Milan Baros Plays For 63mins
Aston Villa's star striker Milan Baros managed 63 minutes for the Czech Republic.
Unfortunately his efforts weren't enough as the Republic went down to ten men and the Italians had the luxury of being able to contain Baros, sometimes with three defenders.
The Czech Republic, as well as the USA, are now out of the World Cup with Italy and Ghana winning their group.
Baros suffered a foot injury in pre-tournament training and so was unable to make the impact he had hoped for. The Czechs weren't helped by the fact Koller also picked up an injury which left them short up front (and I hope you understand there is a joke there - Koller - short up front? NO? I'm wasted here).
Just got to hope now that no one comes in and bids for Baros, I'd love to see him play next season in the claret and blue of Villa.
