Petr Cech returns to Czech Republic squad after fracturing his skull

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech returned Monday to the Czech Republic squad for a friendly against Belgium next week.
Cech was out for more than three months after fracturing his skull in an Oct. 14 collision with Reading midfielder Stephen Hunt in the Premier League. He returned for Chelsea on Jan. 20 against Liverpool.
"He is still our No. 1," national squad spokesman Lukas Tucek said.
Coach Karel Bruckner named Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky, Lyon striker Milan Baros and Monaco forward Jan Koller in his 18-man squad for the Feb. 7 match.
