WEST HAM star Vladimir Coufal has been sent home from the Czech national team for "seriously breaking team rules".

Team-mates Jakub Brabec and Jan Kuchta have also been told to leave.

The Czechs have not yet qualified for Euro 2024.

They face Moldova in a crucial final group stage game tomorrow.

Jaroslav Silhavy's side need to avoid defeat to book their place in the tournament.

The players were meant to be resting for the match but less than 48 hours before kick-off the trio were reportedly out partying late into the night.

"Jakub Brabec, Vladimir Coufal and Jan Kuchta have left the national team meeting with immediate effect by the decision of the management."

Czech publication iSport claims the trio – along with FA chief Tomas Neumann – visited plush nightclub Belmondo in Olomouc.

It is claimed they stayed at the hotspot until the morning hours and linked up with amateur players from the area who were celebrating the end of their season.
