Roberto Martinez remains confident ahead of the Euro 2024 knockout stage but admitted to feeling wary of Slovenia ahead of their last-16 meeting.

The Selecao sealed top spot in Group F with a game to spare after wins over Czechia and Turkiye.

However, they were stunned in their final group outing as they were beaten 2-0 by surprise-package Georgia on Wednesday.

Martinez noted the improvements Portugal have worked on since their disappointing end to the group stage, with his mind on the tough test ahead.

“I can say that after three games, the team is ready,” Martinez said. “A new tournament starts now, it’s in or out.

“It’s not easy to play at Euro, but as a team we are prepared to face this knockout phase.

“Portugal is fresh, we’re ready, and I would like to answer questions on 15 July [after the final].
