Czech striker Chramosta ends Armenia's great start

Armenia 0-2 Czech Republic The home side's unbeaten start in Group 3 came to an end as Jan Chramosta came off the bench to score twice in the closing stages.

The Czech Republic remain on top in UEFA European Under-21 Championship qualifying Group 3 after inflicting a first defeat on Armenia courtesy of two late goals from substitute Jan Chramosta.

The FK Mladá Boleslav striker came on at half-time and decided the match in the closing stages. On 76 minutes, he scored with a powerful header after Arsen Petrosyan had blocked Marek Hanousek's effort, and he added to his tally two minutes into added time after beating three defenders. Armenia will join Jakub Dovalil's side on ten points, however, if they can beat Wales at home on Tuesday.

Armenia made a decent start, and Marek Štěch in the Czech goal had to save from Artak Aleksanyan's shot midway through the opening period. Vladimír Darida had a good chances to put the visitors in front either side of the break, and Václav Kadlec then danced past two defenders but failed to find the target as the game entered its last 20 minutes. The Czechs were on top and Chramosta ensured that the pressure paid.
