home to Iceland and even if they lose that game then beat Andorra and France if they beat Moldova. Finland will join Italy at the finals their first-ever with a win at home to Liechtenstein, or if Bosnia fails to beat Italy.

What about the other automatic spots for Euro 2020?
Czech Republic qualifies from Group A if they defeat 3rd placed Kosovo next month. Kosovo must win that game, then draw at home to England in their last match, to take their place. Football fans can book Czech Republic Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

Serbia is relying on the unlikely event of Portugal failing to beat either Lithuania or Luxembourg. If the reigning champions do falter, winning their games against Luxembourg and Ukraine would be enough for Serbia to emerge from Group B.Northern Ireland will likely have to beat both Netherlands and Germany, with either of those teams dropping points in their other games.

If they do beat both but Netherlands and Germany pick up expected wins against Estonia and Belarus respectively, Group C’s top 3 will all finish on 18 points. Head-to-head goal difference would then be used, which could still rule Northern Ireland who has previously lost to both Germany and Netherlands by 2 goals each out.

Sweden faces the Faroe Islands in their last qualifier, so a draw against Romania would put them through, provided they then predictably beat one of Group F’s whipping boys. Football fans can book Sweden Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

Romania takes 2nd spot by beating Sweden a game they would have to win 1-0 or by 2 goals to be clear on the head to head if they draw their final match in Spain. Winning both games takes Romania through. Norway is relying on a number of results, including the Faroe Islands beating Sweden, to have any hope.

North Macedonia must beat second-placed Austria, then win against Israel at home while Austria loses to Latvia, who have lost all eight of their games in Group G so far. Even if Austria draw against Latvia, North Macedonia would have to overcome the 4-1 defeat they suffered to Austria in June to go above them on a head-to-head basis.

Slovenia is also relying on some mental results, such as winning away at Poland and Austria losing both their games. Iceland faces Turkey and Moldova and must win both games to stand a chance in Group H. Even then, either Turkey would have to draw or lose to Andorra, or France get no more than one point against Moldova and Albania, for Iceland to make it and knock England out in the last-16 again.

Both Bosnia and Herzegovina have to beat Italy and Liechtenstein, with Finland also picking up no more than one point against Liechtenstein and Greece, to join Italy from Group J.

England stand firm in face of disgusting racism as they defeat Bulgaria on the night of shame in Sofia

England left Bulgaria with 3 points, 6 goals, and surely 1 line finally drawn in the sand. This Euro 2020 qualifier has to be a watershed moment, a seminal moment when this abhorrent racist abuse as the Football Association immediately called it in their statement demanding a Uefa investigation has to stop.

England acted with utter dignity and professionalism throughout, with the game stopped twice in the first-half because of the abuse, and sent out a message to the world beyond the emphatic score-line of England 6 Racists 0. Football fans can book England Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

Euro 2020 – England stand firm in face of disgusting racism as they defeat Bulgaria on the night of shame in Sofia

They could have walked off unilaterally and no-one would surely have disagreed if they did. They steadfastly followed the Uefa protocols, they reported what they heard and they made their point with their football and their impeccable behavior in Euro 2020.

Croatian referee Ivan Bebek did give England the option of leaving the pitch for 10 minutes after the second incident on 43 minutes. It was so close to half-time, Gareth Southgate said he would wait until then and speak to his players in the dressing room.

After what had happened in Montenegro when Sterling and Danny Rose were abused in Euro 2020, they must have been sorely tempted to take their own action. No-one could dispute that and the England manager was as dignified as ever even if, at times, he looked like he had had enough.

“I know whatever we do might be perceived as not being enough but we have made a major statement,” Southgate rightly said.

Euro 2020 – Racist abuse dominates England’s 6-0 win over Bulgaria

But the players wanted to continue the England Euro Cup match. They wanted to finish it, win the game and not let the racists triumph in the England Euro Cup match and they did that emphatically. There were 6  goals. There could have been 10.

In the back of their minds, there will have been a desire to bounce back from the disappointing defeat against the Czech Republic in England Euro Cup match and their powers of concentration were remarkable. Now the pressure has to be relentless on the authorities to act and we are not talking about paltry fines or point deductions.

The Czech Republic has to play its next Euro 2020 qualifier matches against Kosovo and Bulgaria. Football fans can book Czech Republic Euro Cup Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

It was utterly appalling and the only measure is to throw Bulgaria, with their ridiculous denials, out of the competition of Euro 2020. This is, was and always will be completely unacceptable. There has to be no compromise. Tyrone Mings, on his England debut, was the first to report the racism in England Euro Cup match.

What a tainted evening of mixed emotions for the indomitable defender who was outstanding.It was also directed at Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford with monkey chants while some Bulgarian fans were clearly shown doing Nazi salutes with members of the FA’s backroom staff visibly upset in England Euro Cup match.

The Bulgarians suffering a partial stadium closure because of a previous racist incident. They were warned before kick-off with a tannoy message and then with 2 more announcements during the first-half with matters even more confused by Bulgarian fans apparently fighting among themselves in England Euro Cup match.

A group of 50 black-shirted fans from Plovdiv the so-called lauta army forced to leave the stadium during the England Euro Cup match. The racists were embarrassed with this crushing result with the Bulgarian coach Krasmir Balakov asked questions about why his team played like football “dwarves”.

