England reach Euro 2024 quarter-finals after comeback win against Slovakia

The Three Lions win mean they will face of Switzerland in the quarter-finals, ITV News' Graham Stothard reports

England take a 2-1 victory against Slovakia in the last-16 clash of the Euros 2024.

The two sides met in Gelsenkirchen, with the Three Lions win meaning they will face of Switzerland in the quarter-finals.

Speaking on ITV after the game, Harry Kane said it was "the desire and attitude from the boys and staff and everyone involved," that secured the win.

"It looked tough for a second there but we kept going. We’ve worked on so many details, we put a long throw in a couple of days ago and we said we might need it.

“Then Jude does what Jude does, it was an unbelievable goal and it kept our tournament alive.

“I think it’s one of the best (goals) in our country’s history. What a player he is. He works so hard for the team. There’s been a lot of talk about him in the last couple of days and it shows what he can do in the big moments, to step up and that’s what we needed everyone to do, to step up.

“We know we’ll do whatever it takes. If it’s another game like this in the quarter-finals, so be it. This team knows how to dig deep and we’ve done that today. Of course we could have done better but ultimately it’s a results business.

“We’ll enjoy the comeback and hopefully take the momentum into the rest of the tournament.”

In the 25th minute, a long ball forward was not dealt with by the England defence and David Strelec slipped in Ivan Schranz to score his third goal of the finals.

With the match deep into stoppage time England drew level as Guehi flicked on a long throw and Bellingham delivered a stunning overhead kick.

Slovakia looked out on their feet at full-time and it did not take England long to capitalise at the start of extra time as Kane headed home a flick-on from late substitute Ivan Toney to turn the tie on its head.

England reached the halfway stage of extra time with their hard-fought 2-1 lead intact as Southgate introduced fresh legs in the shape of Conor Gallagher and Ezri Konsa, with Kane and Bellingham making way.

Southgate's team will take on Switzerland in Dusseldorf next Saturday.
