BRATISLAVA, Slovakia (AP) — Slovakia coach Francesco Calzona included 18-year-old Feyenoord forward Leo Sauer in his squad for the European Championship on Friday, along with 37-year-old right back Peter Pekarik.

Sauer has just played in just one international so far but impressed on the wing for Feyenoord this season.

Slovakia is entering its first major tournament since star playmaker Marek Hamšík retired last year and Calzona said his team will have to rely on the collective rather than individuals.

“We know well what our limits are,” said the Italian, who also coached Napoli alongside the Slovak national team from February until the end of the season.

He included Napoli’s hardworking midfielder Stanislav Lobotka in the team, who could play alongside another 37-year-old veteran, Juraj Kucka.

Newcastle’s Martin Dúbravka is expected to be the No. 1 goalkeeper, while the defense is anchored by captain Milan Škriniar of Paris Saint-Germain.
