24.03.2007: Kuranyi keeps Germany top

Striker Kevin Kuranyi ensured Germany stay top of their Euro 2008 qualifying group with two headed goals either side of half-time as his side poached a 2-1 win over the Czech Republic on Saturday.

Schalke 04 striker Kuranyi bagged his 16th and 17th international goals to give Germany a three-point lead at the top of Group D over second-placed joint rivals the Czech Republic and Ireland following the deserved win in Prague.

The 25-year-old struck on 42 minutes when a well-placed header beat Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech and he repeated the feat on 62 minutes when he headed midfielder Bernd Schneider’s cross home. Czech striker Milan Baros managed a consolation goal on 76 minutes after he deflected a shot past Germany’s Jens Lehmann which wrong-footed the Arsenal goalkeeper, but it was too little, too late.

“We deserved the win,” said Kuranyi. “We kept them under a lot of pressure and the team played well as a unit.”
