The statistics were hugely in favour of the Czech Republic after recording a whopping 26 goal attempts with 11 on target. At least, two goals ought to be scored from such mind-blowing figures but the Czech Republic only scored one against Georgia.

It was a game full of intensity as both teams knew a defeat for either would almost end their chances to progress.

Within the first 23 minutes, 4 big chances had already been squandered by both sides with the Czech Republic missing three chances. Georgia was under huge attack with Zuriko Davitashvili missing Georgia’s first opportunity in the game.

Deep in the injury time in the first half, Metz forward Georges Mikautadze scored a penalty to put the Minnows ahead. It was a dream lead for all Georgians as they deserved it for their gung-ho style.

Patrick Schick, Czech Republic’s main threat levelled the score with a neat finish at 59 minutes.

The game became wild, free and open for both sides as their profligacy in front of goal skyrocketed and hunted them all.

Georgia will feel extremely disappointed with Saba Lobjanidze missing a huge opportunity in the 95th minute. He riffled a shot that skimmed the top of the bar after Georgi Chakvetadze had set him up finely to make history.

It is win or bust for both teams in their last games in the group with Georgia facing the already qualified Portugal while the Czech Republic will square off against Turkey who were blown away by Portugal.
