March 18, 2013

The Czech Republic has increased its fire power by adding Lazio striker Libor Kozak to the squad for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Denmark and Armenia.

The 23-year-old Kozak was called in Monday to face Denmark at home on Friday and four days later in Armenia after he helped Lazio reach the quarterfinals of Europa League by scoring a hat trick in a 3-1 victory over Stuttgart on Thursday.

With the three goals, Kozak has become the leading scorer in Europa League with eight.

He has just one international game on his record.


The Czechs are third in Group B with five points from three matches. Italy leads the group with 10 points from four matches.
