In Sports News: the Czech Republic will face Italy, Ghana and the United States in the group stage at next year's football world cup - we get the reaction of Czech manager Karel Bruckner; Karel Poborsky is definitely not returning to Sparta Prague; and ski jumper Jakub Janda becomes the first Czech in over two decades to win a World Cup event in front of a domestic audience.
Czechs to face Italy, Ghana, USA in World Cup
While most commentators describe it is a relatively tough group, the Czech manager says he will have to learn more about their opponents before assessing the task ahead.
The second game will be against Ghana, with Italy last. The Czechs will have to go all out to come first in Group E - whoever qualifies second is likely to face favourites Brazil in the knock-out stage.
Poborsky set to stay with second division club Ceske Budejovice for rest of season
"Of course my position in the national team played a big role, but I spoke to the coach and his reaction was positive, luckily. He said the alternative of me staying at Ceske Budejovice was acceptable to him. So life goes on."
Janda tops podium in ski jumping competition in front of home fans
"I'm wearing the yellow jersey at the moment and everybody was expecting so much from me. I wasn't sure how well I had jumped but when I reached the bottom I saw that my jump was 141 m, and I said to myself, maybe that will be enough. I always have to wait to see the official distance before I will believe a jump has been good."
