England will be coming up against a familiar position in the form of Martin Skrtel when the team takes on Slovakia in a World Cup 2018 qualifying match this weekend.
England will be taking a huge step towards qualifying for the World Cup with a victory in the game, but one of the biggest challenges for Gareth Southgate’s team may come in the form of Martin Skrtel. The former Liverpool defender was not required by manager Jurgen Klopp just over 12 months ago, and this led to his departure from English football. He had been the mainstay at Liverpool for more than six years after having been brought in by former boss Rafa Benitez for around £ 6 million.
