For Jaroslav Silhavi’s team, fresh just ten days before a heavy defeat against Italy, redeemed only partly by success against modest Albania in the final Test, Group D could not get off to a better start, as Scotland lost on course. Didn’t agree Fans at Hampden Park in Glasgow. Amazingly with Adams on the bench, Clarke’s national team got off to a better start but struggled to find the door.
The first chance of the match comes around the fifteenth minute: Schick on one side tries, however, to find an attentive marshal, on the other hand Dykes Wacklick is beaten. A few minutes later, on a dangerous left foot from Robertson, the “guests” goalkeeper’s show begins, with Schick, the legendary hero of the match, finding the ‘net of advantage at 42: Kaufal’s cross from the right is accurate, The shot head from the Czech striker is unstoppable.
The recovery begins with Adams in place of the impregnable Christie, but it is the Czech Republic who touched twice in the first 90 seconds with a normal skik and then twice with Darida. Scotland, however, is not there and reacts quickly by hitting an unfortunate crossbar with Hendry in the 48th minute. A few seconds later, Vklik deflects an involuntary lob from his teammate Kalas through the door, then the moment of definite turning point: Sousek recovers the ball, Shik sees Marshall out of positions and from 50 meters to the left he hits the check.

Thus ends, 2–0 for Silhavi’s national team, who could have already put on ice the qualification for the next round against Croatia on Friday.
