Czech Republic name provisional Euro 2012 squad

Michal Bilek has named his provisional 24-man squad for the summer tournament in Poland and Ukraine and he has included all of his high-profile stars

Czech Republic head coach Michal Bilek has named his provisional squad for the 2012 European Championship

The 24-man list is very much as expected, with star names such as Chelsea's Petr Cech, Arsenal's Tomas Rosicky, Galatasaray striker Milan Baros and Bordeaux's Jaroslav Plasil all making the squad.

CSKA Moscow striker Tomas Necid is also included despite not making an appearance for the national side since June 2011.

One player who misses out is Ladislav Krejci. The 19-year-old has been in sparkling form for Sparta Prague this season, but the fleet-footed winger has failed to make the grade.

All of the players named are expected to take their place in Poland and Ukraine, apart from goalkeeper Tomas Grigar, who is likely to miss out as Bilek will already have three shot-stoppers at his disposal.

Czech Republic have been placed in Group A alongside Poland, Russia and Greece.
