The Czech Republic national football team represents the Czech Republic in association football and is controlled by the Football Association of the Czech Republic, the governing body for football in the Czech Republic. Historically the team participated in FIFA and UEFA competitions as Bohemia, Austria-Hungary, and Czechoslovakia, finishing second at the 1934 and 1962 World Cups and winning the European Championship in 1976.

The national team was founded in 1901, existing under the previously mentioned names before the separation of Czechoslovakia in 1992. Their first international competition as the Czech Republic was the UEFA Euro 1996, where they finished runners-up, and they have taken part in every European Championship since. However, following the separation, they have only featured in one FIFA World Cup, the 2006 tournament, where they were eliminated in the first round of the competition.

Squad

Current squad
