Potential Dark Horse for upcoming Euro 2016, Slovakia have already announced their final 23 men squad, with star players such as Marek Hamsik, Martin Skrtel and Juraj Kucka all called up.
Head coach, Jan Kozak practically didn’t make anything out of the ordinary with his decision, noting that his important players are fit and ready to contribute.
Hamsik is obviously the main man who Kozak expect to lead Slovakia in France as the Napoli star has that leadership quality along with excellent technical abilities.
