Czech footballers this morning departed for France and the start of the Euro 2016 competition. They were due to land in the city of Tours, which they have chosen as their base, in the afternoon. Manager Pavel Vrba and his squad will be staying in a four star hotel converted from a 17th century castle. The Czechs’ first match is against Spain in Toulouse on Monday. Spain surprisingly lost 1:0 against Georgia in a warm up match on Tuesday night.
