Adrián Kaprálik and Martin Mišovič should take part in final tournaments of UEFA u-21 EURO and 2023 FIFA u-20 WORLD CUP, respectively.
Pictured Kaprálik, born 2002, can make farewell to international youth career in summer of 2025, as Slovakia won the race for organising U21 EURO.
"We are all very happy that such a great tournament is coming to our country. It´s great news not only for us players, but for all the fans and the football in Slovakia," admits Kaprálik, MŠK Žilina winger.
Slovakia as the host team does not need to take part in qualification. Instead of tough must-win games they are set to play ´only´ friendlies within 2 and a half year.
"It´s going to be long pre-season. Although it will be friendly games, we need to do the best and get ready for competition with the best European teams," added Kaprálik, who is actually on pre-season with his club MŠK Žilina.
So far, he scored four goals and played against Bundesliga giant Union Berlin, where he made assist.
Also Martin Mišovič (born 2004) from Slovan Bratislava is looking forward to FIFA World Cup U20, where Slovakia got qualified through home U19 EURO where they reached knock-out stage.
The final tournament is held in Indonesia between 20th May and 11th June.
The list of participants is not completed yet, just except European teams where France, Italy, England and Israel got the ticket already.
"I am determined to work hard and get into final squad for the tournament," says Mišovič, one of the youngest players in current squad.
"Playing the World Cup is something special. We all look forward to huge experience and let´s see, what the group stage draw would look like," added Slovan winger.
We wish you good luck, guys.
