England 2-2 Czech Republic Highlights
England rescued a fortunate draw against Czech Republic but were poor in their last game before the start of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.
Milan Baros turned England skipper John Terry and had his shot deflected in off Ashley Cole to put the Czechs ahead.
England equalised with a powerful Wes Brown header but were out-classed and outplayed by the visitors.
Marek Jankulovski restored the Czech lead with an superb free-kick before Chelsea‘s Joe Cole scrambled in a leveller.
Cole’s goal was more than England deserved and their performance will have given boss Fabio Capello plenty to think about before the qualifying campaign for the next World Cup starts against Andorra on 6 September and a game against Croatia four days later.
The Italian has made it clear he wants his side playing as a unit and the players mirroring their club form for their country.
