Euro2016: The pressure will be on the English - Slovakia, Liverpool defender Skrtel

Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel has claimed that the pressure will firmly be on England when the two nations meet in their final Euro2016 group game on Monday.

The Three Lions currently top Group B with four points from their two games while Slovakia and Wales have managed three points and are jostling for a place in the top three.

Slovakia skipper Skrtel suggests there are plenty of attacking threats he and his teammates will have to worry about but feels that all the onus will be on England to make the play in Saint-Etienne.

"There's not just (Daniel) Sturridge, Jamie Vardy or Harry Kane. There are not just the strikers and the midfielders," said Skrtel.

"There are 11 players we have to beat.

"The smaller countries have probably got more team spirit, especially when they come up against the big countries.

"The pressure will be on the English, though I think they have enough experience to be able to handle it.

"It's all going to come down to what happens on the pitch, and I think we can reproduce our performance against Russia. We showed heart, character and motivation."
