Only injury denied him the chance to improve that strike record. He also scored in Tottenham's Reserves' friendly win against RC Lens in November 2006.

In 2007 he represented his country in the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Canada as the youngest player in the squad having just turned 18. He played in all seven matches of the tournament, including the final against Argentina in which the Czechs finished runners up after Mauro Zarate scored the winning goal four minutes from full time for Argentina.
