The Czech national football team is the national football team of the Czech Republic and is controlled by the Football Association of the Czech Republic.

Before World War IBohemia (present-day Czech Republic), while being part of Austria-Hungary, played seven matches between 1903 and 1908, six of them against Hungary and one against England. Bohemia also played a match against Germany in 1939 while being the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.

When the Czech Republic was part of Czechoslovakia, the national team had runner-up finishes in World Cups (19341962) and a European Championship win in 1976. After Czechoslovakia split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the national team was reformed, and played its first match against Turkey in 1994.

Now, the Czech Republic is continuing its football tradition, finishing second in Euro 96 and making the semifinals of Euro 2004. They made their first World Cup as an independent country in 2006 and they currently are the second-ranked country on Earth according to the FIFA World Rankings behind only powerhouse Brazil.

The Under-21 national team of Czech Republic won the European championship in 2002.
