Slovakia coach Ladislav Jurkemik has named his squad for the crucial Euro Qualifiers with Turkey in Bratislava and England at the Riverside...
Jurkemik has left out goalkeeper Juraj Bucek, defenders Branislav Labant and Radoslav Zabavník, and forwards Henrich Bencík and Jozef Kožlej.
The Slovaks are currently third in Group 7, four points behind Sven's men who lead the group following that stunning victory over Turkey. Slovakia may even do England a favour before the two team meet at The Riverside.
Slovakia entertain Turkey in Bratislava on 7 June, and we saw what a tough place that can be to visit when Beckham and Owen were forced to strike vital goals to ensure England brought all three goals back home with them in October.
Jurkemik, who has included 17 foreign-based players in his squad, said: "Only a victory against Turkey will keep our chances alive. If we can win in Bratislava, the game in Middlesbrough becomes interesting."
England face Slovakia at The Riverside on Wednesday June 11, kick-off 8pm.
König, Rzeszoto, Petráš, Klimpl, Hlinka, Debnár, Zeman, Hanek, Leitner, Karhan, Michalík, Labant, Kisel, Mintál, Janocko, Demo, Németh, Vittek, Oravec, Reiter.
