In football, new Czech manager of the national team, Karel Jarolím, has said that he sees room for improvement mainly in the finishing of his team. The Czech team completed a goalless draw in its first competitive game, a world cup qualifier, under Jarolím against Northern Ireland on Sunday. The manager pointed out in a press conference Wednesday that of the 15 shots during the game just one was on goal. Jarolím added that he counted on calling up Under-21 striker Patrik Schick to the main team and also hoped that former captain Tomáš Rosický would be willing once again to play for the national side. He said he would stay in touch with midfielder Rosický, who recently signed for Sparta Prague, with a view to his return to the national team.
