Germany slumps to 3-1 home defeat against Slovakia

AUGSBURG, Germany (AP) Germany's European Championship preparations had a setback Sunday in a 3-1 thunderstorm-interrupted defeat to Slovakia.

Goals at the end of the half from Marek Hamsik and Michal Duris gave Slovakia a 2-1 lead at the interval in the Euro 2016 warmup before the storm peppered the pitch with large hailstones and heavy rain.

Play resumed almost 40 minutes later on the water-sodden pitch.
