Czech Republic Vs. Portugal, Euro 2012 Quarterfinals: Lineups

Portugal's lineup is exactly as expected for their Euro 2012 quarterfinal, but the team news is a bit surprising for the Czech Republic. Not only is Tomas Rosicky not fit enough to start, but his primary backup Daniel Kolar hasn't been selected. Instead, 21-year-old Victoria Plzen midfielder Vladimir Darida will start, playing in just his third match for the Czech Republic. Otherwise, the team is exactly as expected.

Czech Republic Lineup (4-2-3-1): Petr Cech; David Limberský, Michal Kadlec, Tomáš Sivok, Theodor Gebre Selassie; Tomáš Hübschman, Jaroslav Plašil; Václav Pilař, Vladimir Darida, Petr Jiráček; Milan Baroš

Portugal Lineup (4-3-3): Rui Patrício; Fábio Coentrão, Bruno Alves, Pepe, João Pereira; Miguel Veloso, João Moutinho, Raul Meireles; Cristiano Ronaldo, Hélder Postiga, Nani

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET from the National Stadium in Warsaw, Poland. You can catch the game on ESPN in the United States.
