Jan Žambůrek handed maiden Czech Republic Under-19 call-up

Brentford B midfielder latest Bee to receive call-up

27 August 2019

Jan Žambůrek has received his maiden call up to the Czech Republic Under-19 squad for two friendlies next month.

Luboš Kozel’s side begin with a game in Zurich against Switzerland on Thursday 5 September before moving on to Tubize for a meeting with Belgium on Tuesday 10 September. These games are in preparation for October’s Under-19 European Championship qualifiers for which the Czechs will face San Marino, Azerbaijan, and Norway on home soil.

Jan has won 36 caps for the Czech Republic across four age groups, with his 13 caps at Under-18 level all coming during his time in West London. He has four goals at international level, one of those coming for the Under-18s.

In February, Jan became the first player born in the 2000s to appear in a competitive Brentford match when he made his debut against Hull City at Griffin Park. This term’s opener against Birmingham City saw Jan make his second professional appearance with his first competitive start coming against Cambridge United in the Carabao Cup a fortnight ago.
