The Czech Republic faces a huge challenge in a European Championship quarterfinal against Portugal: to stop Cristiano Ronaldo, who has rediscovered his scoring touch and reproduced the form he showed in a 60-goal club season.
In Petr Cech, the Czechs have one of the best goalkeepers on earth. Since his international debut more than 10 years ago as a 19-year-old rookie, Cech has become as dominant for the national team as he has been for Chelsea since joining the English club in 2004.
But even Cech in goal might not be enough to halt the lethal Portuguese attack led by Ronaldo who scored two goals to send home the Netherlands.
Cech says the entire team must contribute to the huge task of stopping Ronaldo in Warsaw on Thursday.
