Slovakia’s national football team lost their game against Scotland. The qualifying match for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia ended 0:1. The only goal in the match was scored by Martin Škrteľ, who scored an own goal.

Slovakia is currently third in group F with 15 points.

The last match in the qualifier will take place in Trnava, Slovakia against Malta on October 8. The match starts at 18:00 local time.

Game Summary: Slovakia - Scotland 0:1 (0:0); Scorers: ŠKRTEĽ Martin (89.).
