Pavel Nedvěd is a retired Czech footballer. Perhaps one of the most iconic footballers in his homeland, Nedvěd enjoyed a successful career, mainly in the Serie A. He is known for his surging runs down the left flank and his powerful shot.

Nedvěd began playing football in his native Czech Republic. He moved to local giants Sparta Prague and won the league title in only his first season at the capital. After spending four seasons in Prague, he was snapped up by S.S. Lazio following his good performances at Euro 1996.

Club Football

In the summer of 1996, Nedvěd moved to Rome and enjoyed a successful spell at the Italian capital. He quickly became a crowd favourite and formed a formidable midfield with the likes of Dejan Stanković and Robero Mancini. At the 1999 UEFA Cup Winners' Cup final, his goal in the 81st minute sealed the title for the biancocelesti.

After the end of the decade, Lazio suffered financial problems and Nedvěd was signed by Serie A giants Juventus for €41 million as a replacement for Zinedine Zidane, who had left for Real Madrid. He became a fan favourite and gained the nickname La Furia Ceca (The Czech Fury) due to his relentless energy and runs down the left wing.

When Juventus were forcibly relegated due to the match-fixing scandal, Nedvěd's future was heavily discussed but he decided to stay in Turin in order to help the club gain promotion to Serie A. Together fellow veterans David Trézéguet and captain Alessandro Del Piero, the three of them scored 47 of the 83 goals Juve scored in Serie B as they won promotion at the first time of asking.

Nedvěd initially planned to retire after the 2007-08 season but decided to extended his contract for another season in order to play in the Champions League for the last time. During the 2008-09 season, he announced his retirement in a press conference despite calls from some fans to postpone it. He played his last game as a professional against Lazio, his former team, and was handed the captain's armband for the day by his good friend Alessandro Del Piero. Juventus won 2-0 to finish in second place with Nedvěd supplying the assist for Vincenzo Iaquinta's second goal of the match. After the final whistle, he was given a standing ovation by both Juve and Lazio fans.

International Football

Nedvěd made his full international debut in November 1992 against Romania. He was one of the key players in the Czechs' run to the final at the Euro 1996 and has also captained the team on many occasions.

Initially Nedvěd retired after the Euro 2004, in which he was named in the Team of the Tournament. However, he came out of retirement and helped the Czech Republic qualify for their first World Cup since the break-up of Czechoslovakia. However, they were unable to advance to the knockout stages and he made his retirement final in August 2006. He refused calls from teammates to come out of retirement to play at the Euro 2008.
