Pavel Vrba, Czech Republic coach
Iceland were tough to play against. They were better than us and we struggled after a good start. Iceland have improved massively over recent years. They've worked hard on their football, especially the youth sides. Iceland is an opponent that nobody wants to play against.
We know that Turkey and the Netherlands won and that is not good. We need to focus on the games against Kazakshtan and Latvia in September. We need to play well there to keep our good position.
Daily DNES spoke to Tomáš Rosický's parents ahead of their son's 100th international appearance for the Czech Republic.

It is wonderful that he has got as far as 100 games." Rosický's parents will be watching him on TV tonight.
