Milan Baroš was selected Carlsberg Man of the Match after his goal helped the Czech Republic overturn a one-goal deficit against Latvia in their UEFA EURO 2004™ Group D game in Aveiro.
Audacious volley After a quiet first-half in which he was restricted to an audacious but unsuccessful volley, Baroš became a much greater threat as the Czechs wore down the valiant Latvians in the second period. Just after the hour he met a right-wing cross from Poborský, but failed to hit the target.
Vital equaliser A short time later, the Latvian goakeeper saved a Baroš shot and coach Karel Brückner responded by adding Vladimir Šmicer to the fray. Within minutes, the Liverpool FC striker scored a vital equaliser, hammering the ball in from ten metres. By now the running was with the Czech's and Baroš continued to press before Marek Heinz scored the winner.
