Rosicky injury scare for Czech Republic

The Arsenal midfielder has suffered a muscle tear in his leg and must undergo medical assessments before joining his team-mates for a pre-tournament training camp
Czech Republic midfielder Tomas Rosicky is an injury concern ahead of Euro 2012 after suffering a muscle tear in his leg.

The Czech captain has enjoyed something of a renaissance this season with a series of eye-catching performances for Arsenal, but must now meet with a doctor to assess his injury.

“The muscle is not torn but it is necessary for me to consult a doctor," Rosicky told Sky Sports.

However, the Gunners playmaker remains hopeful that he will then be able to meet up with his team-mates at their pre-Euro 2012 training camp in Austria.

"After that, all being well, I will rejoin the squad," he added.

As a precaution, coach Michal Bilek has called up Victoria Plzen midfielder Vladimir Darida to the training camp, but he remains optimistic that his skipper will recover in time for the start of the tournament.

"For the moment there is no great panic as regards the fitness of Rosicky,” Bilek stated.

"But if towards the end of the week Tomas [Rosicky] is still not 100 per cent ready then [Vladimir] Darida will be selected for the Euro [championships], at the expense of an already selected player."
