The Slovakia vs Spain Euro 2020 game starts today (Wednesday, June 23) at 5 p.m. BST / 12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT. In the U.S., it's available on ESPN. In the U.K., you can watch on ITV and the ITV Hub. Full channel details below.
The Slovakia vs Spain live stream is here, and it's one of two games today that brings Euro 2020 Group E to a close. And it's a crucial one, as both teams need points to secure a place in the last 16. Spain in particular will be looking for their first win of the tournament; this may be their last chance.
However, who progresses out of the group will depend not only on this match but also on the Sweden vs Poland game set to take place concurrently. But the short version is that Slovakia only need a draw to advance, whereas Spain will only survive on a point if Poland fail against group leaders Sweden.

Those aren't the worst odds, though Spain will want to get back into goalscoring form before the knockout stage; they've dominated the ball in previous games but only found the net once. Fortunately, captain Sergio Busquets is at last likely to be involved, having missed Spain's earlier games after a positive Covid-19 test.
Slovakia have a Covid-induced absentee of their own, defender Denis Vavro, but again only need a point to continue their better-than-expected Euro 2020 campaign. With a mixture of experienced players like captain Marek Hamsík and young talent, including main goal threat Robert Bozenik, Slovakia could become one of the more surprising names in the final 16.
Slovakia (4-2-3-1): Dubravka; Pekarik, Satka, Skriniar, Hubocan; Kucka, Hromada; Haraslin, Hamsik, Mak; Duda.
Spain (4-3-3): Simon; Azpilicueta, Garcia, Laporte, Alba; Busquets, Koke, Pedri; Moreno, Morata, Sarabia.
The match begins today (Wednesday, June 23) at 5 p.m. BST (12 p.m. ET / 9 a.m. PT). The full broadcast, including build-up and post-game commentary, will be free to watch from anywhere — just follow our guide to find out how.
