“Our group seems to be quite even,” said coach Ján Kozák before the match, as quoted by the SITA newswire. “I expect England, with its quality and strength, will be far from us, but the other teams will fight for second play-off place.”

Slovakia will now have 6 points in the F group. It was already defeated by England and Slovenia, but won the match against Scotland.
