Southgate accepts reality Czech in Prague and promises better in Bulgaria


Gareth Southgate says England got what they deserved after the Czech Republic inflicted their first qualifying defeat in a decade. The Three Lions blew the chance to seal Euro 2020 qualification with three matches to spare as the Czechs capitalised on the visitors’ listless performance in Prague. Harry Kane’s fifth-minute penalty was as good as it got for England, with Jakub Brabec quickly levelling and substitute Zdenek Ondrasek netting a dream debut goal late on as the Czech Republic secured a memorable 2-1 comeback win.
