Slovakia vs Czech Republic Team News

It is no longer news that Czech Republic’s glory days are gone. A number of high-profile players have recently retired from international football, leaving Lokomotiva’s chances in this competition in the lurch. 

Most notably, the legendary Petr Cech hung up his boots in 2018, leaving stand-in goalkeeper Kolar with huge boots to fill in. However, Jaroslav Silhavy has a few reasons to be optimistic ahead of his side’s opening fixture against Slovakia on Thursday.

Last year October, the Czech gaffer saw his side upset an in-form England side, grabbing all three points from under the noses of the Three Lions, effectively ending their 100% record in the EURO 2020 qualifiers.

In truth, Silhavy will not feel his job is under any form of threat regardless of Czech Republic’s performances in the Nations League this term. Having gotten his side over the line, and into the EURO 2020 finals, his bosses will feel he has already done enough to prove his competence.

Even though pressure is totally off his shoulders, Silhavy knows the importance of a great run in this competition, as it could help his side build momentum ahead of the upcoming EUROs. For a side that defeated England just last year, the sky is the limit for this Czech bunch.

That said, Czech’s gaffer will be wary of inconsistency as his side surprisingly fell to consecutive defeats versus Northern Ireland and Bulgaria, after their shocking victory in Britain. 

While the Czech Lions can focus solely on the Nations League over the coming months, Slovakia will rather have their eyes set on the EUROs playoffs coming up in November, starting with a clash against Republic of Ireland. 

A poor run of form in Group E saw Slovakia finish third on the standings, a point behind second-placed Slovakia. Despite tagged favorites to gain automatic qualification, a double-header defeat to Croatia and a narrow loss to Wales left the Falcons relegated to playoffs.

Pavel Hapal will be spurring his boys on to embark on a brilliant run of form over the next couple of months to put themselves in a good position as regards Nations League promotion, as well as EURO 2020 qualification.

Heading into this fixture against Czech Republic, the Falcons will be looking to build on from their credible draw against Paraguay in a friendly game last time out.