The Bulgarian nation suffered their biggest ever defeat in a qualifier with some devastating play by England during the England Euro Cup match.With Kosovo beating Montenegro England have to wait a little longer to qualify for Euro 2020. France’s draw with Russia in their group means if they do win their final 3 matches they will definitely be seeded next summer.

It is hard to write about the actual football but because the England players said they wanted to be recognized for this during the England Euro Cup match and the way they performed it does need to be documented. Bulgaria was taken apart. Rashford, one of five changes from Prague, opened the scoring as he collected the ball from Ross Barkley, another.

Rashford feinted to cross, cut back inside and struck a powerful right-foot cross-shot that caught out goalkeeper Plamen Iliev. The second goal was even more impressive. There was a patient build-up, wonderfully constructed with Sterling and Kane quickening the pace with an exchange of passes during the England Euro Cup match.

This exchange of passes ended with Sterling firing in a cross that Ross Barkley turned into the net at the far post in England Euro Cup match.

Euro 2020 Qualifiers – England vs Czech Republic

England begins its campaign for the UEFA European Championship 2020 on Friday as the Czech Republic heads for Wembley Stadium. Fans have bought their Czech Republic Euro Cup Tickets and hoping for their favorite players to perform well in the tournament.

The Three Lions have qualified for the semi-finals of the UEFA League of Nations and hope to build on this success by winning in the first day of Group A qualifiers Euro 2020.

The Czech team comes in good form after two consecutive victories, but it appears weaker on the road. Jaroslav Silhavy’s team was beaten 5-1 by Russia in a friendly international match last September, and England will think they can score goals against their first opponent group.

England has already felt the pressure to produce a gold generation full of talent. Despite this, expectations are high for Gareth Southgate’s team.

Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling have become two of the most popular players in Europe. The offensive duo will offer guests enviable options at the national stadium.

With Dele Alli, Jadon Sancho and Callum Hudson-Odoi also on the team, Southgate really holds one of the most talented collectives in the league. Kane has become a talismanic figure for his country and Tottenham Hotspur’s ace has the leadership qualities required by England.

According to Sky Sports’ Matthew Treadwell, Kane was pleased with the evolution of the English team over the past 12 months.

People expect us to do well, and before the World Cup, there were no expectations, it’s great that we’ve reversed the situation, and it’s up to us, players, to take advantage of this experience we had to manage expectations now, I think we have managed very well the weight of expectations since the World Cup.

I think we are only going to get into the semi-finals of the World Cup to get their country together. [Croatia and Spain]. That was great for us, to prove that we are not just a one-off and that we are building for something really special in the future.

Kane’s supporting cast is what makes this Three Lions side much stronger than previous incarnations.

Pep Guardiola has developed into a world-class attacker at Manchester City and Sancho has quickly proved to be one of the most exciting players in the Bundesliga with Borussia Dortmund.

Euro 2020 Qualifiers - England vs Czech Republic

The Czech Republic lacks the quality they had of yesteryear, but they remain the biggest obstacle to England in the group phase. The away side lack any star power. Southgate’s men should dominate possession from the opening kick-off.

Patrik Schick is developing an impressive player for the Czech Republic, with the 23-year-old finding playing time in Serie A on loan at Roma. He has only scored three goals in this league but matched his country in the League.

The onus is on England to perform, and Southgate will look for his team to play with control and discipline, despite his wealth of forwarding wizardry.

The Three Lions will expect to maintain a 100 percent record in the group stages until the finals.

Eight Czech fans arrested for their drone flight project at the Euro 2020 qualifier

Police in Kosovo arrested eight Czech soccer fans who apparently planned to fly a drone carrying a pro-Serb banner during Saturday’s Euro 2020 qualifier between Kosovo and the Czech Republic. Sports fanatics from all over the world can buy Czech Republic Euro Cup Tickets online to enjoy its stunning performances.

The Czech Press Federation announced that six men and two women had been arrested near the Kosovo capital, Pristina, where the match is taking place. The local police seized a drone, a Serbian flag and a banner with the inscription “Kosovo is Serbia”, as well as fireworks and a knife, in two cars with a license plate Czech.

The Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that the arrests took place on Friday and that the eight people, one of whom was also a Serbian national, were released on Saturday morning. Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008, but the Serbian government refused to recognize the sovereign status of the new country.

Security measures are strict around the stadium during the preparation of the match, which begins at 15:00 local time (14:00, Paris time). Fans can bring flags to Group A play but many other items are banned.

An online group for Kosovo supporters, known as Dardanet, called on supporters to show “maturity and restraint,” adding: “Any potential incident would harm Kosovo.”

The population of Kosovo is predominantly Albanian. In October 2014, a qualifying match for Euro 2016 between Serbia and Albania in Belgrade was abandoned after the drone flying over the field.

The drone carried a flag indicating that Kosovo was part of “Greater Albania” and was causing a massive fight between the players. Albania finally won a 3-0 victory by default.

In the match, Kosovo beat the Czech Republic 2-1. Patrick Schick opened the scoring when he finished a good shot, but Vedat Muriqi canceled it four minutes later and Mërgim Vojvoda completed the turnaround.

The victory meant that Kosovo was ahead of the Czech Republic and briefly outpaced Group A before England came back to the top by beating Bulgaria at Wembley. The win still gives Kosovo the advantage over its opponents in what looks like a two-horse race for second place qualifying.
