England must wait to confirm their place in Euro 2020 after the Republic deservedly finished their 43-game unbeaten streak in qualifiers.
Gareth Southgates side could have secured their place at next summers championship with victory at Prague but they can have no complaints after a display against a side who had been a different proposition from 5-0 sailed aside in March at Wembley.
If they beat Bulgaria and Kosovo dont conquer Montenegro, england can be eligible on Monday.
England were given the ideal start when captain Harry Kane place them ahead from the penalty spot in the fifth minute but they were below their best and slumped into a defeat.
The Czechs were swiftly flat when Jakub Brabec scored after a corner. England couldnt muster additional inspiration and substitute Zdenek Ondrasek the winner.
England were poor during and were thankful to goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, who made fine rescue from Vladimir Masopust Coufal and Alex Kral, although counterpart Tomas Vaclik failed to refuse Sterling and Kane.
They can put things right from Bulgaria in Sofia but that was a reality check to get a side hoping to do good things because they went down on 10 October 2009 dropping a qualifier for the first time.
This will rank as the director himself has to carry his share of this duty and among their worst performances of the predominate of Southgate.
No-one can whine about his choice to give Chelseas in-form Mason Mount his introduction however, the youngster in the first half.
Components will relish facing Southgate and this England defence is currently running from time to apply the correct
Mount was barely able to influence the game and with Declan Rice pedestrian and subjected and Jordan Henderson, England found themselves overrun from the sprightly Czechs.
Englands potent attacking trio of Sterling Kane and Jadon Sancho were starved of support, which makes them under-performing in each region of the pitch.
The Czech Republic, supported with a bunch in Prague, gathered optimism and momentum and it was no surprise when Ondrasek broke Pickfords immunity .
This was not really great enough along with when they won at Southampton the concerns that surfaced concerning their quality will grow after this.
Any hope the doubt that characterised Englands success against Kosovo had been successfully addressed was banished in Prague inside the first 10 minutes.
Pickford saved brilliantly from Coufal since the Czech Republic responded to Englands early salvo however there was also the trademark confusion in the corner that finished with Brabec stabbing home from close variety.
England lived and it wasnt a shock when they surrendered.
Evertons Michael Keane battles while Danny Rose and Kieran Trippier barely covered themselves in glory.
Harry Maguire looks the one staple in defence however he does not exude confidence either.
To put it differently, quality components will enjoy facing this England defence and Southgate is running out of time to apply the correct.
England travel to Bulgaria on Monday (kick-off 19:45 BST) trying to secure a spot at Euro 2020.
There was someone out there who did that could do it and do it
