Rosicky faces race to be fit

Published Add your comment

Tomas Rosicky is in a race against time to be fit for Czech Republic's final European Championship Group A match against Poland on Saturday night.

Captain Rosicky sat out Friday's training session with the Achilles injury that forced him off during Tuesday's 2-1 win over Greece. The Arsenal midfielder played down fears his absence would have a dramatic impact on his team-mates as they looked for the win or draw what would seal a quarter-final spot.

"What I'm feeling in the team is great hope, a great chance to go to the quarter-finals," Rosicky said. "Of course, the guys are worried if I play or not. But we hope to go through. We've got a great opportunity here and we are aware of it, and we want to grab this chance and go through."
