Don’t expect Wayne Rooney, Harry Kane, Dele Alli or Danny Rose to play in this game, as England’s manager, Roy Hodgson, is expecting to rest these players for this final game in Group B, per the BBC. Instead, Daniel Sturridge, Jamie Vardy, Jack Wilshire and Ryan Bertrand are expected to start this game.
Slovakia, fresh off their win over Russia, isn’t expecting to fix a line-up that isn’t broken, but they have six players with yellow cards. They may walk away with a win in this match, but if star players – including Martin Skrtel – wind up suspended, it could lose them the Euro Cup in the long run.
Really, it doesn’t matter who plays because this game is going to be epic. While England sits on top of Group B (and is guaranteed a top-3 finish, per Sky Sports) they can’t really goof off against Slovakia. The gents from Slovakia desperately need this win to get to the next round. And while Martin plays alongside some of Team England’s players, don’t expect him to show any mercy.
“In a game like this,” he told reporters, per The Washington Post, “there are no such things like friends. If you ask Daniel [Sturridge], he’d answer the same. We just try and do the best we can for our team. If that means having to kick him if he is through on goal, then yes. Of course I will.” So, expect Slovakia to play this game like their lives depend on it!
Who do you think is going to win this match, HollywoodLifers? Slovakia or England?
