Kick-off: 3.00pm local (2.00pm BST). Assistant referees: Jure Praprotnik (Slovenia) Robert Vukan (Slovenia) Fourth official: Jonas Eriksson (Sweden) Additional assistant referees: Matej Jug (Slovenia) Slavko Vinčić (Slovenia) Reserve assistant referee: Mathias Klasenius (Sweden) Man of the Match: Marek Hamšík (Slovakia) Slovakia enjoyed a splendid first half, scoring two goals and looking comfortable. Only in the last quarter of the game did the Russians spring into life, getting one goal back and putting some pressure on the Slovak defence, to no avail. While the win put Slovakia in a strong position to progress beyond the group stage, Russia - having now kept only two clean sheets in their last 17 games at European Championship finals - would be in need of a victory in their last group game against Wales.
