Chelsea and Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech has confirmed that he is likely to shake off the injury problem that he suffered against Greece in order to be fit for the match against Poland.
The 30-year-old goalkeeper picked up a shoulder injury in the second group game against Greece. It was a match that the Czech Republic won 2-1. This victory has put them with the opportunity to get into the quarter-final stage of the competition, despite getting off to the worst possible start in the competition with a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Russia. Petr Cech was responsible for a number of errors made by Czech Republic in the game.
However, he has recovered to help his team win the most decisive match against Greece 2-1. Had the Czech Republic lost the match against Greece, then they would have gone into the final group game against Poland with no hope of qualifying to the quarter-finals. As it stands, they can achieve the impossible by getting into the quarter-finals with a win over Poland. It was initially thought that Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, who won the Champions League title with his club, would not make it into the Poland match due to the shoulder injury.
“I should be 100 per cent fit. I will be able to train normally now without any limitations. I don’t look back — the main thing is we won the match," said the Chelsea goalkeeper ahead of the Poland match. Cech went on to help Czech Republic win the match by keeping a clean sheet in the 1-0 win. "We started badly and let the occasion get to us a little bit. The home side capitalised on our mistakes. But with time we got better. We created chances and then scored a deserved goal," said Cech after the match.
