Captain Tomáš Rosický will miss the Czech Republic’s soccer friendly against Finland on Wednesday due to illness. Rosický, who on Saturday won England’s FA Cup with Arsenal, joined the Czech squad on Monday afternoon but on Tuesday reported gastroenteritis and has not travelled to Helsinki. Coach Pavel Vrba said he was disappointed but in any case wanted to experiment without the creative midfielder for part of the game.
