Czech Republic 6 FYR Macedonia 1
The Czech Republic significantly boosted their chances of winning World Cup European Zone qualifying Group One as they moved into the top spot following a convincing victory over FYR Macedonia at home.

The Czechs, semi-finalists last year in Euro 2004, bounced back from an early fright after Goran Pandev fired the unheralded FYR Macedonia ahead in the 14th minute.

But four goals in the space of 11 minutes from Jan Koller (42, 45, 49, 53) - who broke the Czech Republic's scoring record in their previous game against Andorra on Saturday - helped them on their way to securing an important three points in their quest to qualify for the world's most prestigious tournament.

Midfielder Tomas Rosicky then converted the fifth from the spot in the 74th minute before Milan Baros added the sixth (88) as the Czechs boosted their bid to reach the World Cup finals in Germany next year.

FYR Macedonia's opening goal came against the run of play when Pandev connected with Goran Popov's cross to slot home from close range and put the Czechs on the back foot.

The equaliser for the Czech Republic came after Rosicky's free-kick found Koller who headed the ball into the back of the net before he added his second to put the Czechs ahead.

After the interval Baros found Koller neatly placed to add the third before the striker nodded home his fourth following a corner from the impressive Rosicky.

Rosicky then opened his account as he converted from the spot after Jan Polak had been fouled in the area.

Baros, who finished as top scorer at Euro 2004 last summer in Portugal, then concluded the rout for his side as he blasted home following a through ball from Zdenek Grygera.

The Czech Republic could yet be knocked off the top of the standings if Holland beat Finland later on Wednesday as the two teams continue their struggle for supremacy in the pool.

Next up for the Czechs is a trip to Romania in September.
