Euro 2012: One to watch - Theodor Gebre Selassie (Czech Republic)

Country: Czech Republic

Caps: 8

Goals: 0

Club: FC Slovan Liberec

Age: 25

Position: Defender

Born to a Czech mother and Ethiopian father, Gebre Selassie is the first person of colour to represent the Czech Republic.

A tenacious, hard-tackling right back, he is equally at home in a flat back four or as a more defensive-minded wing back.

His lack of experience against big name players shouldn’t be too much of a problem as he will be ably covered by German based Roman Hubnik and Michal Kadlec, as well as Beskitas’ Tomas Sivok in defence.
