On Monday, Belgium, spearheaded by Kevin De Bruyne, will commence their European Championship campaign facing Slovakia in Group E. The match kicks off in Frankfurt at 6 pm local time (1600 GMT).

Notably, Slovakia's coach, Francesco Calzona, brings a strong Italian influence to the team. Calzona, an interim coach at Napoli, looks to steer Slovakia, which is making its third consecutive Euro appearance as an independent nation.

Belgium, historically a strong contender, faces challenges with notable absences such as goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. This high-stakes opener is equally crucial for Slovakia, seeking to capitalize on their seasoned players.
