The rock of the Slovakian defense, Martin Skirtel will be tasked with anchoring his team’s back line against against a very dynamic English front line.  Sturridge will know his Liverpool team mate very well and will prepare accordingly, but the same can be said about Skirtel which should lead to an interesting battle.

After a promising display against Russia, Dele Alli proved a masterful performance against Wales. His calmness under pressure was one of many attributes in an eye catching display against the rigid Welsh team. His displays will go on to have a big say in what England can accomplish in France.

 

Daniel Sturridge

His injury time winner against Wales should propel Sturridge in to the starting line up against Slovakia. His pace and movements will be crucial to England and he will be looking to cause plenty of problems to the Slovakian back line.
