Czech Republic take on Northern Ireland on Sunday 4th September, 2016, with kickoff at 19:45. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 2.
The Czechs are one of the most reliable and consistent teams in all of European football, delivering again and again on the talent in their squad, and sometimes despite the apparent lack of the same, so this will be a big test for Northern Ireland. They had a magical summer in France, and will be looking forward to trying to build on that with a good performance in these qualifiers for the next World Cup.
The important thing is not to start with a heavy loss, so don’t expect the most open or adventurous game here, especially so early in the campaign.
