Czech striker Milan Baros retires
Czech Republic striker Milan Baros has retired from
The Czech team says Baros announced his decision to quit after
the Czechs were eliminated from the European Championship following
a 1-0 loss to Portugal in the quarterfinals Thursday.
The 30-year-old has been the second best Czech scorer of all
time with 41 goals in 93 international games.
Baros was the best scorer at the 2004 Euros and also won the
Champions League with Liverpool, but has been struggling on the
national team in recent years and netted just once in the Euro 2012
qualifying campaign. He didn’t score at the tournament and was
repeatedly booed by fans.
Baros plays for Galatasaray.
