Czech Republic were pretty mediocre in qualifying as they finished third in their group behind Belgium and Wales.

The winner of this match will visit Poland in the play-off final.
The Poles received an automatic final berth after their opponents Russia were kicked out of the World Cup following the invasion of Ukraine.
