“It is necessary to emphasize that coach Jaroslav Šilhavý has not met any other member of the national team in the last twelve days. To prevent any speculation, we must also add that he is vaccinated. Unfortunately, despite all the measures, infection cannot be completely avoided nowadays. Jarda will communicate intensively with the rest of the coaching staff at a distance, “says Libor Sionko, the national team manager.
The national team will be represented in the upcoming matches by his assistant Jiří Chytrý ℹ️ instead of coach Jaroslav Šilhavý

Patrik Schick is missing in the nomination of the national football team. Krmenčík may be additionally called up
“It is a complication for us, of course, but we were also prepared for this variant. We tried it last year in Scotland, we will be in frequent contact with Jarda and we will discuss everything. I believe that we will manage both matches successfully, “advises Chytrý.
The first training will take place on Monday in Prague, where the national team will start preparing for both matches. The national team will go to Olomouc on Wednesday.
