Veteran midfielder Tomas Rosicky was the surprise inclusion in the final 23 despite playing only a few minutes for Arsenal in an injury-ravaged season, his last for the London club.
Those who failed to make the cut after being included in a provisional 28-man squad included midfielder Lukas Marecek and strikers Matej Vydra and Patrik Schick.
Slavia Prague’s Milan Skoda got the nod ahead of Vydra while Roman Hubnik was a surprise selection as an extra defender.
Midfielders Martin Frydek and Lukas Vacha failed to make the provisional 28-man list after falling out of favour following injuries during the season.
