The lion cubs slipped into the third basket.  Who can they get in the main group of ME?

The championship will take place from June 21 to July 8, 2023. It is hosted by Bucharest and Cluj in Romania, and Tbilisi, Kutaisi and Batumi in Georgia.

Lvíčat coach Jan Suchopárek didn’t have a preference for which country he would rather visit after the play-off doubleheader. Since the Czechs are in the third basket, the Romanians in the second and Georgia in the last fourth, both variants are realistic.

Goalkeeper and hero of the revenge duel Matěj Kovář then expressed another wish. “There are sixteen best teams in the tournament and it doesn’t matter who we get. But it would be nice to have a lighter group so that we have a better chance to progress,” he said.

Is the last group partially repeated?

So who can the Czechs run into? In the first basket are the defending champions from Germany, Spain with the highest coefficient ever, Portugal and France. What about the opponent, great football quality. In the second part, there are England, behind whom Suchopárk’s team finished second in the qualification, Italy, the Netherlands and the aforementioned home country Romania. The teams from the final basket – Ukraine, Israel, Norway and home country Georgia – cannot be underestimated.

The lion cubs are aiming for the second championship in a row and continue their participation in the EC in 2021. There, the national team finished in third place in the basic group in competition with Spain, Italy and the home country of Slovenia and did not advance to the next stage.
