Gareth Southgate admits England's Czech Republic defeat is a reality check

Fikayo Tomori

Maguire has struggled to live up to his status as the world's most expensive defender since moving to Old Trafford in the summer for £80m, with the former Leicester player again noticeably below his best against the Czechs.

But the Czechs drew level four minutes later when Jakub Brabec turned the ball home at the back post after the ball fell to him when Ondrey Celustka beat Michael Keane to a corner.

Kane was mindful that the loss means England must win their game against Bulgaria on Monday to secure qualification.

Asked if there was a lack of confidence among the England defence Maguire replied: "Yes, maybe". 'We bring our club football into worldwide level. It was a hard game - we took the lead but didn't deserve to.

'In the second half we controlled the game a lot more than the first half but we gave them a sloppy goal to win the game.

Turkey Says Its Forces Pushing Deeper into Northeast Syria
And the Arab League, consisting of 22 states, is to hold an emergency meeting in Cairo on October 12 to discuss Turkey's assault. The SDF said they held off an incursion attempt near the border town of Ras al-Ain and repulsed a ground assault on Tal Abyad.

England's back line consisted of Tottenham left-back Danny Rose, Everton's Michael Keane and United centre-back Maguire, who are all enduring hard spells with their clubs in the Premier League.

However, England are aiming to go even further than the semi-final stage they reached at the World Cup and Nations League in the past two years and will need to improve markedly on an error-strewn performance in Prague.

"You are wanting to develop partnerships". Sometimes at global level you can't really do that. Meanwhile, right-back Kieran Trippier has played consistently with his new club Atletico Madrid, though he has not experienced a win with them since the start of September.

"You've got to adapt".

The escort agency AdultPrague, whose slogan is even sugestive "Because fun matters", is just one of a whole bunch of saucy agencies lurking beneath Prague's lovely historic facades and baroque bridges, and promising some guilty pleasures to lonely England fans interested in more than just football. But listen, there's no excuses. "And we certainly need to be better at keeping the ball out of the net". We need to be better than Friday night. We need to be better on the ball.
