Kozak names Slovakia Euro 2016 squad

Slovakia coach Jan Kozak has unveiled a 23-man squad for Euro 2016, with experienced attacker Robert Vittek failing to make the final roster.

The Slovaks impressed in the Euro 2016 qualifiers, with the team beating reigning champions Spain in the process and they certainly have big ambitions for the upcoming showpiece tournament in France.

Jan Kozak’s troops kick off their Euro 2016 campaign with a match against Wales on 11 June and they will be looking to build on the performance they produced in a 3-1 win over Germany at the weekend.

Coach Jan Kozak will count on all his star players for the 2016 European Championship finals, with the likes of Marek Hamsik, Martin Skrtel and Juraj Kucka all making the cut.

Robert Vittek had been earlier ruled out through injury, but Kozak opted against major changes to his standard group.

Lukas Tesak, Matus Bero, Erik Sabo and Adam Zrelak have been discarded from the provisional squad, meaning that they will not represent Slovakia at Euro 2016.
