Football: Baroš out of Czech team for Scotland qualifier


Galatasaray's injured striker Milan Baroš will not be fit in time to face Scotland in the Czech Republic's Euro 2012 qualifier in Prague on October 8, Czech coach Michal Bílek said Wednesday. Baroš limped off the pitch with a torn thigh muscle after scoring a hat trick against Buyuksehir in the Turkish league game on Sunday. Doctors say he might be out for two or three weeks.

Bílek, whose team lost 0:1 at home to Lithuania in the Group I opener, selected two newcomers: Sparta Prague's 18-year-old striker Vaclav Kadlec, and Milan Petržela, a midfielder with Czech top-flight leaders Viktoria Pilsen.
