Hodgson mulls striker options for Slovakia

By The Assam Tribune

SAINT-ETIENNE (FRANCE), June 19: England take on Slovakia tomorrow in the key battle for first place in Group B at Euro 2016 with Roy Hodgson mulling over which of his strikers to deploy.

Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge proved their form by coming off the bench to dig England out of trouble in their 2-1 win over Wales in Lens.

England manager Hodgson has an embarrassment of riches up front, but Harry Kane, who started in the 1-1 draw against Russia and win over Wales, has struggled to make an impact in France.

Vardy�s equaliser against Wales cancelled out Gareth Bale�s thunderbolt free-kick before Sturridge broke Welsh hearts with the late winner.

Leicester City�s Vardy says he would be content with another cameo off the bench in Saint-Etienne having

come on after the break against the Welsh.

�I�d more than happy with that. We�ll have to wait till Monday what team the boss puts out and hopefully we can get the job done,� said Vardy.

�I think it is tough for him, but competition for places is good for the squad itself.

�And with the options we have got available, we can use different systems as well.� � AFP
