Michal Bilek has announced his 23-man roster for the summer tournament in Poland and Ukraine which includes a late call up for Vladimir Darida
Czech Republic coach Michal Bilek cut goalkeeper Tomas Grigar and rewarded Vladimir Darida with a spot in his final Euro 2012 squad at the expense of Daniel Pudil.
Darida was originally drafted in as emergency cover in case Tomas Rosicky did not recover from injury. But the Czech boss was impressed with the 21-year-old's debut against Israel on Saturday and has decided to include him for the tournament.
Bilek has been able to call upon all his high-profile players including Petr Cech, Tomas Sivok and Milan Baros. There are also eight domestic-based members who have been selected to travel to Poland and Ukraine.
Czech Republic will kick off their Euro 2012 campaign with the Group A match against Russia on June 8. They will then face Greece before their final group game against co-hosts Poland.
