Euros: Czech Republic news, fixtures, manager, key players, Euros record

Czechoslovakia were crowned European champions in 1976, while the best result since playing as the Czech Republic was a runners-up finish in Euro 1996.

The Czech Republic made the last four of Euro 2004, the quarter-finals in 2012 and 2020, and the nation has a rich history of success in the tournament.

Czech Republic manager

Ivan Hasek

Beginning his managerial career in 1999, Ivan Hasek has managed a host of clubs including Sparta Prague, Strasbourg and Saint-Etienne.

The 60-year-old Czech has spent time managing at club level in Saudi Arabia and has also had periods in charge of the Lebanon and Gabon national teams.

Hasek is in his second spell in charge of the Czech Republic, having led the national team in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.

Czech Republic captain

Tomas Soucek

West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek is the Czech Republic captain. The 29-year-old has been capped 68 times for his country, scoring 12 goals, and he carries a major threat at set-pieces.

Soucek has proved a key man in the Hammers midfield in both the Premier League and Europe and was part of West Ham's Europa Conference League winning side.

The Irons midfielder made his international debut in 2016, having represented his country at Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level.

Czech Republic key players

Patrik Schick

Bayer Leverkusen forward Schick has hit the net 18 times in 37 appearances for his country and he was part of the Czech squad that reached the last-eight stage of Euro 2020. 

The striker finished that tournament as the joint top-scorer with five goals, while he has netted five times in 17 Bundesliga appearances this season.

Adam Hlozek

Adam Hlozek hasn't been a regular starter for Bayer Leverkusen this season, but the 21-year-old has scored seven goals for the German side and the youngster is one of the Czech Republic's future stars.

The forward has already racked-up 31 appearances for his national side and the former Sparta Prague man could enjoy a big tournament. 

Tomas Soucek

Soucek brings experience and a physical presence to his national side. The 29-year-old will offer plenty of protection to the Czech defence and he is likely to play a key role in any success.

Czech Republic one to watch

Matej Jurasek

Slavia Prague winger Jurasek is new to the international scene, having made his senior debut for his country in March this year, but he could prove to be a star in Germany.

The 21-year-old has impressed for his club this season, scoring five goals from 21 league appearances, and his youthful exuberance and raw talent could bring the Czech Republic that extra spark.

Czech Republic’s Euro 2024 prospects

Czech Republic qualified for Euro 2024 by losing only one game in a group that contained Albania, Poland, Moldova and the Faroe Islands.

Of course, the tournament proper will demand more, but a section containing Turkey, Georgia and Portugal certainly holds hope of qualification.

Schick should provide a reliable stream of goals, if the service is provided, and Hasek’s men could well be a surprise package.
