Petr Cech thinks the Czech Republic can reach the Euro 2012 semi finals
Chelsea star Petr Cech believes that the Czech Republic have the chance of qualifying for the Euro 2012 semi finals by beating Portugal tomorrow.
The Portuguese are favourites for the game but the 30-year-old believes that his side have the capabilities of progressing.
“We haven’t lost yet, of course you can beat anyone on a good day,” Cech said.
“We definitely have a chance to advance. It’s sport and anything can happen.”
Cech is wary of their opponents, who progressed from the Group of Death, knocking out Holland and Denmark in the progress.
“They are among the world’s top ten teams. It’s a team full of personalities and outstanding players, and they play very well. Against the Netherlands on Sunday, they were excellent up front,” the Chelsea stopper added.
“They also have enough experienced players. The team have matured and they are really strong.”
