Euro 2012 Preview: Czech Republic vs Poland
Wroclaw: Petr Cech and Tomas Rosicky are two serious injury doubts for Czech Republic as it hopes to confirm its place in the next round with victory over the host in Wroclaw. The Chelsea goalkeeper stated that he expects to be on the pitch when questioned on Thursday, but the Arsenal man is struggling with an Achilles problem and only played 45 minutes of the 2-1 victory over Greece.
If Rosicky is ruled out, Viktoria Plzen`s Daniel Kolar could deputize in the playmaking role. Elsewhere, however, Michal Bilek should name the same side that overcame the Greeks, with Tomas Hubschman starting in front of the defense after an impressive performance in Tuesday`s match.
Having completed a one-match suspension following a red card against Greece, Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny is expected to reclaim his place between the post for a game Poland has to win to continue its Euro 2012 campaign.
Meanwhile, a slight doubt also hangs over the head of Ludovic Obraniak. The midfielder reacted angrily to being substituted during the 1-1 draw with Russia, but has subsequently apologized and is expected to keep his place for Saturday`s clash.
