The Czech Republic finished their 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying Group B campaign on a high, beating Bulgaria in Sofia to come third in the section.

Bulgaria had begun the day second in the standings with hopes of a play-off place, but Bořek Dočkal's second-half goal was enough for an away win. Petar Zanev saw red for Luboslav Penev's men, leaving them with too much to do, and they wound up in fourth position behind Italy, Denmark and their Czech conquerors.
