Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has
become the most capped Czech Republic
player of all time.
The 34-year-old broke the record previously
held by former Manchester United
winger Karel Poborsky by appearing in his
nation’s friendly win over Malta on Friday.
It was Cech’s 119th appearance for his
country during an international which has
spanned 14 years. The former Chelsea
stopper will no doubt extend the record this
summer when he competes at Euro 2016 for
Czech Republic, who have been placed in a
tough looking group alongside Croatia,
Spain and Turkey.
In what was a season of disappointment for
Arsenal, Cech’s seamless
integration represented one of the few plus
points. With 16 clean sheets overall Cech
won the coveted Golden Gloves award and
became the goalkeeper with the most clean
sheets in Premier League history along the
way.
