Czechs handed Cech play-off boost

Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech has been declared fit to play in his side's Euro 2012 play-off double header against Montenegro.

Cech, 29, had been a major doubt for the Czechs after breaking his nose while playing for Chelsea against Blackburn last Saturday.

But national team doctor Petr Krejci revealed the 6 ft 6 in shot-stopper will be available to line-up against Montenegro on Friday after coming through training unscathed.

"Petr has managed the whole practice and he's able to play on Friday," Krejci said. "He feels pain after certain hits, but it's still an injury he can play with."

Krejki stressed that the decision on whether Cech plays or not will ultimately be up to the goalkeeper himself, who is sporting a mask to add to the protective headgear he has worn since he fractured his skull five years ago.

"It's a bit unusual but I used to play ice-hockey when I was a kid so I had wires before my eyes and I never minded that," Cech said. "[In training] They threw a ball from a metre at it and it hurt only as if they had touched the nose.

"If I considered all risks, I wouldn't have to come here. There are things in the game that you can't influence. If I get hit, I'll get hit".
