PLAYERS: Petr Cech
Key Player: Tomas Rosicky  Taken from Zimbio Rosicky, in recent seasons, has struggled with injury. However, this last 1/3 of the season he has been a real key man for Arsenal, with a vital goal in Arsenal's win over Spurs. Also, anyone who watched  Euro 2004, will remember his eye-catching performances.  The 'Little Mozart' has often claimed he would love to see a future where Czech Republic can compete for World Cups and European Championships. One to Watch: Petr Jiracek  Taken from Super Sport Jiracek is an up and coming young talent, who has been quoted by Petr Cech saying, "He is a hard-working and versatile player who can cover a lot of ground during matches". He has been an in-form player this season for Wolfsburg, and has become a first team regular.  His incredible passing skills are matched with cool, composure. He often plays behind Rosicky, and will try to thread balls to him and Baros. Manager: Michal Bilek  Taken from Green Scene Former player, who won the 1990 World Cup Player of the Tournament! He is 46 years old, and got his job after coming through the backroom.  On the back end of last year, there were huge pleas for Bilek to step down, after a string of poor results, however, he decided to ditch his 4-2-2-2 formation and move to the modern 4-2-3-1, to fit key players Rosicky and Plasil in the team. How Czech Republic qualified for Euro 2012 Taken from UEFA Czech Republic started off there Euro 2012 group stage, with a disappointing result, losing 1-0 at home to Lithuania. Then some more atrocious results saw the manager's future in jeopardy. He quickly changed the tactics to fit the team better.  They finished 2nd behind Spain, to qualify they had to win in the Play Offs. They drew Montenegro, who had been an impressive team in England's group. Their first leg was at home, which they won 2-0, putting them in a good position to qualify. Away in the second leg, they once again prevailed, 1-0.
