Round-of-16 Clash: England vs Slovakia

England will face Slovakia in the round of 16. Slovakia finished third in Group E, where all teams scored four points.

Gareth Southgate’s men will need to step up their game after a 1-0 victory over Serbia, a 1-1 draw with Denmark, and a 0-0 stalemate with Slovenia.

Potential Quarter-Final Showdown

The Grand Finale

Kick-Off Time: 8pm UK Time
Venue: Berlin

The ultimate goal is to have the final match in Berlin. If England can navigate through their side of the draw, they will meet one of the tournament favorites—France, Portugal, Spain, or hosts Germany—in what promises to be a thrilling conclusion to Euro 2024.

Southgate’s Optimism

Despite the criticism for their group stage performance, Gareth Southgate remains optimistic. “I thought we were much improved with the ball,” Southgate said following Slovenia’s 0-0 draw. “We created some good openings, and at the moment, it is hard work for us. We’re not quite getting that break in front of goal. But we’ve had the discipline to keep a clean sheet, meaning we topped the group.”

England fans eagerly await the knockout stages, hoping their team will rise to the occasion. The match against Slovakia is just the beginning of what could be a historic journey to the Euro 2024 final.
