Good news for the Czech national team ahead of the EM quarter-finals against Denmark in Baku. Captain Vladimir Darida (30) can play Saturday (6 p.m.).
The Hertha BSC midfielder said at the closing press conference on Friday afternoon: “I am 100 percent ready for the game. I’m ready to play right from the start. “
Darida was able to train completely again after he had to pass in the round of 16 against Holland (2-0).
The 2004 quarter-finals were repeated in Baku, when the Czechs won 3-0 over Denmark.
“We have a great chance of success and can go far,” says Darida of his teams’ prospects.
How does the Hertha professional think of Denmark?
“The Danes don’t have the glamor like France or the Netherlands, but they have a very strong team. We’re not the favorites, “says Darida, who regrets one thing very much:” We’re sorry that our fans can’t be there. “
