Rosicky confirms injury-enforced absence

Czech Republic captain Tomas Rosicky has announced that he will not feature in his side's clash with Turkey in their final Euro 2016 group fixture.

Rosicky pulled his hamstring in his side's 2-2 draw with Croatia on Friday and subsequently revealed that he would not feature again in the European championship.

"The leg is not alright, and it is clear that this is the end of the championship for me. I definitely will not play against Turkey – the boys will have a great fight for everything," he told CT sport.

'The little Mozart' as he is affectionately known, will part ways with his club Arsenal after spending ten years with the north London outfit – making 246 appearances, scoring 28 goals and providing 22 assists.

The 35-year-old also commented on his team's memorable comeback from two goals down to earn a point against the Croatians at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard in Saint-Etienne.

"There were two totally different periods – at first we were afraid, but we left everything on the field," Rosicky concluded.
