Besides Skrtel, our D is mediocre. I´m only little worried Skrtel who suffered a cracked jaw some time ago and isn´t fully recovered yet. Second CB Jan Durica (Lokomotiv Moscow) and RB Pekarik (Wolfsburg) are warming the bench in their clubs now. LB Zabavnik is regular in Terek Groznyj.yes huge risk is right, but who do we have better? :frustrat:
Central defense looks very weak with Ujfalusi in retirement, Rozehnal was responsible for both goals last time, Simunek is not playing for the club. Not that optimistic for this match, the only hope is that Hasek can somehow inspire the team to play at its best potential
Well, this is playable. But I´m going to wait for the match - my predictions are always wrong, so I won´t spoil the result which won´t happen to you.Czech coach Ivan Hašek announced following team for clash vs Slovakia:
