Euro Predictions 2024 | England vs Slovenia

Match Prediction: England vs Slovenia UEFA European Championship 2024

This England side will have the weight of expectation on its shoulders. They have reached the latter stages of major tournaments a few times now, and the fans will be hoping the players can use this experience to their advantage. They still have youth on their side, and there is hope that the core of this side can gel well together for years to come.

On the other hand, Slovenia is far less star-studded but has impressed recently. The world might expect an England victory, but this Slovenian side should not be taken lightly. This game is considered a must-win for England, while for Slovenia, it is an opportunity to make a name for themselves.




How did they qualify?

Having the advantage of a relatively soft group, Slovenia finished second behind Denmark on goal difference. They won an impressive seven out of ten games, showcasing their potential in this tournament.

England, meanwhile, absolutely walked qualifying, winning six games and drawing two. Once England beat Italy away early on in the campaign, qualifying for the tournament was never really in doubt.

Team Analysis

With England's attacking talent, they should look to dominate every game of football they play. Evidently, they are the superior side and will undoubtedly have the lion's share of possession, so it will all come down to how wisely they use this possession.

For Slovenia to stand any chance in this match, they must be very compact, giving little away. If they attempt to play England at their own game, this match will only go one way, so expect a game of attack and defence with the odd counterattack here and then.

Players to watch

As already alluded to, this England side is full of attacking talent. We could name a complete list of players likely to impact this tournament, but instead, we have decided to highlight two players currently playing outside of England.

- Harry Kane: The 30-year-old footballer has scored many goals for club and country. Despite this, the prolific forward has yet to lift a trophy for his efforts. He enters this tournament among the favourites, and few would begrudge him some silverware

- Jude Bellingham: This man was already regarded as a future star, but his elevation at Madrid now sees him as arguably England's most important player. He is likely to be a considerable influence for England this Euros 2024

We have already established how good England's side is and the chances they are likely to create. Their goalkeeper will need to play considerably well for this to be the case.

- Jan Oblak: If Slovenia are to proceed to the latter stages of this tournament, they will be relying on keeping clean sheets. Thankfully, they have one of the best goalkeepers in the world who is used to playing in a defensive system


England will look to dominate this game, and the result will depend on how clinical they are. Slovenia will look solid, hoping to score a goal and claim a famous victory. Overall, we don't see that happening and expect England to have too much on this occasion.
