Pavel Nedved
FACTFILE
Pavel Nedved
Born: 30/08/72
Club: Juventus
Position: Midfielder
Debut: 05/06/94 v Ireland
Midfielder Pavel Nedved seems to have got better with age and was named European Football of the Year in 2003.

Nedved came to international renown in the Czech's surprise run to the Euro 96 final and earned him a move to Lazio.

He has been consistently brilliant in the Italian league, winning the title in 2001 before a switch to Juventus and more titles in 2002 and 2003.

Nedved missed the chance to play in the Champions League final last year through suspension.

The national captain and a talismanic figure to his team-mates, Euro 2004 represents an opportunity for Nedved to grasp greatness.

International success is the final frontier for Nedved after the Czech side disappointed at Euro 2000 and failed to qualify for the World Cup in 2002.


Did you know? Nedved's favourite actor is Mel Gibson and his favourite film is Braveheart.
