Czechia is one of the European football teams that consistently performs just below the traditional heavyweights such as England, Spain, Italy, and Germany. The country boasts a wealth of talent, with its players gaining increasing recognition and interest from elite clubs across major European leagues.

Historically, Czechia has produced sensational players like Pavel Nedvěd, Petr Čech, Milan Baroš, and Tomáš Rosický. In modern times, individuals like Patrik Schick and Tomáš Souček continue to raise the country’s profile in international football.

Czechia’s participation in the 2024 UEFA European Championships marks their continued presence in every edition of the tournament since the formation of the Czech Republic following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia. This year, they could be the dark horses of the continental showpiece, with the following five players being crucial to their success:

Matěj Kovář

Matěj Kovář is one of the most promising young footballers in Europe. The goalkeeper played a key role in helping Bayer Leverkusen reach the final of the 2023-24 UEFA Europa League. He had a successful season with the club, winning the DFB-Pokal and the Bundesliga in his first season after signing from Manchester United.

Tomáš Souček

Tomáš Souček, the captain of the Czechia squad, hopes to lead his side to success at the 2024 UEFA European Championships. He also plays for West Ham United alongside his compatriot Vladimír Coufal and has been with the Premier League outfit since 2020. With 70 appearances and 12 goals for the national team, Souček is one of the most experienced players in Czechia’s roster.
