SLUGA'S CROATIA QUALIFY FOR EUROS - IRELAND IN CRUNCH MATCH TONIGHT AGAINST DANES!

Croatia secure qualification with victory over Slovakia

18 November 2019

Congratulations to Hatters goalkeeper Simon Sluga who was part of the Croatia squad that qualified for UEFA Euro 2020 after they defeated Slovakia on Saturday in Rijeka.

In a group that includes Wales and Hungary, Zlatko Dalić’s team defeated Slovakia 3-1, with goals from Nikola Vlasic, Bruno Petkovic and Ivan Perisic securing the result, having gone 1-0 down in the first half. The win means they finish top of Group E.

James Collins will be looking to play a part in the Republic of Ireland’s crunch qualifier this evening as they face Denmark in Dublin.

A victory for Mick McCarthy’s team would see them secure automatic qualification, but they come up against a side who currently top Group D. Kick-off for the game is at 7.45pm, so make sure you follow the action to see how the Boys in Green get on.

An appearance for Collo would see him make his fifth appearance for his country, having made his goalscoring debut in September against Bulgaria.

England Under-20s are in action tomorrow night at Adams Park, as they face Iceland Under-20s where Luke Bolton will be hoping to make an appearance, having not got on in their 4-0 victory over Portugal last Thursday.
