Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech is on the verge of making history for the Czech Republic, with the veteran shot-stopper on course to become his country’s most-capped star. The 33-year-old has made 117 appearances for the Nároďák, and will surpass Karel Poborsky’s total of 118 if he features against Serbia and Poland this month.
He’s been a regular for his country for 13 years, and is now on course to become the Czech’s highest appearance maker. Cech has shone for his new club this season, delivering standout showings between the sticks since his move from London rivals Chelsea, and will be hoping to shine for his country on what could be a landmark month in his career.
Not only should Cech beat Poborsky’s record number of caps for the Czech Republic, he could see an unassailable total. The experienced shot-stopper has plenty of years ahead of him in his career, and trumps any other goalkeeper from native country as things stand. As a result, the Arsenal man could be a record appearance maker for some time, further cementing his place among the greatest ever goalkeepers.
The Czech Republic are 7/5 to in against Serbia in tonight’s international friendly, which will see Cech be a joint appearance-maker for his country if he starts.
