The midfielder may have left Arsenal but he’s far from retired.

Tomas Rosicky has been called up for the Czech Republic ahead of Euro 2016 by coach Pavel Vrba. The midfield maestro may have only made one appearance for the Gunners this season but he’s got a good record for his national side, having featured 100 times and scored 22 goals.

Speaking about the decision, Vrba said that Tomas is training well and that he saw no reason not to bring him to the tournament.

The 35-year-old’s last appearance for his country was back in December 2015 against Iceland. This was before he had to undergo knee surgery, which also kept him out for the majority of his season at Arsenal.

The midfielder is now out of contract and looking for a new club after 10 years in north London. It’s sad to see a player of his skill and ability leave but with his habit of picking up injuries, it’s for the best.
