England are set to face Slovakia in the knockout stages of Euro 2024, hoping to bring some much-needed excitement to their campaign.

The Three Lions' performance in Germany has been lacklustre so far, with fans eagerly awaiting a display of the free-flowing football they've been missing this month.

Despite finishing at the top of Group C, England managed only one victory in their three group matches, scoring a mere two goals against Serbia, Denmark, and Slovenia.

A round of 16 showdown with Slovakia, who came third in Group E, is on the cards for the Euro 2020 runners-up today. A win would pit England against Switzerland in the quarter-finals.

Ahead of the crucial Sunday match, here's everything you need to know about England vs Slovakia, including kick-off time, TV channel, and how to stream the action.

When does the match start?

The match will commence at 5pm on Sunday (June 30) at the Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen. This is the only stadium where England have tasted victory in the tournament so far, thanks to Jude Bellingham's winning goal against Serbia in England's Euro 2024 opener.

Where can I watch England vs Slovakia?

The England v Slovakia match will be broadcast on ITV1, with coverage starting from 3.30pm, hosted by lead anchor Mark Pougatch. The match can also be streamed live online via the ITVX platform and app, available on various devices.

What's the team news?

The teams will be announced roughly an hour before the game is due to kick off, at around 4pm. No wholesale changes are expected, though Gareth Southgate is expected to name Kobbie Mainoo in the starting XI for the first time, with Chelsea's Conor Gallagher dropping back to the bench. There have also been calls for Anthony Gordon to start, with Phil Foden having missed a chunk of training this week for the birth of his child.
