Slovakia Euro 2020

formation and potential players let’s get to know Slovakia’s national team.

Slovakia qualified for three major international competitions, UEFA Euro 2016, 2010 FIFA World Cup, and UEFA Euro 2020. But they got a long history in qualifying competitions; after world war II, Slovakia’s national team merged into Czechoslovakia! Slovakia didn’t play any game as an independent country for over 50 years but won EUFA Euro 1976 under the Czechoslovakia flag.

They also were in Euro 1996, Euro 2012, and Euro 2016 qualifying but they didn’t make it to Eurogames. Euro 2020 may be another story for Slovakia! So, let’s see what’s

Slovakia will most probably use a 4-2-3-1 formation for Euro 2020 which means they will have four defenders for defending their goal, two defensive midfielders, three attacking midfielders, and one striker to continually attack the opponent. This formation keeps making the game balanced and adds more fluidity to the team.

In football, everything is about the attack and defense! the first thing you need is to keep your goal safe; then you will have time and the opportunity for attacks. As for the formation, 4-2-3-1 is one of the best formations to maintain defense and concentrate on the attack at the same time. For the team though, it’s a bit different! So, let’s get into

He has been described in the media as the successor to former Liverpool icon Martin Škrtel in Slovakia's defensive line. He has also drawn praise from several Italian pundits for his positional sense, as well as his ability in the air, and one-on-one situations.

CB: Lubomir Satka

Lubomir Satka

has played for Slovakia U-17, U-18, U-19, U-21 national teams. We couldn’t find any record of him playing Eurogames! But he has some abilities that make him a good choice for this position.

Ondrej Duda made his first international debut for Slovakia in November 2014. He played in UEFA Euro 2016 and scored an equalizing goal against Wales which finally ended up in a 2-1 loss.
