And at the age of 35, Rosicky became the oldest player to feature for his nation at a European Championship.

But that's not all. Rosicky still holds the record for being Czech Republic's youngest-ever player to appear at the tournament.

The midfielder was only 19 when he appeared at Euro 2000 and started twice in defeats by Netherlands and France as his nation crashed out at the group stage.
