31 May 2019

Vydra will be hoping to add to the 26 caps he has won for his country and help the Czechs get their first points of the qualifying campaign on the board.

The 27-year-old came off the bench at Wembley in their opening group game – a 5-0 defeat to England.

Vydra’s side faces Bulgaria in Prague on Friday, 7 June, before meeting Montenegro in Olomouc on Monday, 10 June.

The Czech Republic were runners-up at Euro 96 in England and reached the semi-finals in 2004, but didn’t win a game in the group stage of the 2016 tournament in France.
