SLOVAKIA 1-2 ENGLAND
It's all over. England turn it around in the second half to give their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages a boost. They are now top of the group on four points ahead of Slovakia on three.
Poland and Sweden meet later this evening, also on Sky Sports.
90+4: A booking for Baker as he falls on the ball and hits it with his hand. Nearly the full-time whistle...
90+2: England with a chance to use up some time as they win a corner. Ward-Prowse in no rush to take it.
90: Four minutes to be added on as Woodrow elects not to run into the corner and instead goes inside and loses it. Slovakia come again...
89: England very much on the back foot, but dealing with everything that is being thrown at them so far...
88: England make their final change as Abraham is replaced by Woodrow.
86: Booking for Murphy as he blocks off a run from Safranko rather blatantly.
84: Slovakia pushing forward as the game nears its conclusion. Still, though, they aren't really creating clear chances.
82: Gray's first involvement is somewhat wasteful as he takes too long over a pass through to Abraham and it's cut out. As he has done a few times, the Chelsea striker shows his frustration at not getting the ball.
80: England eat up a little more time as Swift wanders off to be replaced by Gray.
79: Eventually Abraham gets to his feet and he seems fine to play on. Slovakia looking a little frustrated as Safranko then knocks over Chalobah.
77: Slovakia not happy as Abraham stays on the floor after a challenge. Looked like he was caught in the face...
WATCH: ENGLAND GO AHEAD
Here's a look at the goal from Redmond to make it 2-1...
75: Another corner causes England problems as it's not properly cleared and then falls for a shot from inside the box that's blocked.
73: Change for Slovakia as Mihalik is replaced by Haraslin.
72: Slovakia are playing quite narrow and they are finding it tough to get through. England steal the ball and then break, with Swift seeing a shot comfortably saved from the right corner of the box.
70: Abraham wins a clever foul as he is bundled in the back by Skriniar. The Chelsea striker shakes his head in frustration, but he did well considering he didn't have support.
67: The second half has been far more end to end than the first, and Slovakia are now throwing much more forward now they are behind.
65: Double change for Slovakia and Chrien and Zrelak make way for Safranko and Benes.
64: Appeals for a penalty from Slovakia as a cross hits Murphy, but the referee says no. Murphy appeared to pause after the ball hit him, and replays show it did strike his hand.
Slovakian frustration compounded as Mazan is then booked for bringing down Murphy.
GOAL! SLOVAKIA 1-2 ENGLAND (Redmond 61)
England have turned it around. Redmond is picked out in space on the left side of the box, steps inside and then hits a shot which, with the aid of a deflection, flies past the keeper.
WATCH: MAWSON LEVELS
Here's the equaliser from Mawson...
SLOVAKIA 1-1 ENGLAND
60: This has been a good response from Slovakia after conceding. They are playing on the front foot again and pushing England back.
58: Bero looks to jink his way into the box but Mawson is there to win the ball and then win a free-kick as he is bundled to the floor.
56: SHOT! Decent attempt from Bero from the edge of the D, flicking the ball up first time and then volleying a few yards wide.
54: There's more of an end-to-end feel about the game now as Slovakia come forward, then England break. Slovakia are looking less defensive now they have been pegged back.
52: Momentum with England now as Baker looks to slide across for Abraham to tap-in, but the cross is well blocked. Murphy then has a shot straight down the middle at Chovan.
GOAL! SLOVAKIA 1-1 ENGLAND (Mawson 50)
Finally England get a good delivery from a cross, and there's the reward - their first goal of the tournament.
It's half-time substitute Murphy who crosses from the right, over the defence and Mawson manages to scramble it in from close range.
SLOVAKIA 1-0 ENGLAND
49: SAVE! England's best effort of the match.
They work it forward well and Swift slides it into the box for Redmond, who checks inside and then fires at the near post, but Chovan saves well.
47: The game settles back into the pattern at the end of the first half as England control possession and Slovakia sit back. And the final ball is again wayward as it goes through for Chovan.
And it's England who get the game restarted...
There's a change at the break as Murphy comes on for Holgate. England presumably set to go with three at the back.
STUART PEARCE'S VERDICT
"We are short of a bit of creativity. We have worked the ball
into the last third on occasion but really struggled to find that last pass. If
it was me looking at changes I would bring on Will Hughes or Demarai Gray."
SLOVAKIA v ENGLAND PRICE BOOSTS
Nathan Redmond is a 13/2 Price Boost to bring England level at 1-1, while it's 5/2 that England fail to find a way to goal after the break. Both teams to score in the second half is 11/4, and it's 7/4 for another goal to be scored before the hour mark.

And that is half-time. England have had plenty of the ball but they are behind and facing probable elimination from the European U21 Championship unless they can turn this game around in the next 45 minutes.
45+1: SAVE! Ward-Prowse goes for goal with a curling free-kick from around 25 yards and Chovan has to punch over the bar.
45: Just one minute to be added on.
45: Plenty of England possession in the final third and the ball breaks for Baker in the box, but his shot is immediately blocked.
43: SAVE! Mihalik has a shot from distance that appeared to take a slight deflection and Pickford does well to parry it well clear of goal.
41: Chovan punches clear a long throw from Holgate and then catches a cross from Swift. Again the delivery was not the best.
39: Can England muster a response before half-time? They have stepped it up but are struggling to create clear chances, with Abraham not really in the game and Slovakia not looking that troubled.
37: England are starting to enjoy a bit more of the possession and Swift looks for the top corner with a shot from 20 yards, but the keeper watches it go wide.
WATCH: CHRIEN'S OPENER
Here's a look at the goal that has put Slovakia ahead...
34: Nice skill from Mihalik gets him away from a couple of challenges before he passes for Rusnak. He hits a low shot from 25 yards that's straight at Pickford.
32: Again England don't hit their mark with a cross as Chovan punches clear.
30: The noise level among the Slovakia fans has risen a notch. A win would put them in a very strong position to qualify from the group and they are playing with confidence. England, meanwhile, are not looking too threatening.
27: Ward-Prowse commits England's first foul of the match and earns himself a yellow card as he catches Bero with a sliding challenge.
25: CLOSE! England look for a quick response and that's not a bad effort from Baker as he checks in from the right and hits a left-footed shot that goes narrowly over the top corner.
