How to watch England vs Slovakia for FREE: TV channel and live stream for Euro 2024 game today

England meet Slovakia today in their last-16 tie at Euro 2024.

The Three Lions are heavy favourites and will be desperate to step things up a notch in Gelsenkirchen this evening after a hugely lacklustre group stage showing that led to plenty of criticism aimed at under-fire manager Gareth Southgate.


Having opened with a nervy win over Serbia, England then played out woeful draws with both Denmark and Slovenia but still managed to top Group C despite scoring just twice in three games.

They had looked set for a blockbuster first knockout showdown with the Netherlands this weekend, though Georgia’s shock win over Portugal in Group F resulted in them being paired with Slovakia on Sunday night instead.

Francesco Calzona’s side are clear underdogs having got through as one of the four best-third place finishers at the tournament, but have already shown what they are capable of by upsetting fancied Belgium before a late defeat by Ukraine and draw with Romania.

Slovakia have never previously beaten England and managed only one draw in six attempts, at Euro 2016. Their last meeting was a 2-1 World Cup qualifying loss at Wembley in September 2017.
