Tomas Rosicky was named to the final 23-man Euro 2012 squad for the Czech Republic on Tuesday, although the Arsenal midfielder has fitness concerns ahead of the tournament.

The 31-year-old Rosicky made his debut for the Czech Republic in 2000, and has played 85 times for his country. But he joined the club with fitness concerns, but now expects to be ready for the start of the tournament in over a week.

Czech coach Michal Bilek needed to make just one cut on the deadline to submit final teams for Euros, and goalie Tomas Grigar was left off the squad.

The Czech Republic plays Hungary in its last pre-Euro friendly, and will open the tournament against Russia on June 8. Bilek's side also plays Greece and co-host Poland in Group A.

Following is the complete Czech Republic roster:

Goalkeepers: Petr Cech (Chelsea), Jaroslav Drobny (Hamburg), Jan Lastuvka (Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk).

Defenders: Theodor Gebre Selassie (Slovan Liberec), Roman Hubn���k (Hertha Berlin), Michal Kadlec (Bayer Leverkusen), David Limbersky (Viktoria Plzen), Tomas Sivok (Besiktas), Marek Suchy (Spartak Moscow).
