In the latest of our Euro 2016 updates, it looks like it’s bad news for Tomas Rosicky despite playing a key part in helping the Czech Republic come back from 2-0 down against Croatia.
The 35 year old provided a delicious outside of the boot assist to Bob Skoda whose powerful header made it 2-1 on the night. A late penalty secured a point for the Czechs, somewhat offsetting their late defeat to Spain in their opening game.
Sadly though, Rosicky pulled his hamstring as the game wound down. With nobody near him he fell to the ground clutching the back of his thigh, and it probably means his tournament – and possibly his international career – is over.
Still, it was quite an assist, as you can see.
Petr Cech played and conceded twice but the late goal means they have a chance to qualify if they beat Turkey in their final game.
There was no real Arsenal interest in the other games, although there were some former Gunners on show. Cesc Fabregas played in Spain’s 3-0 win over Turkey with Hector Bellerin an unused sub.
Kim Kallstrom and Seb Larsson played in Sweden’s 1-0 defeat to Italy in which Zlatan Ibrahimovic did nothing. It’s almost as if he’s been playing in a powerhouse side against bang average teams for the last few years or something, and finds it more difficult when you face decent defenders.
Maybe that’s just us though.
