Petr Jiracek

Jiracek was one of the stars of the Viktoria Plzen that claimed the Czech league title last season and he went on to impress in their Champions League campaign, as they mixed it with Lionel Messi and Barcelona in the group stages. His impressive performances sparked transfer speculation that ended with him making a move to the German Bundesliga last January.


His rise to prominence at club level has gone in tandem with his elevation up the Czech national team ranks and after making his debut in the Euro 2012 qualifiers against Scotland in Glasgow last September, Jiracek quickly began to establish a niche for himself in Michal Bilek’s Czech Republic midfield.


A goal scorer in the Euro 2012 play-off win against Montenegro, he has gone from being outside the national team squad set-up to a player likely to see some tournament action this summer.
