Euro 2020 Slovakia Squad- All you need to know; Fixtures & Group Standings, full Slovakia squad, Key Players, Predictions
Euro 2020 Slovakia Preview: After reaching the last 16 at the European Championship five years ago, Slovakia’s hopes for success at this year’s tournament will be pinned on the same player as last time.
The opposite was true for Sweden, which reached the quarter-finals for the first time since 1994. None of these factors might matter at the Euros, but the point is that there are fair cases for both Sweden and Poland to finish as runner-ups of this group.
Slovakia in Group E of Euro 2020: Slovakia is in the same group as Spain, Sweden, and Poland. Slovakia will take on Poland on June 14, while taking on Sweden on June 18. Slovakia’s last match is against Spain on June 23.
Slovakia in Group E: Head-to-head record
Group E at Euro 2021 will consist of Spain, Poland, Sweden, and Slovakia. The winner of the group will face third-place from either Group A, B, C, or D in the Round of 16 – which is likely to be one of Switzerland, Turkey, Denmark, Russia, Ukraine, Austria, Scotland, or the Czech Republic.
The team that finishes runner-up in Group E will play the second-placed team from Group D in the first knockout phase; most likely to be either Croatia or England.

Slovakia squad for Euro 2020:
Goalkeepers: Martin Dubravka, Marek Rodak, Dusan Kuciak
Defenders: Peter Pekarik, Lubomir Satka, Denis Vavro, Milan Skriniar, Tomas Hubocan, Jakub Holubek

Forwards:Michal Duris, Robert Bozenik, David Strelec
Coach: Stefan Tarkovic
Players to watch out for:
Marek Hamsik- Slovakia relies on Hamsik’s creativity and vision. No one has played more games or scored more goals for the national team. The big question for Slovakia, however, is whether the 34-year-old attacking midfielder can still produce on the biggest stage.
Martin Dubravka- The Newcastle goalkeeper will be crucial for Slovakia. In 101 appearances in the Premier League, Dubravka has 29 clean sheets. He made his national team debut in 2014 and has 25 caps for Slovakia.
