The Czech Republic’s victory against Moldova in the final evening of the qualification secured their direct qualification for the European Championship. However, after the match, Czech coach Jaroslav Šilhavy resigned due to the enormous pressure. He stated that before the game, he and his staff had made the decision not to continue working with the national team and informed the president of the association, Petar Fouska, about their decision.
Šilhavy led the national team in 58 games, winning 28, drawing 10, and losing 20 under his leadership. In their last European Championship appearance in 2016, they reached the quarterfinals but were defeated by Denmark with a score of 2-1. With Šilhavy’s departure from coaching duties, it remains to be seen who will lead them in future competitions.
