Qualifier for Blind Football Euros 2017 in Germany
13 April 2017: In Bacau (Romania), the Blind Football European qualifier was held in the beginning of April. The Czech national team participated in the event under the leadership of Jiří Kotrč set up from players from BSC Prague and Avoy MU Brno. The Czech squad mastered both matches in the group. They beat 2-1 both their opponents, Moldova and surprisingly Greece, the regular participants of former Euros. If winning the semifinal match they would qualify for Euro 2017, unfornately they lost the game 1-4 after a thrilling combat against Romania, later winners of the tournament. The Czech team then again played for the 3rd place against Greeks, but this time they were not able to keep pace with the strong opponent and after a loss 2-5 they ended up 4th. Lukáš Valer shot all the goals of the national team. Vojta Polášek and Aleš Moravec as well as the goalkeeper Tomáš Bukovský, all from Avoy MU Brno, were essential members of the Czech team defence.
