England were left frustrated by Czech Republic and their goalkeeper Olivie Lukasova at the Brighton & Hove Community Stadium.

The match marked Lucy Bronze’s 100th England cap but it was only the second time under Sarina Wiegman that the Lionesses have failed to score.

Lauren James hit the post just three minutes in and Lauren Hemp was similarly denied on the hour mark but with a touch from the keeper.

Ella Toone was blocked out by Lukasova and Chloe Kelly saw her glancing header drift just wide.

Andrea Staskova had a good chance for the visitors but Alex Greenwood got back to block the shot, with Greenwood almost scoring direct from a late corner.

Fran Kirby missed a chance for the breakthrough and then saw her long-range effort tipped over the bar.
