European Championship qualification
EM tickets for Italy, the Czech Republic and Slovenia
Three more teams secure their tickets for the 2024 European Championship in Germany. England have already qualified and are playing poorly, but Harry Kane still has his share in the draw.
Italy, Slovenia and the Czech Republic are the next teams to qualify for the European Football Championship in Germany. The Czechs won 3-0 (1-0) against Moldova, thereby sealing their ticket to the tournament in the summer of 2024.
Slovenia won 2-1 (1-0) against Kazakhstan, a draw was enough for the Italians in the 0-0 draw against Ukraine. Thanks to Bayern striker Harry Kane, the English, who had already qualified in advance, still managed a 1-1 (0-1) draw in North Macedonia.
The Czechs, on the other hand, celebrated a deserved victory. David Doudera (14th minute), Tomas Chory (72nd) and Tomas Soucek (90th) scored the goals for the hosts, for whom a draw would have been enough.
Three Lions are having a hard time in North Macedonia
Slovenia took an early lead through RB Leipzig attacker Benjamin Sesko (20th/foul penalty). Then Ramazan Orasow (48th) scored the equalizer in Ljubljana. In the 86th minute, Benjamin Verbic scored the winning goal for the Slovenians.
Substitute Kane at least played a part in the equalizer for the weak Three Lions. Around 30 seconds after he took the ball, the Munich attacker narrowly missed a cross, but the ball then bounced off his opponent Jani Atasanov (59th) into his own goal. Enis Bardhi (41st) had previously given the hosts the lead.
