Czech goalkeeper Petr Čech has warned that Spain’s 1:0 loss in their last warm up game against Georgia will serve as a wake up call for the Czech team’s first opponents in the Euro 2016 competition. Čech said he would have preferred if the Spanish would have calmly won 5:0. The defeat means they will focus on any problems and be determined not to repeat them again, he said. The Arsenal goalkeeper pointed out though that Spain often had a stuttering start to big competitions with one draw and two defeats in the opening games in the last three major tournaments. The Czech Republic faces Spain on Monday. The Czech squad arrived at their French base outside the city of Tours on Wednesday afternoon and have already held their first training session.
