England face tricky opposition in Slovakia, who are looking to compete with Wales for second place in the group.

They have won one game and lost the other so far, but how do the two teams compare in the other stats? Oulala decided to find out. And as it transpires that England have been the better team as they came out on top in seven key areas.

The two sides have scored the same amount of goal, but England have been better defensively, conceding one fewer goal.

Interestingly though the Slovakians have enjoyed a better tackle success rate as well as winning more interceptions.

Elsewhere England are dominant, having played more successful passes, created more chances and had more shots on goal.

They have also enjoyed a better possession rate, a higher pass completion and a better shot accuracy than their opponents.

With a lot riding on the game, they will now be hoping that they can enjoy similar success as they seek to end the group stages of Euro 2016 on a high.
