The Czech national team failed to win the second match of the European Championship 2024 qualification, only drawing 0:0 in Moldova. Tomáš Souček missed his best chance in the first half when he hit the crossbar.
The Czechs didn’t start with the same intensity as against Poland, but the Moldovans created interesting standard situations. The outsiders kept the ball more in the first 20 minutes, pressed well and the Czechs struggled.
Veaceslav Posmac almost struck with a header in the 25th minute, but Vladimir Coufal intervened twice on the goal line.
On the other side, Jan Kuchta got the ball into the net, but was offside at the time of Tomáš Souček’s pass.
Subsequently, Tomas Čvančara and Holeš missed their chances. In the setup, Tomas failed for the third time, this time Souček, who hit the crossbar from a volley. The game was scoreless.
After the change of sides, the Czechs continued their misery, in the 54th minute Kuchta had a hopeful shot from the edge of the box, but the goalkeeper coped. The visitors gradually took control of the ball, but were not successful in shooting.
Adam Hložek tried his luck twice, first from the whitewash he hit the centre of the goal, then he missed the left post with his left foot. Jaroslav Šilhavý was incomprehensibly afraid of substitutions and made his first change in the 74th minute.
In the end, the Czechs did not develop the necessary pressure and played without goals on the ground of the fourth worst team according to FIFA ranking. With four points, they remain first in the group, while second-placed Poland has one point less.
