Marek Hamsik scored one goal and set up another to help Slovakia beat Russia 2-1 at the European Championship.

Hamsik's defense-splitting pass led to Vladimir Weiss' first goal. He then powered in Slovakia's second at the Stade Pierre Mauroy.

Russia provided little threat until Denis Glushakov headed in a late goal in the 80th.

But Slovakia held on for its first European Championship victory after losing to Wales on Saturday. Russia drew its first game with England in Group B.

Russia will now almost certainly need to beat Wales on Monday if they are to stand any chance of progress, while Slovakia know victory over England will see them through.
