The Czech Republic national football team represents the Czech Republic in international football and took part in their first international competition in 1996. These were the Euros where they finished as runners-up. They have taken part in every European Championship since then.

Petr Čech is the most capped player in the history of the Czech Republic. He has made a total of 124 appearances for the national team.
