Euro 2020: Sweden, Slovakia Seek Crucial Points In Today’s Clash

Slovakia and Sweden will be eyeing to take a step towards the knockout stages of the UEFA Euro 2020 when they lock horns in a Group B clash on Friday

Both teams had impressive starts to the tournament as Slovakia took all 3 points from Poland and Sweden held Spain to a point.

The last time Sweden met Slovakia was in a friendly encounter in 2018 that ended in a 1-1 draw.

On Friday, though, there will be a lot at stake, as both teams push to enter the knockout stages.
