On Friday we are looking at Group A and Czech Republic hosting England. England’s performance is getting better for each game under Gareth Southgate and England is having a lot of exciting talents knocking on the door. The Three Lions has won their first four games of Euro 2020 Qualification comfortably and will probably win the group. The Czech Republic will fight with Kosovo for the remaining ticket to the European Championships next summer. However, previous meeting between these two teams resulted in a 5-0 win for England at Wembley, so the Czechs might lose the second place in the group to Kosovo depending on their results against Montenegro.
The Czech Republic have averaged just under two goals per game in their qualification fixtures, but they have scored for five consecutive games since their defeat at Wembley 5-0. Having scored at least once in 16 of their last 20 international matches, it’s clear that the Czech Republic have players in their squad that can open defenses, so we might see a Czech goal on Friday.
Czech Republic: Last five games: (3-0-2)
26 Mar 2019 Czech Republic v Brazil 1-3 International Friendly
07 Jun 2019 Czech Republic v Bulgaria 2-1 Euro 2020 Qualification

07 Sep 2019 Kosovo v Czech Republic 2-1 Euro 2020 Qualification
10 Sep 2019 Montenegro v Czech Republic 0-3 Euro 2020 Qualification
England have scored 19 goals across their opening four group games, a total that makes them the joint highest scorers in qualifying alongside Belgium, having played two games less. Even though England’s offensive qualities, they have shown some poor qualities when it comes to their defense, and England were unable to keep a clean sheet in two of their last three Group A fixtures.
