Jablonec have lifted the Česká Pošta Cup, Czech domestic soccer’s main cup competition, after defeating Mladá Boleslav on penalties. The sides were tied at 2:2 after extra time on Friday night, with Jablonec – who had lost in their previous three cup finals – running out 5:4 winners in the subsequent penalty shootout. As in a number of European countries, winning the cup is considerably less prestigious in the Czech Republic than taking the league title.
