WE’VE MET BEFORE: CZECH REPUBLIC VS NORTHERN IRELAND

In four previous meetings against the Czech Republic, Northern Ireland have never won, though they did beat the old Czechoslovakia twice, in two meetings at the 1958 World Cup finals.

A goal from Wilbur Cush beat the Czechs in Sweden all those years ago, with Peter McParland netting twice in the play-offs in a 2-1 win.

They first met following the formation of the Czech Republic in 2001 in a World Cup qualifier at Windsor Park, with Pavel Nedved stealing an early winner.

In the return, in Prague, the Northern Irish were unlucky. Pavel Kuka opened the scoring but on the stroke of half time Phil Mulryne equalised. With three minutes left it was still all square, but Kuka netted an 87th minute goal before Milan Baros made it 3-1 two minutes later.

The last two clashes, both World Cup qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, ended 0-0. The first, at a wet and windy Windsor Park, saw Northern Ireland claim their first point of the qualifiers in front of 14,000 in Belfast.

And in the return, in Prague, their final qualifier ended goalless and left Northern Ireland in fourth place in their group.
