The Scout: Euro 2024 Matchday 15

England v Slovakia

England continue to disappoint with just two goals scored in three group games. Conor Gallagher replaced Trent Alexander-Arnold in midfield last time out but was substituted at half time. Phil Foden returned to England for the birth of his third child during the week but is back with the squad. Left back Luke Shaw could finally return from injury.

A point against Romania was enough for Slovakia to qualify for the last 16 and they will look to make life difficult for England. Coach Francesco Calzona won’t tinker too much with his team but must decide between Robert Bozenik and David Strelec up front. Experienced goalkeeper Martin Dubravka and captain Milan Skriniar are vital defensively.

England WIN

Spain v Georgia

Spain rested 10 players for their final group fixture against Albania and still won 1-0. They look in great shape and will likely revert to their strongest side with Rodri returning from suspension. Nacho and Ayoze Perez are injury doubts. Youngsters Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams will again be key for an exciting Spain team.

As feel-good stories go, Georgia’s is right up there in what is their first major international tournament. Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Georges Mikautadze, the leader in the race for the Golden Boot, will be exciting in attack again. At the other end of the pitch, Giorgi Mamardashvili has been Euro 2024’s best goalkeeper.

Spain WIN


England v Slovakia – Under 2.5 total goals

Harry Kane – Over 0.5 shots on target

Rodri – Over 1.5 fouls
