The Czech Republic have been knocked out of football’s European Championship in France. With one point from two games going into their final group match with Turkey, the Czechs needed a win to keep their hopes of progress to the knockout stage alive. However, they lost 2:0 after conceding one goal in each half and failing to reply. Manager Pavel Vrba said he saw no reason why he should step down after the country’s poor showing at Euro 2016. Jaroslav Plašil and David Lafata have announced their international retirements and there is speculation that Petr Čech and Tomáš Rosický have also played their final games for the national side.
