Czech Republic coach Michal Bilek hopes that captain Tomas Rosicky will be available for the conclusion of their Group A campaign after limping off during the 2-1 win over Greece in Wroclaw.

The Czechs lost their opening game 4-1 to Russia and knew a another defeat would extinguish their hopes of reaching the quarter-finals. But they always looked on course to pick up the three points after taking a 2-0 lead inside six minutes thanks to goals from Petr Jiracek and Vaclav Pilar, ensuring Fanis Gekas' goal was only a consolation.

Arsenal midfielder Rosicky was forced off at half-time after picking up an Achilles injury and Bilek admitted he is a doubt for their final Group A fixture against co-hosts Poland on Saturday. He said: "With Rosicky, it was his Achilles so it was unpleasant for him and we will see tomorrow what the extent of the problem us."
