ENC 1B : 16 Nov : Czech Republic vs Ukraine

czech1 vs ukraine1


Venue: Stadionu mládeže, Zlín
Kick-off: 14.00 CET

The Czechs stranded at the bottom of the table, so with three tricky games left for them this is a critical game made more so by Ukraine’s win over Sweden on the 2nd. A win for Ukraine would make them safe from relegation. With Sweden only having the one game to play, against Germany, even if the Czechs lose they still have a mathematical lifeline but realistically only a win will do.

The last international played here was in October 1975 when Czechoslovakia beat Yugoslavia 28 – 3
