Alex Kral plays a neat one-two and drives into the right side of the England box before seeing his rasping drive beaten away by Pickford at the near post.
At the other end, Sterling threatens again but can't charge his way beyond Boril, who throws his body in front of the England man. No penalty there either.
Rose tussles with Soucek in the area. The Czech man goes down but the referee isn't interested.

Sterling clips a delightful cross into the box for Kane. The skipper is onside, but can't get anything on his attempt to flick it towards goal. That was a decent chance too.
England break at speed. Kane turns form deep and rakes a wonderful ball over the top for the rampaging Sancho. The Dortmund man looks to be in, but can't quite get the ball under control and the Czechs manage to get men back to thwart him.
Movement on the Czech bench. How about it Gareth?
Masopust cuts inside and unleashes a curving, dipping 20-yard strike that Pickford is forced to tip over the bar.
SAVE! Tomás Vaclik does brilliantly to rush out and deny Sterling after Kane had sent the Man City man clear.
England have looked better operating in a 4-3-3, but you feel it is time for Southgate to make a change or two.
DID YOU KNOW? This was the first time in the group (from four previous matches) that England were not leading at the interval.
Tomas Soucek skews a horrible left-foot strike well wide of the near post after the Czechs pounced upon sloppy play from the visitors and poured forward on the counter.
England have reverted to a 4-3-3 with Rice in the middle and Henderson on the right. The 4-2-3-1 with Mount in the hole just didn't work in that first period.
Vladimir Darida with the first attempt of the second half, but he sizzles a long-range drive way off target.
No changes at the break. The hosts should be quite content, but Southgate will no doubt have some adjustments in mind if things don't improve.

KICK OFF! England restart the contest hoping for a better second period.
- End of 1st Half
HT: Czech Republic 1-1 England. Kane's penalty cancelled out by Brabec as both sides strike inside the first 10 minutes. The hosts have probably edged it since then, but the score remains level at the break.
One minute added.
STAT: England have won eight of their last nine games. Their only loss came in the Nations League semi final against Holland in June.
Masopust drags his shot across the face of goal after the Czechs had cut England open once more with a simple cross and flick-on from the left.
Pickford's attempt at a feint is easily read and the England keeper's heart must have skipped a beat as he just about managed to hack the ball away. Needless dithering from the Everton stopper.
STAT: England are unbeaten in 43 qualifiers (W34 D9)
A super double block! Kane finds space for a shot with a late run into the area. His effort ricochets to Mount, who sees his attempt on the spin well blocked.
England fail to deal with another set piece. This time Schick meets a left-wing free kick but can't generate enough power on it to trouble Pickford.
England have been second best, particularly in that midfield area.
More probing play from Boril. He sees the run of Jankto, who ghosts into the left of the area and wastes little time in steering a fizzing cross into the six-yard box. Fortunately for England, no-one is there to convert for the home team.
Jan Boril is given time and space to push forward from the left, cut inside and test Pickford with a strike from distance.

VIDEO: Kane's penalty.
The Czechs have been the better side since levelling.
PHOTO: Brabec celebrates his equaliser.
England struggle to deal with another corner, but this time Schick can't convert the nod on.
The form book for both sides suggested goals would be the order of the day and it's certainly been very open so far.
PHOTO: Kane slots home the opener from the spot.
Indeed. The resulting free kick is just about dealt with at the second time of asking.
- Yellow cardDanny RoseEngland
Rose booked for a foul some 30 yards outside the area. England looking shaky at the back.
- GoalJakub BrabecCzech Republic
GOAL! The Czechs are level. England go to sleep defending a left-wing corner and Jakub Brabec is left free at the post to slam home.
The hosts respond and Coufal sees a 20-yarder pushed to safety by Pickford.
- Yellow cardJakub JanktoCzech Republic
That's pretty much a perfect start for the visitors. Meanwhile, Jakub Jankto is the first player in the book tonight.
STAT: Kane has now netted 20 England goals as skipper. Vivian Woodword is the top scoring Three Lions captain with 23. Kane is now level with Alan Shearer and Bryan Robson in second spot.
- Goal by penaltyHarry KaneEngland
GOAL! Kane fires the spot kick down the middle with the keeper diving out of the way to his right.
PENALTY TO ENGLAND! Sterling surges free down the left. He races into the area and cuts back, which bamboozles Lukas Masopust, who hooks the England man's leg.
Schick reacts first to a bouncing, low cross in from the left, but his touch is heavy and the ball rolls through to Pickford. England a little sluggish there.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! The hosts get this Euro 2020 qualifier up and running.
Just because... Enjoy!
DID YOU KNOW? There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Czech Republic's last five European Championship games.
HOT-SHOT HARRY: Harry Kane has netted 19 England goals as skipper. Vivian Woodword is the top scoring Three Lions captain with 23. Kane can level with Alan Shearer and Bryan Robson on 20 if he scores tonight.
OPINION: England once feared trips to Prague and Sofia - now Southgate relishes them.
More from Sterling: "We're developing and we're kind of getting that winning mentality. The Nations League was a bit disappointing, but we've got another chance now and I feel that a lot of the players don't just want to be involved in tournaments and finish in the quarter-finals and say that was a good run."
Raheem Sterling on England's attack: "Still learning, but at the same time are producing as well, so, yeah, it's an exciting front three. But, you know, we've got to do it in big games, big tournaments. That's when we'll be judged if we're a great front three or not."
Gareth Southgate: "The Czechs have a wonderful football history really... More successful than ours, in European Championships in particular, but there are a lot of countries in that situation. We've got to take on each challenge and we're a team who are slowly improving, learning all the time."
So, it's three changes for England following their high-scoring 5-3 victory over Kosovo in September. The stand-out line sees Mason Mount make his first start for the senior side while Kieran Trippier and Danny Rose come into the full back berths.
