Czech Republic happy to be back

Czech Republic happy to be back

Czech Republic missed the last two big international competitions and now they will return to the main stage with a rejuvenated team. Some of the most experienced players decided to quit the national team so head coach Jan Basny had a lot of task to solve before the EURO with a newly-built young team. The Czech team won’t arrive to Sweden with high hopes but they don’t want to leave the competition without a mark as outsiders: they intend to collect at least a win. To complete that, they will need to defeat Denmark, Hungary or Montenegro. Basny sees some chances for that against the also rejuvenated Montenegro.

Key players: Iveta Luzumova, Jana Knedlikova, Michaela Hrbkova

Lucie Satrapova (goalkeeper, Kristiandstad)
