Slovak National Football Team Prepares for Euro 2024 with Two Friendly Matches


In the lead-up to their highly anticipated appearance at the Euro 2024 championship, the squad under the guidance of coach Francesco Calzona is gearing up for a pivotal two-match examination. First up, they’ll face San Marino in the picturesque setting of Wiener Neustadte, Austria. San Marino, a team that struggled in the EURO qualifiers, securing zero points in a challenging group comprising Denmark, Slovenia, Finland, Kazakhstan, and Northern Ireland, presents an opportunity for Slovakia to fine-tune their strategies.

Ranked at a modest 210th position in the FIFA rankings, San Marino has historically struggled against Slovakia, with the Slovaks boasting four victories in four encounters during qualifying campaigns for major tournaments. Notably, Slovakia’s dominant performances, including record-breaking home wins of 7-0, underscore their superiority in these matchups.

Following their encounter with San Marino, Slovakia’s final dress rehearsal will unfold on Sunday, June 9th, against Wales. While the venue for this fixture is yet to be confirmed, Wales, ranked 29th in the FIFA rankings, presents a sterner test. Despite past encounters favoring Wales, including a memorable victory in the Euro 2016 group stage, Slovakia has demonstrated resilience, notably securing a draw in their last face-off during Euro 2020 qualifying.

As Slovakia fine-tunes their strategies and tactics, these preparatory matches offer invaluable insights and opportunities for the team to gel before their Euro 2024 campaign kicks off.
