How does that 1-1 draw leave Group F?

Georgia vs Czech Republic live updates (14)

UEFA

A point apiece doesn't do much at all for Georgia or Czech Republic as they occupy the bottom two places in Group F.

It is, however, good news for the other two teams who meet in Dortmund in less than an hour's time. A win for either Portugal or Turkey will guarantee top spot.

Czech Republic left dejected

Czech Republic had 62 per cent possession and 27 shots in that game, totalling 3.11 xG.

And yet they only scored once and are forced to settle for a point. It has to be said that they came up against a goalkeeper in unbelievable form, but that will be no consolation for the Czech players.

With just one point from two matches, they now need a result against Turkey in their final group-stage game to have a chance of progression.

But Georgia have earned a vital point

If you had offered Georgia a point at any stage in that final half hour, they would have taken it all day long.

But, in the end, it is they who are left gutted out on the pitch after Lobzhanidze's miss with the final kick of the game. I can't begin to imagine the pressure on the 29-year-old in that situation, but he had to score.

Another cracking game at Euro 2024 and it must be said that Georgia have done brilliantly to earn a point there.

Lobzhanidze misses a huge chance for Georgia at the death!

FT Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

That was the chance to win it!

The moment of Lobzhanidze's career after a lightning-fast counter attack from Georgia. But, after being found by Chakvetadze, he lifted his effort from 12 yards over the crossbar.

Almost the greatest smash and grab of all time from the Georgians in Hamburg!

Poor Coufal cross lets Georgia off

90+3' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

I haven't been able to say it many times today, but the most recent Coufal cross from the right wing was terrible. It landed almost out of play on the other side of the pitch and allowed Georgia to relieve the pressure again.

Czech Republic have shown a real lack of quality in the last 10 or 15 minutes of this match.

90+1' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

Five more minutes for either of these two teams to find a winning goal.

It's hard to imagine that Georgia will have any more chances, but who knows at this tournament!

Georgia substitutions have eased the pressure

90' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

The changes made from the bench have really helped the Georgia cause.

If nothing else, they have delayed the Czech Republic rhythm as they haven't had to face as many shots or crosses in the last few minutes.

Lobzhanidze coming on for Georgia has helped them get up the pitch to relieve some of the pressure.

Goalscorer Mikautadze replaced

88' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

As Georgia waited to take their first corner of the second half, their goalscorer was withdrawn.

Mikautadze off and Giorgi Kvilitaia on. Oh, and they conceded a foul as soon as the corner was delivered.

More Czech Republic pressure awaits...

85' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

25 shots for Czech Republic so far, and an inexplicable number of crosses into the box.

Georgia have coped very well with the danger, to their credit, but there are a lot of weary bodies in their backline now.

83' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

And that is the end of Kvaratskhelia's afternoon — what a shift he has put in for Georgia.

He and Kvirkvelia leave the pitch for Girogi Gvelesiani and Saba Lobzhanide.

For Czech Republic: Atonin Barak and Petr Sevcik have replaced Provod and David Juracek.

Soucek booked for foul on Kvaratskhelia

81' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

The aforementioned Kvaratskhelia then goes steaming into a 50-50 challenge with Soucek and comes out worse off.

The yellow card is out for Soucek, strangely. The West Ham midfielder had every right to go for the ball.

79' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

This Czech Republic pressure has really taken its toll on the Georgia players, with a number of them struggling with cramp as we tick into the final 10 minutes of the 90.

One of the players particularly struggling is Kvaratskhelia. He is continuing to run after every ball on the left wing, but there doesn't look much left in theNapoli winger's tank.

Chytil glances a header wide

77' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

And there is another ball into the penalty area from Czech Republic.

Substitute Chytil was alert to the potential of the cross and did brilliantly to get across his marker at the near post. His glancing header was a good one, but it just drifted wide.

In any case, I'd wager that Mamardashvili had it covered.

Czech Republic keep coming at Georgia

75' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

This pressure has been excellent from Czech Republic in the second half. They have limited Georgia to very few counter attacks and have kept them right under the pump in their own defensive third.

The only criticism is that they have too often released that pressure by taking speculative pot shots from more 25 yards plus. It still feels that their best route to goal is by getting the ball into the penalty area from the wide areas.

More injury frustration for Schick

72' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

It's sad to see Patrik Schick go off with an injury. He's had a terrible time with groin issues these past two seasons and become more of a rotational option with Bayer Leverkusen as a result.

There is still a decent goalscorer in there — if only he had better injury luck and more consistent minutes.

71' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

A rare foray into the Czech Republic half for Georgia, but one that was short lived.

The ball was worked to Kvaratskhelia 30 yards from goal and he fancied his chances. But his effort was awful and flew a long way up into the stand behind Stanek's goal.

More praise for Mamardashvili

69' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

Mamardashvili has been exceptional today. He's made nine saves and the xG number boffins are in my ear telling me he's prevented at least two goals an "average" shot stopper would have let in.

68' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

A real blow for Czech Republic as scorer of the equalising goal, Schick, has to be replaced.

They will hope that isn't anything serious as their chances of progression will be hugely affected if their No 9 is unavailable for the rest of the tournament.

He has been replaced by Slavia Prague's Mojmir Chytil.

66' Georgia 1-1 Czech Republic

Another strong save from Mamardashvili after Matej Jurasek had cut in from the left wing and struck goalwards from the edge of the penalty area.

It was a save you would expect the Georgia goalkeeper to make — especially in the form he is in — but a good save, nonetheless.
