"It was a tough decision. Holosko isn't 100% fit. Or, he may be fit but we don't know what to expect in a real match. It's the same with Vittek. We'll see in the next few days," said Weiss.
Leeds United defender Lubomir Michalik was cut from the initial 29-man squad, but West Brom's Marek Cech and the coach's son, Man City midfielder Vladimir Weiss, who ended last season on loan at Bolton, were named in the squad.
Chelsea youngster Miroslav Stoch was also included, the 20-year-old attacking midfielder having enjoyed a successful loan spell at FC Twente, scoring 12 goals as he helped them win the Dutch title.
