Cech insists he will be ready for Euro decider

Czech goalkeeper Petr Cech insisted on Thursday he will be ready for Saturday's Euro 2012 Group A showdown with co-hosts Poland despite a shoulder problem.
"I can't say I could play this match if it were scheduled for today - but Saturday I'll surely be 100 percent," insisted Cech.
"I still have two days ahead of me and that's enough," added the 30-year-old Chelsea star.
The shoulder strain meant he only took part in light training.
But "tomorrow (Friday) I will be able to train normally without any limitations," said Cech.
He added he had forgotten about his error which enabled Greece to score a consolation goal in their match on Tuesday which the Czechs won 2-1.
"I don't look back - the main thing is we won the match."
The Czechs are a point behind Group A leaders Russia as they tackle the Poles, whom they lead by one point.
Cech meanwhile had a humorous riposte when asked if the Poles should play Wojciech Szczesny, returning from suspension, or Przemyslaw Tyton, who saved a penalty against Greece with his first touch.
"If I were the Polish coach I would play (striker Robert) Lewandowski," joked Cech.
