Czech goalscorer Petr Jiracek spoke of his relief after holding on to a 2-1 win over Greece that got their tournament back on track.
"We've made it, the goal was really important, and we're very happy right now," said a relieved Jiracek, who scored the opener.
"After five minutes we were on top, the crowd pushed us forward, but then we fell apart in the second half and had to fight till the end.
"We mustn't get too satisfied, we know we had to fight hard. Now we'll focus on the last game against Poland which will be terribly important and we've got to handle that."
