The country needs three points to advance. It will have a chance to gain them in the match against Belarus which takes place on October 9 in Žilina.

None of the players complained about health problems before the match, said Slovak representation coach Ján Kozák, whose ambitions before the match are clear.

“It would be good to win, at least because the atmosphere at the stadium during the whole qualification was fantastic,” Kozák said, as quoted by the TASR newswire, adding that all matches were sold out and the fans came to support the Slovak team. “We would like to reward them with a victory.”

Even if Slovakia does not win the match, there is still a certain chance that the country will advance to France.
