Petr Cech wants his Czech Republic team-mates to bounce back from the defeat to Russia last Friday

Chelsea star Petr Cech has called on his Czech Republic team-mates to learn the lessons from their 4-1 defeat to Russia going into their next to Euro 2012 games.

The Blues stopper will be in action against Greece tomorrow as the Euro 96 runners up look to bounce back from the defeat.

“The only lessons we learned were not to make unnecessary mistakes and to play much more aggressively,” acknowledged Cech.

“They had a lot of space and they have some very good players, so they were able to use that.

“We attacked them too late in the game, and they had already created their chances and scored them.

“We do not want to repeat those same mistakes and we will, of course, play more solidly in defence.”
