With Sparta, Nedvěd won one Czechoslovak First League and two Gambrinus liga titles, as well as one Czech Cup.
But it was Nedvěd's performances at Euro 1996 playing for the national side, including a goal in the group stage match against Italy, that gained him notoriety; and despite apparently having a verbal agreement with PSV Eindhoven, Nedvěd made the move from Sparta to Italian Serie A outfit Lazio.

Well known for his energy and tireless runs, refined dribbling, as well as his powerful shooting and goal scoring abilities, Nedvěd was nicknamed 'Furia Ceca' by Italian fans - 'The Czech Cannon' in English-speaking media.
Captain of his country, Nedved won the Ballon d'Or in 2003 becoming only the second Czech player in history to be European footballer of the year.
