Tomas Rosicky is confident that the Czech Republic can end Scotland's Euro 2012 qualification dreams in Lithuania.

The Scots face current European and world Champions Spain in Alicante aiming to equal the Czechs' result.

Craig Levein's side are just a point above the Czechs in Group I with one game remaining and hope to become the first team to win in Spain since 2006.

Wins over Liechtenstein and Lithuania in their last two matches have given Scotland a chance to qualify for a major tournament for the first time since World Cup '98.

The team finishing in second place in the group will have to go through the qualification play-offs, where they will face a two-legged fixture against a nation from another qualification group.

The Czech Republic head to Lithuania on the back of a 2-0 home defeat to Spain on Friday and also lost at home to Tuesday's opponents last September.

Arsenal midfielder Rosicky is determined to progress through to the next phase.

Attack them

He told the Daily Record: "We all know what is at stake in Lithuania and we will be motivated. Our tactics are very clear - we will go out there and attack them.

"Let's look at the table after these games and that will show who is better between Scotland and us.

"However, I'm convinced we are a better side than Scotland.

"Nothing has changed for us. We knew we would have to go to Kaunas and take something. Last year, we lost at home to Lithuania and we want those points backs.

"We were in this position in the qualification for World Cup 2006 when we needed to beat Finland in the last game. We did it then, so why not now?"
