Czech Republic will have to do without captain Tomas Rosicky. Who has been ruled out for the rest of the competition with a thigh injury.
The 35-year-old assisted his country’s first goal of the tournament, in the 2-2 draw against Croatia. But could not continue playing, clutching the back of his leg.
The team doctor, Petr Zeman told reporters a MRI scan has revealed the extent of the injury suffered by the veteran playmaker.
“Tomas underwent a detailed magnetic resonance imaging scan in the local hospital, which unfortunately confirmed our suspicion that there was an injury to the thigh,” said Zeman.
“One hundred percent [he will] not intervene in any match in the coming days, certainly not with the Turks, and we believe that even in the coming weeks will not be able to play any match in Euro 2016.
“He’s getting a variety of drugs. But it’s always a matter of weeks. With this injury, it is very individual, but it will between three to six weeks.”
