Fair Play prize
The Czechs, who reached the semi-final in Portugal before losing 1-0 to eventual European champions Greece, won the tournament's Fair Play prize, which they collected at the weekend.
Czech coach Karel Brückner and captain Tomáš Galásek received the award from UEFA Executive Committee member Marios N Lefkaritis before Saturday's FIFA World Cup qualifier against Romania at the Letná stadium in Prague. The Czechs won the game 1-0 with a first-half penalty from Jan Koller.
Brückner's team finished top of the EURO 2004™ Fair Play rankings with an average mark of 8.5 over their five matches. According to UEFA, they "showed true sportsmanship during the tournament, in which they played attractive football".
