England vs. Slovakia - Matchup - Nation flags encircled. England will look to right the ship on Monday when they take on Slovakia in Group A action at the UEFA U21 Championship in Poland.

Slovakia is currently sitting at the top of Group A after defeating host nation Poland 2-1 in their first contest, while England is two points back after playing Sweden to a scoreless draw in their first contest. Sweden is not an easy team, as evidenced by the fact that they are the event's defending champions, so England would be well-served to turn in a strong performance on Monday.

Draw 1-1, 6/1
