Half-Time Report: Czech Republic Under-21s holding Germany Under-21s to goalless draw

Czech Republic Under-21s are holding a dominant Germany Under-21s side to a half-time goalless draw in their Euro 2015 Group A decider in Prague.

Czech Republic Under-21s are holding Germany Under-21s to a goalless draw in their Euro 2015 Group A decider in Prague.

The game started brightly as both sides appeared intent to push forward and press their opponents, Jakub Brabec forcing a save from goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen just three minutes in.

Germany countered with speed moments later and nearly drew first blood when Kevin Volland drifted a left-footed shot just wide of the far post.

Horst Hrubesch's charges began asserting themselves on the game and tested opposition goalkeeper Tomas Koubek in the 10th minute, through Amin Younes's stinging drive.

The tournament hosts struggled as the Germans soon threatened at every opportunity, but a mistake from Ter Stegen nearly cost his side dearly just before the half-hour mark.

The Barcelona stopper miskicked a clearance, allowing Jan Kliment to set Martin Frydek up in a good position, but the Slovan Liberec defender curled his shot just wide of the far post.

Germany ended the half dominant, as Volland, Joshua Kimmich and Nico Schulz added to their side's chance tally but couldn't get a goal to show for it.
