The Czech Republic made it four points from their first two 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers with victory against Malta in Group B.

A header from Theodor Gebre Selassie opened the scoring 11 minutes before half-time for the Czechs, who started their campaign last month with a goalless draw in Denmark. While the visitors went in at the break level courtesy of Roderick Briffa, Michal Bílek's side were quickly in front after the restart through Tomáš Pekhart. Jan Rezek's goal midway through the half confirmed the points for the hosts and Malta's third defeat in the section.
