      17. Half time verdict: Czechia dominated the possession and shot count throughout the first half and will be disappointed that they were unable to convert one of their opportunities.

      28. The home crowd are off their feet as they think Vydra’s effort has put them ahead, but the ball ripples the side netting.

      29. A good move from the home sides sees Vydra drift into the penalty area but Bevan throws his body in the way of the shot to prevent it from troubling Beach.
