Czechs do not fight with Turkey as a retaliation for the Euro in 2008

Goalkeeper Petr Čech does not take the final match in the European Championship against Turkey as a reward for defeat and elimination in the championship eight years ago. With Czech officials in the lead at the 74th minute, he managed 2-0, but his opponent in the end unexpectedly turned the situation and sent the national team home.

“I won the dinner. I stated that this question will surely fall “, he said with a smile to Czechs at a press conference before the Tuesday match.” I certainly do not take this as a retaliation because it’s eight years. It’s a revenge for the match (in October in qualifying) in Prague, where we lost 0: 2 because it is the last match, but if we played with them eight years ago…In their team, there are about five players who even then worked in a Turkish representation. “ The Czech team has one point in the Euro in France after two matches, the Turks They are both without a point, so both teams have to win victory in order to maintain progressive hopes, and under certain circumstances the fairplay criterion, ie the number of cards, can be decided. “We have everything in our hands. We want to get three points so we do not have to wait for other results and do not have to look at other circumstances.

Then you do not have to worry about fair play, “
said Czechs.

Turkey has not managed to make it to the tournament, losing 0: 1 to Croatia and then 0: 3 to the Spaniards.But according to Czech, it does not mean anything. “I think it belongs to the group of Spain and Croatia, it is a very good team, and they lost the first two games…We were the first to lose and the other to lose. He beat 2-0 in Prague and he played very well and they still have a chance to advance, on the contrary, I think that the more motivation will have to correct the performance of the last match, which their coach criticized, “

He believes the team will be able to handle without the injured captain Tomas Rosicky. “It’s a big loss, Tomas is our key player, and other players have to represent him, we are a team whose main role is a team game, a team spirit, we do not have big stars, so other players have a chance to show they have it, “ added to Bohemia.
