1 min read

Czech Republic have come from a goal down to upset England 2-1 in their Euro 2020 qualifying Group A meeting in Prague.

The three lions needed just 5 minutes to go ahead as captain Harry Kane scored his 7th goal in 5 qualifiers from the penalty spot.

The hosts responded 4 minutes later on a corner as Ondrej Celustka flicked the ball towards Jakub Brabec, who kneed it inside, at the far post.

Zdenek Ondrasek who came off the bench to make his debut for the hosts, scored the winner with 5 minutes remaining to hand England their first qualifying defeat in 10 years.

The result means the Czechs joined group leaders England on 12 points but sit 2nd due to goal difference.
