STUNG BY ‘CZECH CO­BRA’

Edmonton Sun - - SPORTS -

Prague — czech repub­lic for­ward Zdenek On­drasek waited more than a decade for his na­tional team de­but, but the man known as the “czech co­bra” took his chance with a late goal that se­cured a fa­mous 2-1 win over eng­land in their euro qual­i­fier on Fri­day.

the well-trav­elled 30-yearold came off the bench in the 65th minute and grabbed the win­ner five min­utes from time when he con­fi­dently fired past goal­keeper Jor­dan Pick­ford.

Harry Kane had put eng­land ahead with a penalty in the fifth minute, but the czechs drew level four min­utes later when Jakub Brabec scored.

It was eng­land’s first euro qual­i­fy­ing de­feat in 10 years.
