The meteoric run of FC Dallas’ Zdeněk Ondrášek has reached unbelievable levels as the striker carried his eight-game hot streak with FCD over into this first-ever call up for the Czech Republic.
It’s remarkable enough for “the Cobra,” as he is nicknamed, to earn his first call up at the age of 30. Then on Friday he came off the bench in the second half in a European Qualifier against England and proceeded to score the game-winner in the 85th minute of the 2-1 win.
Then on Monday, the Czech Republic played a friendly against Northern Ireland. Ondrášek again came off the bench at halftime with this club trailing 3-0 and proceeded to get two assists. Cobra even scored an equalizer in the 90th minute only to have it waived off for offside. Not surprisingly, Ondrášek got himself a yellow card for dissent at that point.
Here’s the first of Cobra’s two assists against Northern Ireland.
The last 10 games of his career with FC Dallas and the Czech Republic have been stratospheric for Ondrášek.
At Montreal Impact – 1 goal
Vs Houston Dynamo – 2 goals, 1 assist
Vs FC Cincinnati – 1 goal, 1 assist
At Chicago Fire – 0 goals
At Seattle Sounder – DNP
Vs NYCFC – 1 goal
At Colorado Rapids – 0 goals
Vs Sporting KC – 2 goals
Vs England – 1 goal (game-winner)
Vs Northern Ireland – 2 assists
This is just about the hottest hot streak we’ve ever seen with an FC Dallas player.
