National football team faces Canada in friendly

The Czech national football team faces Canada in a friendly on Friday afternoon – ten years to the day the two squads last met. The match is the Czech team’s last of the season. The last time the Czech Republic and Canada met, the Czechs won 5:1. The match is expected to be the last for interim manager Josef Pešice who took over from Michal Bílek after the Czechs failed to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Under Pešice, the squad won the final two qualification matches against Malta and Bulgaria.
