Stats and facts

● This will be England and Slovenia’s second encounter at a major tournament; England won 1-0 in the group stages of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

● Slovenia have won none of their six matches against England, in all competitions (D1 L5). Greece and fellow Group C side Denmark are the only opponents they have faced on more occasions (seven) without ever winning a single match.

● England are looking to go through to a fourth consecutive UEFA EURO group stage unbeaten, having done so at 2012, 2016 and 2020. They’ve won on matchday three at three of their last four European Championship tournaments (D1) since losing 3-2 to Romania at EURO 2000 under Kevin Keegan.

● Slovenia have played more matches without winning at the UEFA EURO than any other nation, drawing four and losing one of their five games. Indeed, they have never beaten a European nation at a major tournament, also losing both games at the World Cup in 2010 against Spain and England.

● England have won 34 of their last 37 matches in which they have scored the first goal (D3), although two of their failures to do so have come across the last two UEFA EURO tournaments – the 2020 final vs Italy (1-1) and on MD2 this year against Denmark (1-1).

● Slovenia are unbeaten in their last eight games in all competitions (W4 D4), only enjoying a longer unbeaten run once in their history (nine games between September 2020 and March 2021).

● Petar Stojanovic won possession eleven times for Slovenia in their matchday two game against Serbia – in a major tournament game, the only Slovenian player to win possession more was Ales Ceh at EURO 2000 against Spain (14).

Harry Kane has scored five goals in his last six UEFA EURO appearances, with only Wayne Rooney (6) and Alan Shearer (7) scoring more EURO goals for England.
