Milan Baros is one of four British-based players in Karel Bruckner's Czech squad.
Czech Republic coach Karel Bruckner has included four British-based players in his squad for next month's Euro 2008 qualifiers.
The Czechs play host to minnows San Marino on October 7 before tackling Republic of Ireland four days later in Dublin.
Bruckner, as expected, has called on Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech and Arsenal playmaker Tomas Rosicky, while Milan Baros is selected despite his lack of first-team action.
Baros has not started a competitive game since the World Cup and has been used sporadically by Martin O'Neill this season, but Bruckner has kept faith with the Aston Villa striker.
Rangers' summer arrival Libor Sionko is included and there is a place for uncapped Slovan Liberec goalkeeper Marek Cech in Bruckner's squad.
Marek Cech has impressed in the Czech league this season and will provide back-up to namesake Petr.
Squad in full:
Jaromir Blazek (Sparta Prague), Marek Cech (Liberec), Petr Cech (Chelsea); Zdenek Grygera (Ajax), Marek Jankulovski (Milan), Martin Jiranek (Spartak Moscow), David Rozehnal (Paris Saint Germain), Tomas Ujfalusi (Fiorentina), Radoslav Kovac (Spartak Moscow), Tomas Zapotocny (Liberec); Tomas Galasek (Nuremberg), David Jarolim (Hamburg), Jaroslav Plasil (Monaco), Jan Polak (Nuremberg), Tomas Rosicky (Arsenal), Libor Sionko (Rangers), Tomas Sivok (Sparta Prague); Milan Baros (Aston Villa), Jan Koller (Monaco), Marek Kulic (Mlada Boleslav), David Lafata (Jablonec)
