BORDEAUX: Slovakia coach Jan Kozak believes Wales were lucky to beat his team 2-1 in their Euro 2016 Group B opener on Saturday. Substitute Hal Robson-Kanu’s 81st-minute winner guaranteed the three points after Ondrej Duda’s strike had cancelled out Gareth Bale’s early goal. Wales had eight shots on target to two for their opponents but Slovakia had more possession (56 percent) and created more chances (13 to 10). “It was an open game and I think they had more luck,” Kozak told a news conference. “I think a draw would have been fairer.”
