Tomas Rosicky has returned to the Czech Republic’s national team after almost a year of injuries.

The creative midfielder was included Thursday in the 28-man European Championship preliminary squad announced by coach Pavel Vrba ahead of the team’s training camp in Austria.

Rosicky, who has made 100 international appearances, injured his knee in a Euro 2016 qualifying match against Iceland in June.

When he recovered, he was injured again playing for Arsenal in an FA Cup match against Burnley in January.

The 35-year-old Rosicky didn’t play at all in the Premier League last season.
