Slovakia lost 2 friendly games in a row.
On Tuesday 19th of July, just 2 days after U21 team earned bronze medal, Slovakia played two friendly matches against the host country of next EMF EURO – Hungary. They lost both as Hungarian team is hungry for home success in about 4 weeks.
1st match: Slovakia – Hungary 0:4 (0:2)
2nd match: Slovakia – Hungary 1:2 (0:2)
It was also a very first time for new Slovak coach Milan Bagin, to be on the bench of Slovak national team, and he said: “Well, it was not the best start of my career with Slovak national minifootball team, but I wanted to see the players on the pitch.
“The second match was much better from our side and not just because of the result. We played more aggressive, but in the same time more responsible. Its a pitty, because we had chances to make it a draw. Nevertheless, the most important games in 2016 start in four weeks and we are all excited.“
The squad of 20 players for EMF EURO 2016 must be announced by July 21st, so the coach has the last chance to decide who is still in the fight for the final 15 places.
