Victory over Slovakia would ensure Roy Hodgson’s men a much clearer run in the tournament, while the World Cup and Euro holders lie in wait if they should finish third
With four points from their opening two games, qualification for the last 16 of Euro 2016 is almost a foregone conclusion for England.
But their last clash against Slovakia is still of vital importance, as topping Group B would mean staying clear of some of the tournament’s toughest sides – not to mention one Cristiano Ronaldo.
A win for the Three Lions on Monday would guarantee them first place in the group, which would set up a match with the third-placed side in Groups A, C or D.
On the current standings those sides would be Albania (the first third-placed team to complete the group stages), Northern Ireland or Czech Republic.
Should Slovakia get the upper hand, however, the plot thickens for Roy Hodgson’s men.
A defeat would leave England in the best of scenarios in second place, and on course to meet Group F’s runners-up in the last 16 – currently occupied by Ronaldo’s Portugal.
If Slovakia and Wales both win, meanwhile, a real Pandora’s Box opens should the nation qualify all the same in third.
Either, Germany the probable winner of Group C, or Group D favourite Spain would stand in the way of the Three Lions and further progress in France.
