England are yet to seal a place in the Round of 16 and need at least a point against Slovakia to ensure their progress. They have to get all three points if they want to guarantee top spot in Group B and guarantee a favourable draw in the next phase of the competition. Roy Hodgson, however, is ready to gamble on the Three Lions' place in the tournament and ring in the changes as he looks to keep the team fresh for the remainder of the tournament.

Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge are likely to start following their impressive showing during England's 2-1 win over Wales, while Dele Alli could make way for Jack Wilshere in midfield. The manager could be tempted to rest full-backs Kyle Walker and Danny Rose and give Ryan Bertrand and Nathaniel Clyne an outing in defence. Gary Cahill faces the risk of being suspended for the Round of 16 clash if he picks up a yellow during the game against the Slovakians, but Hodgson is unlikely to change his central defensive pairing of Cahill and Chris Smalling for the crucial game.

Slovakia also have a chance to top the group with a win over England, but would qualify for the next phase of the tournament and would finish second even if they get just one point, but this depends on Wales' result against Russia. If the Welsh match Slovakia's result they will be ahead owing to a better head-to-head record, but four points should give Jan Kozak's team a good chance to qualify as one of the best third-placed teams.

Kozak has also indicated that he will make changes to counter the Three Lions' style of play, but some of the manager's changes could also be influenced by the number of Slovakian players at risk of missing their next game if they pick up a booking against England. Hrošovský, Kucka, Mak, Škrtel, Weiss and Durica are one booking away from facing a one-match suspension.

England lead the head-to-head between the two nations 3-0, with their last encounter being in an international friendly in 2009, which the Three Lions won 4-0.

What manager's say

Roy Hodgson (England): "The players are in good shape. It wouldn't be a problem if I wanted to keep the same side, but there are players who would like to play and have been knocking on the door. Jamie [Vardy] and Daniel [Sturridge] did very well when they came on and would like another chance. We have options in those front positions. It's a decision that has to be made.

There are lots in the Slovakia team who we have to watch out for. The front line, with [Marek] Hamsik, [Ondrej] Duda and [Vladimír] Weiss are good attacking players. All we can do is hope our performance on the night is good enough to beat them."

Jan Kozak (Slovakia): "I am going to make some changes to the team again, because the game demands it. England will be a different proposition from Russia – I know that very well. They play a different way, so we have to do something to prepare for that. To be honest, we do not have a strong enough team to play an open game against a team like England. We have to focus on our style if we want to be successful.

We have tried to prepare as well as we possibly can and we're looking forward to it. As for England's attack, we might say one thing, then something entirely different could happen on the day. We need to show respect to our opponent, but we also carry a threat ourselves."
