Sadilek suffers freak accident

According to Petr Sedivy, the press representative of the national team, the FC Twente midfielder fell off his bike and injured his leg.

Sadilek played the full 90 minutes for Czechia as captain in a 7-1 victory over Malta in a warm-up friendly.

“The players who played more than half a half in Friday’s friendly against Malta had an individual program on Saturday.”

“Sadílek unfortunately fell while riding his bike and suffered a laceration in the leg.”

Huge setback for Czechia

Sadilek, 25, played for Lokomotiva in the last Euros in 2021.

He has played twenty-four matches for the Czech side and scored one goal.

“This is a big setback for us, because Michal is one of our experienced players,” Czech Republic coach Ivan Hasek said. “It was not without reason that he wore the captain’s armband during the match against Malta.”

Czech Republic will play one more friendly against North Macedonia on Monday before kicking off their Euro 2024 campaign against Cristiano Ronaldo and Portugal in Group F on June 18
