Tomas Rosicky, Milan Baros back in Czech team

Prague, Aug 2 : Playmaker Tomas Rosicky and striker Milan Baros have returned to the Czech Republic team for next week's friendly against Norway, the last test before the final stage of 2012 European Championship qualifying.

Rosicky missed a June tournament in Japan due to a muscle injury while Baros had an Achilles' tendon injury. Czech Republic coach Michal Bilek, who announced his 19-member squad for the Aug. 10 match in Oslo on Tuesday, said both players are fit to play.

Midfielder Marcel Gecov, who joined Fulham last month, was called for his first international match.

Bilek says “he'll be in the starting lineup.”

Team manager Vladimir Smicer said several guards will accompany the team following the recent twin terror attacks in Norway.  AP
