Čech believes his Chelsea will now win Europa League and set new milestone

The Czech soccer star Petr Čech says he believes his club Chelsea will win the Europa League, after on Thursday reaching the final with a win over Basel. In a post on his website, Čech says he and his teammates are motivated by the chance of becoming the first team to win the competition a year after taking the Champions League trophy, adding that Chelsea had given the lie to those who doubted they would take Europe’s second-tier club competition seriously. The goalkeeper has won virtually every trophy possible in nine years at the English club.
