Matej Vydra insists Czech Republic will exploit the weakness of Harry Maguire when England host their European qualifier opponents at Wembley.
Maguire has been the backbone of the Three Lions defence and his exemplary performance in the World Cup earned him severe plaudits. However, the Leicester City defender didn’t have a good week for his club as he got the marching order from the referee following a rough tackle on Burnley player Berg Gudmundsson.
Vydra who also happens to be a Clarets player feels the defender does have the knack to crumble and they need to utilize that. “Kane is top, Rashford as well, Sterling is in a great form. The attack is very strong. Defence, I don’t say it’s not strong as well, but it’s not as strong as the attack.
“For example, Maguire. We talked about him at Burnley before we played against Leicester. In some moments it seems he doesn’t know what’s happening behind him, that’s why he got a red card after five minutes in the match against Burnley.
“They (England) would surely like to hold the ball and play a possession game, so we have to be close to them. Don’t be afraid to kick them three or four times – then they may change the plan and play just one or two touches.”
