Vladimir Weiss, a Slovakia international who is more than a little familiar with the Premier League, has highlighted a statistic that could have England and Wales fans worried ahead of Euro 2016.

Weiss, who was previously on the books at Manchester City as a youth player, is set to feature for Slovakia in France later this summer.

And ahead of group stage showdowns against England and Wales, the 26-year-old winger appeared full of confidence for his country's chances.

The midfielder's new-found optimism follows Slovakia's surprise 3-1 victory over reigning world champions Germany.

Die Mannschaft were put to the sword in a 3-1 friendly defeat and, while the result counts for little in the long-run, it did complete a remarkable treble of victories for Slovakia.

Taking to Twitter, Weiss was the first to note the impressive feat that has seen Slovakia beat each of the last three World Cup winners.

At the 2010 incarnation of the tournament, defending champions Italy were put to the sword in a 3-2 victory that saw Slovakia progress to the knockout phase of the competition at the expense of the Azzurri.

Meanwhile, in qualifying for Euro 2016, Slovakia pulled off a remarkable shock in beating 2010 winners Spain, 2-1, in Zilina with Weiss grabbing an assist for the hosts.

And with this latest 3-1 win over Germany – another game in which Weiss assisted with a goal - completing the hat-trick, England and Wales fans alike may be more than a little worried about the prospect of playing a team that evidently has no fear when it comes to facing some of Europe's biggest and best footballing nations.

Weiss managed just one Premier League appearance for Manchester City during his time at the Etihad and, following spells in Italy and Greece, can now be found playing his football in Qatar for Al-Gharafa.

Star in a Slovakia win over either Wales or England at Euro 2016, however, and we may just see him in the Premier League again very soon.
