The 59-year-old former Czechoslovakia international takes over from Stanislav Griga and Michal Hipp, who were sacked as joint coaches last month after winning just three of 12 matches in charge.

Kozak, who was previously in charge of Kosice, will immediately take up his new role on a contract that lasts until November 11, 2015, the Slovakia Football Association announced on its website following a meeting of the executive committee.

Slovakia are third in World Cup qualifying Group G on nine points, seven behind leaders Bosnia-Herzegovina and four adrift of second-placed Greece after six matches.

In September they face back-to-back matches against Bosnia-Herzegovina before completing their qualifying campaign with trips to Greece and Latvia.
