Jaroslav Plasil and David Lafata retire from Czech Republic duty

Jaroslav Plasil was booked in his final international appearance on Tuesday.

Czech Republic striker David Lafata and midfielder Jaroslav Plasil both announced they are retiring from international football after their group-stage exit from Euro 2016 on Tuesday.

The Czechs finished fourth in Group D with only one point from a 2-2 draw with Croatia. They lost 1-0 to Spain 1-0 and then 2-0 to Turkey in their final match on Tuesday.

The 34-year-old Plasil was a mainstay of the team. He played at four European Championships, starting in 2004, the 2006 World Cup and made a total of 103 appearances, scoring seven goals.

The 35-year-old Lafata played 41 internationals, scoring nine times.

Other players, including goalkeeper Petr Cech and captain Tomas Rosicky, are expected to decide about their international futures later after the tournament.
