Tomas Rosicky and his Czech Republic side were left stunned as minnows Armenia scored late to claim a 2-1 victory in Letna in World Cup qualifying last Friday.

Karlen Mkrtchyan’s stunner on the half-hour mark opened the scoring for Armenia but the scores were level in the 70th minute when Arsenal midfielder and Czech captain Rosicky slotted the ball home from the edge of the area.

However, it would not be enough as Gevorg Ghazaryan scored in injury time to take Armenia to fifth in Group B on nine points, level with Czech Republic, following Tuesday’s loss to Denmark and the Czechs’ defeat in Italy.
