Five-star Chramosta takes Czechs to brink

Andorra 1-5 Czech Republic
Jan Chramosta scored a record-equalling five goals to leave the Czech Republic needing just one point from their last two games to win Group 3.

Jan Chramosta scored a record-equalling five goals as the Czech Republic moved to the verge of a place at the UEFA European Under-21 Championship.

Jakub Dovalil's side dominated throughout in Andorra, with Chramosta taking full advantage of some enterprising wing play. He broke the deadlock midway through the first half and by the interval he had a hat-trick, but the FK Mladá Boleslav striker was not done.

On 69 minutes he made it a 'poker' as four-goal hauls are known in these parts and after Luigi San Nicolas' consolation for the hosts Chramosta struck his fifth, a feat matched in this competition only by Serbia's Gojko Kačar against Hungary in September 2008. The result leaves the Czechs six points clear at the Group 3 summit with just two games to play.
