Tomáš Rosický keen to represent country

Arsenal midfielder Tomáš Rosický has confirmed his desire to continue playing for the Czech national football squad. Rosický gave the message to newly installed team manager Pavel Vrba over the weekend. Following the Czech failure to qualify for this year’s world cup, Rosický suggested he might concentrate solely on his club career. Vrba was visiting a number of Czech players based in England and had the chance to watch Arsenal and Chelsea’s home games. Rosický, 33, although temporarily sidelined with an injury, is currently enjoying one of his most successful spells at Arsenal.
