Watch: Slovakia’s Marek Hamšik Scores An Absolute Screamer Against Germany

of Germany battles for the ball with of Slovakia during the international friendly match between Germany and Slovakia at WWK-Arena on May 29, 2016 in Augsburg, Germany.

Germany and Slovakia are in action today in a warm-up friendly ahead of next month’s European Championships.

Both Joachim Löw and Ján Kozák have named strong sides ahead of the finalisation of the squads on Tuesday, and the away side will be the happier going into the half time break.

The WWK Arena – home of Bundesliga side Augsburg – is the venue for today’s international.

In a good contest, Napoli’s Marek Hamšik has scored the goal of the game so far, a thunderbolt five minutes before half time to even up the score at 1-1:

 

Mario Gómez put the home side in front after just twelve minutes, converting a penalty following a Juraj Kucka foul on midfielder Mario Götze.

Despite being in control for large parts of the game, Germany were pegged back by Hamšik’s effort, a fantastic strike from 30 yards out that gave Bernd Leno in the German goal no chance.

There were further problems for Germany as Slovakia went into the break in the lead, via a Michal Ďuriš header that Leno will definitely feel he should have done better with.

The score remains 2-1, but the second half has been delayed. Heavy rain and the potential threat of a thunderstorm have meant that the game is yet to resume.
