In the first quarter final, the Czech Republic met England. Tomas Kounovsky gave the Czech Republic an early lead, which was cancelled by Lucas Toti within a minute. The Czech Republic regained the lead in the 10th minute, and kept it until the break.

The second period started with England’s equaliser, but a close-range shot from Michal Uhlir in the 26th minute handed the lead to the team in blue again, making it 3:2. Both teams were on their feet during the last minutes of the match.

But the Czech team made no mistake in the dying minutes and kept the one-goal lead to advance into the semi-finals of EMF EURO 2016.

Wales faced Croatia in the next game. A quickfire double from Tin Prpic and Zeljko Simic, in the 4th and 5th minute respectively, put Croatia in control. Both teams failed to convert possession into shooting opportunities during the rest of the first half.

Bruno Piskac scored the third goal of the game just one minute after the restart. Branimir Ceboci added a fourth to the scoresheet to give Croatia what appeared to be a comfortable lead. Wales didn’t find a consolation goal; the score stayed 0:4.

The Czech team will face the winner of the Germany – Kazakhstan game in the semi-finals, while Croatia have to wait for the outcome of the Montenegro – Bosnia & Herzegovina match.
