Jan Rezek

An experienced performer who played in five of his nation’s Euro 2012 qualifiers, this summer’s tournament is his first as a senior international.


After playing for a host of clubs in the Czech league in the last decade, Rezek shot to prominence as he led the line for Victoria Plzen in their title winning success last year, with Cypriot club Αnorthosis Famagu taking note of his performances and swooping to sign this goal poacher last summer.


Rezek was embroiled in controversy in a crucial Euro 2012 qualifier against Scotland last September, as he was accused of diving in the penalty box to win his side a crucial spot kick, which sealed his nation’s spot in the play-offs. Now they are preparing for tournament action, proving that a touch of gamesmanship can be a profitable tactic in top-level sport.
