Slovakia have named Stefan Tarkovic as their caretaker head coach ahead of next month's Euro 2020 play-off final against Northern Ireland.

Pavel Hapal was sacked despite leading his country past the Republic of Ireland in the semi-finals, leaving a short time-frame to line up a replacement in time for the winner-takes-all clash at Windsor Park on 12 November.

Tarkovic was previously part of the coaching team under Jan Kozak, who led Slovakia to Euro 2016 in France. The former Zilina boss briefly stood in as caretaker when Kozak left his post in 2018.

The 47-year-old, who will be assisted by Marek Mintal and Samuel Slovak, will also take charge of Nations League encounters against Scotland and the Czech Republic before a longer-term decision is made on his future.
