The series of champions has now expanded to include one more champion. It is no one smaller, than the representational captain Miroslav Kadlec.
"You would not believe, what goes through your head, on your way from mid-field. Most often, if you put it right, left, or middle, up, down, … Finally, you are there, somehow you kick it and you think ‚hurray',“ the football defender recalls on his decisive penalty in the semi-finals with France, which ensured the Czech team the title of the Vice-Championship. The football stopper used to play on the now non-existent post of Libero. He excelled at balancing balls from the space between goalkeeper and the remaining defenders, supported the offensive with a precise passing and occasionally ran to backup outnumbered opponents, which he particularly enjoyed. „Basically, I did what I wanted to,“ laughs the football player, whose greatest advantage was his excellent right foot. It was exactly that leg that allowed him to precisely target the corners of the goal and score 42 goals in the top competitions. "I think this is a pretty decent statistic for the defender," proudly adds Miroslav Kadlec.
The dominant element of the reverse side of the gold coin from the workshop of Mgr. Petr Horák is a faithful portrait of the footballer, which is complemented by his signature, his name and the inscriptions Europe Champion 1996, ANGLIE (ENGLAND).
