Euro 2024: We’ll ‘Torment’ England  —Slovakia Captain

Slovakia’s captain Milan Skriniar is relishing the chance to ‘torment’ England and has declared that his side are the superior team.

In Friday press conference, Skriniar exposed England’s vulnerabilities and emphasised Slovakia’s self-belief ahead of their last-16 showdown on Sunday.

England will face a Slovakia side who scraped through the Euro 2024 group stages as one of the better third-placed teams.

An opening-game victory over Belgium proved their ability to claim a marquee scalp but they subsequently lost to Ukraine and drew with Romania.

“I believe we will torment them. We have to try to play our game. The whole team believes that we can surprise them,” said Skriniar.

“We have the weapons to defeat them. Of course, they are definitely better than us, but with teamwork we can beat them.

“They have a squad full of stars, but as a team we are better.

“We’ve been together for a month, but it feels like we just met yesterday. We are happy to be together, we spend time together outside the field.

“They will be under much more pressure and that can play in our favour.

“I felt from their previous performances that they rely a lot on individual quality and know that they have players who can decide matches. However, we can manage it as a team.”
