Three players’ names have been struck from a provisional squad named just one day earlier for the upcoming Euro 2016 championships. Defender Ondřej Zahustel, midfielder Jan Kovařík and striker Matěj Vrba, it was revealed, will not be taking part. The provisional list is now 25 names long. The final tally – 23 – must be finalized with UEFA by May 31. The team’s coach Pavel Vrba told an internet website that the decision not to take the striker had not been easy. Currently named in the squad are three goalkeepers, eight defenders, 10 midfielders and four strikers.
