Czechs beat Armenia 3:0 to keep World Cup qualification hopes alive

The Czech Republic’s footballers beat Armenia 3:0 away in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday evening. The goals came from 20-year-old Matěj Vydra (who was named English Championship Player of the Year on Sunday) with a second-half brace and Daniel Kolář, who found the net in the dying seconds. The Czechs now have eight points from five games and still have a mountain to climb if they are to reach the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
