Czech Republic skipper Tomas Rosicky firmly believes he will be match-fit for Euro 2012 after being sidelined with a calf problem.

The tricky Arsenal midfielder has not been in full training during the Czech team's stay in Austrian village Bad Waltersdorf and is set to miss their friendly against Israel.

He could also be out for the last match prior to the Euros against Hungary.

However, the 31-year-old remains confident he will be fully fit for next month's competition and has upped his gym training without any reoccurrence of the injury.

"It does not make me nervous anyhow. I count on being 100 per cent ready for the Euros. There is no space for risking now. We would be silly if we did something like that (let Rosicky play)," he said.

"Everything was fine (following the change to his gym routine), it's in a good way."

Despite Rosicky feeling fitter, he added that there was no deadline for him to be back in full training with two weeks left before the competition.

"I can't say any date, so far it depends only on how I feel. I can't tell how the situation will develop," the Czech captain said.

Czech coach Michal Bilek also echoed Rosicky's comments, adding: "There are still two weeks and that's plenty of time for Tomas to be fully fit."
