The Czech Republic have pledged not to ease up against Germany on Wednesday despite fielding an weakened team.

After securing a place in the last eight, coach Karel Brueckner said he would rest key players for the final game.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech, however claims that the Czechs are still out for revenge for their defeat to Germany in the final of Euro 96.

“I remember watching that game at home with my family and it was very disappointing,” Cech said.

“It would be good to send them home for a change after the next game. We have not beaten Germany for a long time so we will take this game very seriously.

“I’m sure the coach will make changes but the players coming from the bench will be going all out to win.”

Meanwhile, striker Milan Baros said the players play to win.

“We haven’t beaten them much so that’s why we want to win,’ said the Liverpool striker.

“This is Germany, it’s a big challenge and the players who play will put everything into the game.”
