TL;DR news on Czech Republic at December 19, 2022

Czech Republic star Patrik Schick scored his third goal of Euro 2020 from a penalty after a VAR decision deemed that Dejan Lovren had fouled him when the pair collided in the box. The water level is dropping because of the Turow mine, which he says is getting closer each year to the Czech border. Polish and Czech ministers are due to meet in Prague on Thursday in a bid to resolve the dispute. Mr Starec says pumping drains 40 litres every second from groundwater on the Czech side of the border. But unlike the others, Turow lies right on the border with both Germany and the Czech Republic and the mining has a direct impact on both countries. And it must reach a deal with the neighbouring Czechs too.
