The Czech Republic national football team (Czech: Česká fotbalová reprezentace) represents the Czech Republic in international football. The team is controlled by the Football Association of the Czech Republic (FAČR). Historically, the team participated in FIFA and UEFA competitions as Bohemia and Czechoslovakia.

Following the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, the first international competition of the Czech Republic was the UEFA Euro 1996, where they finished runners-up, and they have taken part in every European Championship since. Following the separation, they have featured in one FIFA World Cup, the 2006 tournament.

The present-day Czech Republic national football team is recognized as the successor of the Czechoslovakia team by FIFA and UEFA.[2][3] They have won one Euro in 1976, and were World Cup finalists twice, in 1934 and 1962 .
