Three Czech national soccer team players sent home day before crucial game

Three players have been sent home from the Czech national soccer squad, one day before a crucial Euro 2024 qualifier. The Czech FA said on social media on Sunday that Jakub Brabec, Vladimír Coufal and Jan Kuchta had left the group after a gross breach of internal rules, without specifying what they had done.

The news comes before a game against Moldova in Olomouc on Monday that the Czechs must either win or draw in order to qualify for next year’s European Championship.

All three players sent home were in the starting line-up for the Czechs’ last game against Poland on Friday.
