WROCLAW, Poland (AP) — Czech Republic captain Tomas Rosicky and goalkeeper Petr Cech are at a hospital in Wroclaw to have scans after being injured in their team's 2-1 win over Greece at the European Championship.

Rosicky injured his Achilles tendon and had to be substituted after the first half of Tuesday's Group A match.

The playmaker's creative skills were instrumental in the Czech Republic's 2-0 lead at halftime. He was replaced by Daniel Kolar for the second half.

Team officials said on Wednesday Cech has a shoulder problem without giving further details. Cech's blunder allowed the Greeks to come back in the match.

The two are the major stars on the team and the Czechs would struggle without them in the final group match against Poland on Saturday.
