Tomáš Rosický (pronounced /ˈto̞.maːʃ ˈro̞.sɪʦˌkiː/ (Tom-aash Ro-sits-ski); born October 4, 1980 in Prague) is a Czech international football player, who currently plays his club football for the English Premier League side Arsenal. He is known for his long range shooting, great control and passing.

An attacking midfielder nicknamed 'the Little Mozart', Rosický is known for his phenomenal work-rate and his eye for a pass, and brilliance to keep the ball.

On May 23, 2006, Arsenal confirmed that they had signed Rosický on a long-term contract. The transfer fee was undisclosed but was rumoured to be in the region of £6.8 million due to a get-out clause in his contract at Borussia Dortmund. Rosický took over the number 7 shirt which was formerly worn by Frenchman Robert Pirès.

On August 8, 2006, Rosický made his competitive debut for Arsenal in their first leg Champions League third round qualifier against Dinamo Zagreb, playing on the left-wing. On 13 September, Rosický scored his first goal for Arsenal in an away game at Hamburger SV, with a spectacular long-range effort from 30 yards. Tomáš Rosický scored his first Premiership goal against Wigan Athletic on February 11, 2007.

Rosický again started the 2007-08 season deployed as a left midfielder. On August 29 he scored his first competitive goal of the season in a game against his former club Sparta Prague, scoring just after 7 minutes with a low drive from inside the box, following good work from Theo Walcott. Rosický kept up his good form while playing against Portsmouth F.C to score his first Premier League goal of the season with a fierce shot from an acute angle.

Rosický made his international debut in 2000 aged 19, against the Republic of Ireland, and has recorded over 50 caps overall. He played for his country at Euro 2000 and Euro 2004 and helped the side qualify for the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Rosický shone for his country in the group stages of the qualification campaign, scoring several goals from the penalty spot and setting up Milan Baroš and Jan Koller in particular with accurate and precise passing. He also scored the winning goal in the second leg of the Czech Republic's play-off against Norway, to ensure qualification for the finals.

In the 2006 World Cup finals, Rosický scored two goals in the Czech Republic's 3-0 victory over the United States in their opening match, on June 12, 2006. The Czech Republic went out at the World Cup in the group stages, with Rosický forced to move into the attack after injuries to both of the country's star strikers, Jan Koller and Milan Baroš.

At the beginning of the 2006-07 season Rosický was made captain of the Czech Republic national side, replacing the retiring Pavel Nedvěd.
