Čech injured in Champions League tie

Star football goalkeeper Petr Čech suffered a shoulder injury in Chelsea’s match on Tuesday against Atletico Madrid which has put him out for the rest of the season. Čech collided with Atletico’s Raul Garcia and came off in just the 18th minute. He was replaced by 41-year-old Mark Schwarzer, making only his second appearance in the competition. The semi-final ended 0:0. The teams will meet next week for the second-leg at Stamford Bridge.
