Czech captain Rosicky to resume training
WROCLAW, Poland (AP) -- Injured Czech captain Tomas Rosicky is set to resume full training and be available for the Czech Republic's opening game at the European Championship.
Czech team doctor Petr Krejci says Rosicky "will train normally tomorrow,'' adding he hopes Rosicky "will be available on Friday.''
Krejci spoke Sunday after the team arrived by train at Wroclaw where it plays all three group stage matches.
Rosicky had a calf muscle injury in Arsenal's last English Premier League match on May 13 and has not properly trained since.
Without the playmaker, the Czechs were upset by Hungary 2-1 on Friday in the final warmup for the tournament co-hosted by Poland and Ukraine.
The Czechs open their Euro 2012 campaign against Russia on Friday before facing Greece and Poland in Group A.
