England and Slovakia will be looking for automatic qualification when they meet for the final Group stage game at Stade Geoffroy Guichard on Monday night. England based on their standard, had a decent start to the tournament, they drew 1–1 against Russia in the first game while managed to somehow gain 3 points in last game against Wales. Daniel Sturridge was hero in that match as his strike in 92 minute helped Three Lions to get all three points.
Slovakia on the other hand has been brilliant. They lost first match 2–1 against Wales but were brilliant on the field. Marek Hamsik has been the standout player for the Slovakia in the tournament as he provided one assists and a goal in 2–0 win over Russia. They will have to get atleast one point to be safe but it will be hard considering the opposition they are facing in the last match.
