Ever since their excellent performance at the Euros in France, Slovakia has become an ambitious team and wants to compete with the best teams in the world.
This is no surprise when you know that they have managed to get out of a tough group at the Euros.
Robert Mak said that the Slovakian team is desperate to qualify for the World Cup in Russia and that they are giving their best to be part of the tournament. He said that he was part of the team that participated at the Euro 2016 in France and stated that this was an amazing experience. He believes that the team can make it to the World Cup and that it is important that each player gives their best on the field.
He admitted that England is the favorite team to win the automatic qualification for the World Cup in the group, but they have to continue to push in order to get the second place. He said that in football you never know and they could end up qualifying as winners of the group.
He believes that Slovakia should not be afraid of the big teams anymore as they have the players to compete at the highest level. Robert Mak said that this is because many of the Slovakian players now play in the biggest league in the world and that they are used to face good teams on a regular basis.
