“It’s one of the important games,” the 30-year-old selection captain said on Sunday. Czech Republic will play against the Scottish team in Glasgow this Monday (3pm / magentaTV). Given the other opponents in the group, such as England and Croatia, the chances of a loser advancing in the opening game should be very low.
“It’s an important game,” said coach Jaroslav Silhavi. “We have more difficult games against tough opponents who are favourites. But in football anything can happen.” You will know more for sure after the first game, said the 59-year-old. “But I don’t think it’s over if we don’t win three points.” Even then you will not give up.
According to the coach, after the injury to Bremen goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka, the Czech Republic have no more damage to complain about. “I can only hope that this was the last change we had to make in the team,” said Silhavi. As for Pavlenka, FC Augsburg’s Tomas Kubek will join the team after the game against the Scots.
Before answering the first question, Darida extended best wishes to Christian Eriksson of Denmark on behalf of the entire team. The 29-year-old Inter Milan professional collapsed on the pitch in a 1-0 draw against Finland on Saturday.
