West Ham United’s Tomáš Souček will be in contention to feature for the Czech Republic when they host Moldova in the European qualifiers on Monday.

Last week, the midfielder scored in his country’s 1-1 draw against Poland and the clash also saw him receive a boot to his face.

The West Ham player received treatment twice during the game and had also received more treatment from the national team doctors after the tie.

Ahead of the Czech Republic’s clash against Moldova, the 28-year-old spoke to the reporters and also provided an update on his situation. He has heaped praise on the medical staff for treating him and his quotes are relayed by České Noviny.

“The match in Poland was quite unpleasant. I’m glad that the doctors did a great job and I was able to finish the match. They sewed me up after the match. Of course, it’s not ideal, it’s better not to have it,” he said.

The Hammers man has also revealed he can train normally, but would need a protective gear when he comes on the pitch later today.

“Today [Sunday] in training I will train the way I am. Tomorrow in the match I’ll probably need to do something about it. I will talk to the doctors about the best option. Maybe we will try today to see how it goes so that I can prepare as best as possible for the match,” Souček explained.

It’s clear the player doesn’t have to spend time away from the pitch and this should please both David Moyes and West Ham.

Souček has scored five goals and registered one assist from 17 games this season.
