Germany want power show, Czechs eye ‘little miracle’

Berlin (AFP) – Germany want a show of power in Saturday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against a Czech Republic side hoping for ‘a little miracle’ against the world champions. “We’re playing against a team that can only be defeated in exceptional circumstances. We hope for a little miracle,” Czech coach Karel Jarolim told German magazine Kicker.

Czech stars fined for ‘go back to kitchen’ woman ref blast

Prague (AFP) – Two Czech internationals were fined Thursday for telling a female referee to “go back to the kitchen” after she failed to whistle for an offside decision. Sparta Prague goalkeeper Tomas Koubek and midfielder Lukas Vacha were each fined 40,000 koruna (1,500 euros) and ordered to conduct a training session for the club’s junior side for their outbursts after Sunday’s 3-3 draw with Zbrojovka Brno.

Northern Ireland hold Czechs to goalless draw

Prague (AFP) – Northern Ireland opened their World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign with a goalless draw against Group C rivals the Czech Republic in Prague on Sunday. Playing their first competitive game since their 1-0 defeat to Wales in the last-16 phase of Euro 2016, Northern Ireland relied on solid defence and breakaways throughout the game. In their best scoring chance of a rather dull first half, Paddy McNair saw his low shot stopped by Czech keeper Tomas Vaclik. The Czechs never managed to put the defensive visitors under real pressure during the first 45 minutes. Pavel Kaderabek, Milan Skoda ... Read more

Cech ends international football career

Prague (AFP) – Veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech has announced his retirement from international football after a record 124 games for the Czech Republic over an eventful 14-year career. “I would hate to end up in a situation when I would start feeling tired midway through a qualifying campaign,” the 34-year-old told reporters in Prague on Friday. “I like to do things at a 100 percent.” “The decision is final.” “I feel there will be a moment when I will need more time to rest,” said the former Chelsea and current Arsenal stopper. Cech played all three games for the Czech ... Read more

Czech coach Vrba quits national team, signs up with Anzhi

Prague (AFP) – Coach Pavel Vrba is leaving the Czech Republic national team after signing up with Russian top-flight side Anzhi Makhachkala, the Czech Football Association said Thursday. “We can only respect the wish of the coach who wants to try a job abroad,” Czech FA chief Miroslav Pelta said in a statement.
