The Czech Republic dropped young striker Vaclav Kadlec for this month's World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Bulgaria, his omission the only change to a squad that has not scored in three matches since the Euro 2012 championships.
The team will again be without injured captain Tomas Rosicky, who is weeks away from returning to the Arsenal lineup from an Achilles injury.
Coach Michal Bilek said he could still add players to the squad before the home matches against Malta on Oct. 12 and Bulgaria on Oct. 16.
The Czech attack will feature 20-year-old Watford striker Matej Vydra and 23-year-old Nuremberg player Tomas Pekhart.
The team drew 0-0 away at Denmark in their opening Group B qualifier last month.
