first_imgCzech RepublicTomas Vaclik 7 Had nothing to do in first half other than pick the ball out of his net. Good save with his legs to deny Kane late on.Vladimir Coufal 6 Lost his man for opening goal and looked vulnerable against pace of Sterling and Sancho. Share on WhatsApp Topics England EnglandJordan Pickford 7 Good early save to keep England in front but caught on his line for opening goal. No chance for winning goal.Kieran Trippier 6 Solid but unspectacular. With Alexander-Arnold breathing down his neck perhaps needed to be more convincing.Danny Rose 4 At fault for corner which led to goal and booked straight afterwards. Not his best night.Harry Maguire 6 Far from the dominant figure at the back he has been in the past. Looks short of confidence.Michael Keane 5 Guilty of ball watching for Brabec’s goal. Faces a battle to keep his spot for next summer.Declan Rice 5 His slip for the equalising goal compounded the earlier error. Struggled to impose himself against the intelligence of Kral.Jordan Henderson 6 Too many misplaced passes but no shortage of effort as usual. Looks more comfortable in a three-man midfield.Mason Mount 6 Started the game far too high up and barely touched the ball. Much more involved after break.Raheem Sterling 6 Did well to win early penalty but drifted out of the game after that. Failed to convert decent chance in second half.Harry Kane 7 Lovely touch to send Sterling clear in opening minutes and dispatched spot kick with aplomb this time.Jadon Sancho 6 Little chance to spread his wings but looked more comfortable on right flank in second half. Could have scored. Jordan Pickford was among England’s best performers.

Anchored midfield well in home stadium.Alex Kral 9 Spartak Moscow midfielder always seemed to have time on the ball and had the measure of England’s midfield. Almost scored.Lukas Masopust 7 Fell for Sterling’s trick to concede penalty but almost gave his side the lead with dipping and swerving shot.Vladimir Darida 8 Captain tried to provide support for Schick and set up Kral’s effort on goal with superb one-two.Jakub Jankto 7 Superb set-piece delivery caused England’s defence serious problems but less effective in open play.Patrik Schick 7 His movement proved a real headache for Maguire and Keane at times. Glides over the grass. Share on Facebook Euro 2020 qualifying Share on Pinterest Reuse this content Read more Czech Republiclast_img read more
