Slovakia were denied a semi-final spot in the European Championships when Italy beat Germany 1-0. They had hoped to qualify as the best second-placed side after finishing behind England in Group A.
In an open letter to UEFA chief Aleksander Ceferin he claimed his country were the victims of “unjust match fixing.”
“This was an orchestrated farce between two experienced footballing nations,” he said. “I am confident that this incident will be fully investigated by UEFA and that rules will be set in place in future tournaments that reward sporting effort and prohibit convenient results of this nature.”
At Euro 2004 Denmark and Sweden were accused of conspiring to secure a 2-2 draw – which saw both sides through and Italy eliminated.
