Kozak Targets Win against Scotland

Extremely poor form at the start of the World Cup qualification campaign has led to Slovakia being in a dire state even after just only four games. Manager Jan Kozak says that the only hope for the national team when it comes to qualifying for the World Cup 2018 is to beat Scotland in the next game.

It represents one of the toughest fixtures for the national team in the qualification campaign apart from facing England. A good start to the campaign is always essential when it comes to qualification and Slovakia certainly did not achieve this after back-to-back defeats.



Slovakia defender Jan Durica accused the referee of wrongdoing when he awarded ex-Reds defender Martin Skrtel another yellow card for a foul when England played Slovakia.

The 10-man Slovakia side were not able to recover, gifting the Three Lions one step in Russia in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
England won the game narrowly with the help of a Red player Adam Lallana who scored in stoppage time, sending fans wild in excitement. The win gives new coach Sam Allardyce a brilliant start as manager of the side, and it means England can take full control in Group F.
