England V Czech Republic
20 Aug 2008
England 2 - 2 Czech Republic
England rescued a fortunate draw against Czech Republic 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 apowerful Wes Brown header. Marek Jankulovski restored the Czech lead with a superb free-kick.
Joe Cole struck in injury time to ensure England ended their preparations for the beginning of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers with a 2-2 draw. Fabio Capello's side face back to back away qualifiers against Andorra and Croatia in September as they begin their quest to reach South Africa in two years' time.
England, underthe full time captaincy of John Terry, looked to be heading for defeat, but Joe Cole was the saviour as he scrambled in from close range in time added on.
Capello goes into next month;s qualifiers against Andorra and Croatis with plenty to think about.
