it will be tough. Israel will come out playing like madmen (or at least trying to). slovenia has been known to win huge games (or draw), but then draw to minnows!

Zahovic must play well, and i think that Slovenia has nothing to worry about.

Lately Nastja Čeh has been the key player of our team and I hope he will be as good as ever and that the early finishing of the Belgium league (and partying ) won't affect him too much.

ZZ is good, we all know that, but it depends on him if he wants to play good or not.

Well against Israel it will be something else than against Cyprus or malta. They are a quality teal, eventhough they don't allways perform to their potential. I sure hope they won't when we face them either ! Their results in these qualies aren't that convincing also, except for that great game they had against France in Palermo, and that's exactly what worries me. OK against Cyprus they drew and only just won, but there must have been a factor of underastimation inbetween there! They surely won't use the same kind of an attitude against us. So we will be up against a very tough team, and a very determined one as well. Neverthanless I'm optimistic and say we will do just fine, but first we must wait for a while and see how will our injured players recover!

SLOVENIJA


COME ON YOU GUNNERS!

I agree with what has been said. I think that if we are to win we must have a strong defence. The absence of Knavs has been noticeable in our last two games in which we gave away easy and stupid goals.

Zlatko Zahovic is our key player in this match, if he plays to the best of his abilities we should win with no troubles.

It would be wonderful to see Cimerotic back into the squad as he and Siljak would destroy the Israeli goal.

Also what is wrong with Acimovic???? I saw him playing for Tottenham only the week before yet he didnt play for our NT. Is he injured or has he retired from international soccer already????

So to sum up my post I will say that this is more than a winnable game for us, all we need to do is play properly.

He did not retire from international duties, he just didn't contact our coach on time to tell him if he's injured or not anymore for the Malta-Slo game and therefor wasn't selected. He should be there for the Israel game. Although you never know ...

Its great to hear that Knavs could be back in the squad. As I said before the biggest worry ahead of us in the game against Israel would be our defence. If Knavs is back almost all my worries would be gone for defeat in this match.

Thanks nina for the information on Acimovic. It is great to know that he hasnt retired. It would also be good to see him play against Israel in July.

It would indeed be great to see him play, but I'm afraid we don't have space at the moment :undecide:

Are you claiming you'll hear it down there sooner then we here? Razumeš slovensko?

Well one thing is clear, Ošlaj, who IMO did good against Malta, won't be joining the team as he got injured and had to operate his knee. He'll be out for the next 6 months.

Not saying I'll hear it first but maybe post it

I hear that Oslaj was playing very well before being stretchered off. His replacement in the match Snofl apparently found it hard to get into the game.

He again curled in a beauty only a week after the title celebration against Lokeren so no need to worry about that. Notice how he simply scoops it past Dabanovic and the frustration (at least on one side ) afterwards.

You're welcome, Nina. There's some more footage of his goals on the site. I'll post them later on.

Here are two freekicks home against Lokeren. No Dabanovic in the Lokeren goal, though.

ps: if it doesn't immediately show the right page, click "beeldmateriaal".

Hehe, Dutch IS a tough language idd.

Since there seems to be some interest around the subject here , I suggest to open a thread on Nastja's performances in Belgium (as well as some news on the other players ): Nastja-news, whaddaya say?

Slovenia is still rank 36 in the FIFA Rankings despite defeating Malta 1 - 3.

Over the last two months Slovenia has been stuck on 610 points even though they won Cyprus 4 - 1 and malta 1 - 3.

I don't know about the rest of you but I think that we (Slovenians) are getting screwed. :fero:

Here is the site of all rankings.
http://www.fifa.com/en/display/article,69201.html

Am I wrong or has FIFA made a mistake in the rankings. If anyone knows an e-mail address or something can they post it so I can complain. :fero:
