NT friendlies: March 3rd NORWAY (h)

On January 28th 1998 we played with Italy friendly in Palermo (loss 0:3) we should now play with them at home.

Edit: italians will be playing Sweden in Cesena same Day. According Reuters, Argentina would be interested to replace italians.

You should include Juraj Kucka from Sparta in the team, he came back from long term injury in good form, he's better than Strba. With US and Argentina you're trying to take hits to your confidence earlier which is better IMO than getting smashed right before World Cup

Well, during whole qualification we sucked in friendlies but when it came to real matches we were pretty decent. I guess Weiss takes friendlies as matches where he want to test various strategiesand he really cares about the final result.

what position plays Kucka in Spartaīs midfield ?

Weissī going to face some pressure in next few months. All the playerīs agents and clubs shall be trying to obtrude their players into Weissīroster, we all know why. Plus veteran players on their final campaign crying in media they deserve it more. To be totally honest, I doubt that Weiss takes Kucka and leaves Kozak or Karhan at home, watching the World Cup on TV.

I alone wouldnīt be able to leave Karhan at home after watching him bursting into tears in Chorzow, for christs sake. Call me soft ass but this guy MUST be there even with one leg.

So, Slovakia will play against USA in Bratislava. Although I am by myself from Bratislava I donīt understand this - we all know in which state is Tehelné Pole and altought Pasienky are still ungoing reconstruction it isnīt something to be proud on either. That match should be played in Žilina or Košice, not here.

So no Argentina, but probably Norway or Canada. What a friendlies...

Americans wanted Bratislava. Somebody should them explain that some 30 minutes from downtown there is nice 20 thousand all-seater on Bratislavaīs periphery called ŠAM. Heck thatīs less they have to travel every day to their training facilities.

spokeswoman Perackova hasnīt seen the Argentine in the "list of official offers" yet but Guillermo Tofoni from AFA confirmed theyīve send it and now waiting on answer from our FA. This sounds quite contradictory. Whether sheīs clueless or has not been i touch with updated list but her answer wasnīt exactly the one competent FAīs spokeswoman should give, right ?

Itīs not likeīve got 150 offers, itīs maybe 5-6 countries we are talking about and she canīt remember their names ?

Peráčková is on her position only because of her...exterior, so no surprise there.

Chile is a very tough opponent, excellent and explosive side.

[QUOTE=Kajoo;7420695]what position plays Kucka in Spartaīs midfield ?

He was called up by Weiss for these friendlies. Can play either as a central midfielder or in a deeper more defensive role. Seems to be a player with a proper mentality on the field

Kucka was very solid today in Europa League against Cluj, 2 assists and assured defensively. He should be a starter for Slovakia ahead of Karhan or Strba IMO...
