Football: Czechs face Italy in crucial World Cup qualifier

The Czech national football team faces Italy on Tuesday in a crucial qualification match for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. The Czechs, who lost to underdogs Armenia 2:1 in Prague on Friday, are ranked third in their qualification group. To keep their hopes alive of reaching the tournament in Brazil, they need to win Tuesday’s game in Italy as well as two remaining qualifiers to finish second in the group. That would give them a chance to advance to the qualification’s play-offs.
