The Czech Republic cruised past an overmatched Malta side 7-1 in its Euro 2024 warm-up match on Friday with Slavia Prague forward Mojmir Chytil scoring in each half for a team aiming to book a second straight quarter-final appearance.

Czech coach Ivan Hasek rested a number of key figures at the match in Grodig, Austria — including West Ham United midfielder Tomas Soucek and Bayer Leverkusen forward Patrik Schick — and instead blooded a number of less experienced players.

Fiorentina’s Antonin Barak opened the scoring for the Czechs in the sixth minute from the penalty spot before Chytil grabbed his first goal just before the break. David Jurasek, Ondrej Lingr, Matej Jurasek and Vaclav Cerny added to the Czech tally while Paul Mbong pulled a goal back for Malta.
