England national football team will go head-to-head in their final group game of the Euro 2024 campaign when they take on the Slovenia national football team in their second Group C game at the RheinEnergieStadion. The Three Lions are expected to pick up the crucial three points.

England will aim for a positive outcome on Wednesday against a side that has struggled to secure points in the group stage. Matjaz Kek’s side have made a decent start to the campaign and could secure their spot in the knockout round with a win against fourth-placed Slovenia. They fought back from behind to earn a 1-1 draw against Denmark in their last game.

Manager Gareth Southgate would use this game to rotate and offer some valuable minutes to the rest of the squad. After an underwhelming display from Trent Alexander-Arnold in his last game, Jude Bellingham could pair up with Declan Rice in the centre of midfield, with Phil Foden occupying the No.10 spot. Cole Palmer who remained on the bench against Serbia and Denmark could start on Tuesday night.

Key Players to Watch out for

Jude Bellingham

The Real Madrid attacker was England’s match-winner in England’s opening game against Serbia. The 20-year-old was pivotal in leading Real Madrid to the La Liga and Champions League triumph last season. Last season, Bellingham scored 23 goals for Los Blancos across all competitions. He could be one of the standout performers in this Euro 2024 tournament.

The RB Leipzig striker recently extended his contract with the German club for one more season. Sesko who has earned 30 international caps and scored 11 goals for Slovenia is one of the most sought-after forwards in Europe, attracting interest from some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League. The 21-year-old forward scored 18 goals for Leipzig across all competitions in the 2023/24 campaign and clubs are ready to trigger an appealing £55m release clause for the talented forward.

England vs Slovenia Prediction

England national football team succumbed to a 1-1 draw with Denmark in their first game of the Euro 2024 campaign. The Three Lions are currently sitting at the top of Group C after two games. They have not tasted defeat at the group stage since their Euro 2004 opener against France.

Slovenia national football team, meanwhile, are still waiting for their first-ever win at the European Championship as an independent nation. They are currently in third of the group standings and a defeat on Tuesday would confirm their exit from the European Championships. They have a poor record against England and are yet to secure a win.

Predicted Score: England 2-0 Slovenia
