Budapest – Czech footballers will start in the early evening eighth finals of the European Championship against the Netherlands in Budapest without the injured captain Vladimír Darida, who is not even on the bench. Antonín Barák will replace him in the middle of the deposit. Another midfielder, Tomáš Souček, will take over the captain’s armband after Darid.

The Czech coach Jaroslav Šilhavý also made two more changes compared to Tuesday’s final match in the group with England – the entire left side of the team will start in the new line-up. On the edge of the defense, Pavel Kadeřábek will replace Jan Bořil, who will serve his penalty for two yellow cards. On the left side of the deposit, Petr Ševčík will start unexpectedly for the first time at the championship instead of Jakub Jankt at the championship.

His teammate from Slavia Lukáš Masopust will play on the other wing. In the middle of the field will be the third representative of the team from Eden, Tomáš Holeš, who again took precedence over Alex Král.

Darida is one of the key players in the national team and has recently played the role of captain. In all three matches of the group on the Euro, he started in the basic line-up. With 75 national team starts, he is clearly the most experienced player in the Czech nomination for the championship.

Herthy Berlin, a 30-year-old midfielder, suffered an unspecified injury during Friday’s practice in Prague, where the team is based during the Euro. He did not train on Saturday and tried to do his best with doctors and physiotherapists to get on board, which did not happen in the end.

In addition to the injured Darida and the punished Bořil, stopper David Zima did not even fit on the bench from the Czech nomination for the Euro.

The Dutch, who, unlike Šilhavý, won all three matches in the group, will start in the expected eleven with a 3-5-2 formation. Donyell Malen took precedence in the attack alongside Memphis Depay.

The match has a kick-off in Budapest at 18:00.

Basic sets:

The Netherlands: Stekelenburg – De Vrij, De Light, Blind – Dumfries, De Roon, Wijnaldum, F. de Jong, Van Aanholt – Depay, Malen.

CR: Vaclík – Coufal, Čelůstka, Kalas, Kadeřábek – Holeš, Souček – Masopust, Barák, Ševčík – Schick.
