Slovakia vs England Team News

Tomas Hubocan has overcome his injury and he is likely to keep his place in the starting line-up. Norbert Gyomber remains doubtful, but coach Jan Kozak has no fresh injury worries ahead of the England game. The Slovakia coach is widely expected to field the same starting line-up that faced Russia. As before, a man to watch in Jan Kozak’s team will be Marek Hamsik, who scored a wonder goal in the 2-1 victory over Leonid Slutsky’s troops.

Injured: None

Doubtful: Norbert Gyomber (13/0)

Suspended: None

Raheem Sterling and Harry Kane are both likely to drop to the bench after the duo failed to impress in previous two group games at Euro 2021 finals. Jamie Vardy came from the bench and scored in the 2-1 win over Wales and he is likely to be recalled to the starting line-up. Daniel Sturridge is pushing for a start as well, while Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere could play some part against Slovakia. Joe Hart should keep his place in goal despite failing to impress against Wales.

Injured: None

Doubtful: None

Suspended: None

Quick Facts

  • Over 2.5 goals were scored in five of Slovakia’s previous six games
  • Slovakia are after their first ever win over England
  • The Three Lions emerged triumphant in each of their last three meetings with Slovakia
  • Jamie Vardy scored his 4th goal for England against Wales
  • Marek Hamsik could earn his 90th cap for Slovakia against England

Slovakia vs England Prediction

England are with one foot in the Euro 2021 last 16 and seeing that Slovakia would be happy with one points from Monday’s game, there is every chance both teams will adopt a cautious approach in their final group match. Jan Kozak and Roy Hodgson are unlikely to take any risks in the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard clash and, taking everything into account, there is every chance the two teams will share the spoils this time out.
