Czech skipper in fitness doubt
Czech Republic captain Tomas Rosicky has admitted he is unsure whether he'll play in Saturday's crucial Euro 2012 match with Poland.
The Arsenal man came into the tournament with a foot problem and, despite coming through his country's first game against Russia, he was forced off at half-time during Tuesday's victory over Greece.
Both teams go into the clash in Wroclaw knowing only a victory will be enough to guarantee them a place in the quarter-finals and it will certainly be a nervous occasion at the Stadion Miejski.
The Czechs looked noticeably disjointed following Rosicky's withdrawal against the Greeks and the skipper admits he still doesn't know if he'll be ready for Saturday's must-win game.
"Unfortunately I got a knock in the same place where I had issues towards the end of the club season at Arsenal, he said. "It hurts me even if I walk. Actually, I cannot stand on the foot properly."
"On the other hand, I'm not throwing in the towel. I was waiting for this tournament for an extremely long time and, if it is any way possible, I will take my chances. We'll see how it turns out."
