  • GOALLL!! 1-0 SLOVAKIA! Gregus drills a right-footed effort past Gordon from 25 yards out low into the bottom left corner. Initially, Duris had done well to turn Cooper and hold-up the ball as he waited for Pekarik to join the attack on the right-hand side.

  • Tierney drops his shoulder and beats Kucka near the left-hand touchline, which leaves Kucka no option other than to foul him and for his efforts, he earns the hosts' first yellow card of the game.

  • Clarke isn't hanging about as he throws on another striker to chase the game. Griffiths is the man trusted to make the difference as he comes on for centre-back Considine, meaning the visitors will shift to a regulation four-man defence.
