The Czechs must beat Poland on Saturday night to keep their hopes of qualification for the 2010 World Cup alive. As well as a victory in Prague, the Czechs must also hope that table-topping Slovakia beat Slovenia. Even with a win on Saturday, the Czechs still have to clinch qualification for South Africa with victory in their last game against Northern Ireland on Wednesday. The Czechs are currently fourth in their group. They are unable to overtake Slovakia but have a chance of piping Slovenia and Northern Ireland for the second place.
