The Czech Republic secured their direct qualification for the European Championship after defeating Moldova in the final evening of the qualification. They finished in second place with the same number of points as Albania. However, following their victory, Czech coach Jaroslav Šilhavy resigned due to the immense pressure. Before the match, Šilhavy and his staff made the decision not to continue working with the national team and informed Petar Fouska, the president of the association, about their decision.
Šilhavy led the Czech Republic’s national team in 58 games, achieving a win rate of 46.5%. He oversaw 28 victories, 10 draws, and 19 losses during his tenure. The Czech Republic had a successful run in the last European Championship, reaching the quarterfinals before being defeated by Denmark with a score of 2-1.
