Petr Gabriel (born 17 May 1973 in Prague) is a Czech former football player. He played for the Czech Republic, for which he took part in eight matches and participated at the Euro 2000. On 11 June 2000, Gabriel gave away a penalty in the 89th minute of his national team's game against the Netherlands. The decision was fiercely contested by Czech players and widely perceived as controversial. The Czechs lost 0 1 after Frank de Boer successfully converted the spot kick.

In the decisive group stage match against France, he was rather unlucky again, as he tried to make a backpass to his goalkeeper, which was picked up by Thierry Henry, who succeeded in scoring. The Czechs lost 2 1 and ended their participation in the tournament after the group stage despite a 2 0 victory in their last match against Denmark.
