Match summary  

England remained unbeaten under Sarina Weigman but ends a 15-game winning streak. England could not find a way through this resilient Czech Republic defence. Lauren James was a livewire throughout the game in her first senior start for Lionesses. She and Lauren Hemp hit the post in each half, those were the closest chances England had to score. Czech Republic defended well when needed to and had attempts to scare the England defence. England will be disappointed about the finishing and lack of quality in the final third as they are normally clinical in front of goal. It ends in a stalemate; this is only the 2nd time they have not scored.
