In a blow to the Czech Republic’s Euro 2024 campaign, midfielder Michal Sadilek has been ruled out of the tournament after suffering an injury while riding his bike.

Sadilek, a 25-year-old player for FC Twente, had joined the national team ahead of the competition’s kickoff on Friday. However, during an individual training session, he fell off his bike and suffered a laceration on his leg, ending his hopes of representing his country this summer.

“It’s a big weakness for us, because Michal is one of the experienced players. After all, he also put on the captain’s armband during the match against Malta. On behalf of the whole team, I wish him a speedy recovery. If we call someone else, we will decide in the near future.”

A statement from the Czech national team confirmed the news, explaining that the players who had played more than half a half in Friday’s friendly against Malta were on an individual program on Saturday. Unfortunately, Sadilek’s bike accident resulted in the injury that will keep him from participating in Euro 2024.

Sadilek, who has 24 caps for the Czech Republic, had captained the team during their 7-1 friendly win over Malta on Friday. The Czech Republic is set to begin their Euro 2024 campaign on June 18, facing off against Portugal in Group F, followed by matches against Turkey and Georgia.

As the team prepares for the tournament, they will have to adapt to the loss of Sadilek, a key player in their lineup. Football fans will be eagerly following the Czech Republic’s progress in Euro 2024 as they navigate the competition without their injured midfielder.
