The expansion of the European Championship finals to a 24-team tournament has given real hope to a Slovenia squad who face Estonia in Tallinn on Monday, with midfielder Kevin Kampl seeing it as a great opportunity to reach the showpiece.

"I am delighted that there will be 24 teams in EURO 2016. That means a big advantage for some mid-level teams like Slovenia, it is a big opportunity to qualify," said the FC Salzburg man, who is hoping to return from the Baltic state with the three points.

"It is very important to start well, a good result in Estonia might be crucial. We know England and Switzerland are favourites in the group, but we will do our best not only to follow them but also to surprise them. However, our focus is now only on Estonia, I would really like to come back to Slovenia with a first three points."
