The most productive player of the last three extra-league years missed Sunday’s Motor match in České Budějovice because of it.

“Milan is ill, he is not feeling well and it looks like he will lose the national team. I don’t know the details, but I think that if he doesn’t feel like it, it’s not fair to other teammates to go there in an not ideal mood, “said South Bohemian coach Jaroslav Modrý.

On the Monday before the afternoon meeting of the national team in Holešovice, Gulaš’s national team also confirmed Gulaš’s exclusion from the nomination.
