what kind of result do you expect ?

I hope Weiss plays offensive 4-4-2 like vs Costa Rica, we need to create some offence upfront.

Venue: Royal Bafokeng Stadium
Capacity: 44530



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Bafokeng_Stadium

The Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace is an football, rugby and athletics stadium in Phokeng near Rustenburg, South Africa. It was built and is managed by the Royal Bafokeng Nation[1]. It is used as the home stadium for Premier Soccer League club Platinum Stars. The Leopards host large attendance matches during the Currie Cup at the stadium, instead of their usual home ground, Olen Park.

The capacity of the stadium was increased from 38,000 to 44,530 to be able to host five first round matches and one second round match at the 2010 FIFA World Cup[2]. The Royal Bafokeng Stadium plays host to the round one Group C match between England and the United States on 12 June, 2010.

For the 2010 tournament, the main west stand was upgraded and enlarged and given a new cantilever roof. Other improvements include the installation of new electronic scoreboards, new seats, and the upgrading of the floodlights and public address system.

The stadium upgrade was completed in March 2009 for hosting 4 matches of the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup.

I will tip this as a 2-0 win for Slovakia. A win of any kind against New Zealand would put Slovakia in a good position after today's draw with Italy and Paraguay. Neither looked outstanding.

Germany has shown to be the clear class of the teams who have played so far.

If they don't underestimate their opponents too much, Slovakia should win 0-2 or 0-3 comfortably!

Welcome to our history.

Anyway, I am optimistic, barely. Shame that Vittek isn't what he used to be up-front, that would make us 100x better.

A lot of pressure on Hamsik and Skrtel tomorrow, let's hope they stand strong.

Draw between ITA-PAR basically means that we have to win both games vs NZ and PAR. 6 pts is key to 1/16, not 4 and better score.

First round of the Group phase was way too carefull. If Slovakia wants to think about last 16 Weiss has no other option then to play attacking football.

I'm assuming Weiss will start like this...

Quote:
Mucha

Pekarik - Skrtel - Durica - Cech

Strba

Stoch - Hamsik - Weiss

Sestak - Vittek
Good luck to Slovakia later today, I hope you get the 3 points and give yourself a chance for progress to second round!

I tip this as a bore 0-0.

Somewhere near the end of time
The noise will pass and the dust will settle

we“ll do our best I guess

btw this line-up is way too offensive. Weiss need some defensive cover because the boy can“t defend, Stoch too but to lesser extent. pLaying regular football in Netherlands helped him a bit to improve his defending but it“s still far from perfect.

One striker down, one midfielder up (Kucka ?)

I dont understand this thinking you have a one goal lead and you give up on scoring goals. Argentina did the same thing and it should have cost them as well. I know Slovakia was pushing and had a great chance but the last 15 min it looked like they were happy with a 1-0 win. The problem is its only one goal and anything can happen and it did. Its too bad cause you guys were way better.

People that should be in Bardovci before they come back to xtratime
1. Parni Valjak
2. Mihajlovic
3. Ero
4. HajdukSplit
5. Benny
6. lili

MACEDONIA FOR THE MACEDONIANS!!!

All in all I think Slovakia played a fantastic 2nd 45 minutes. The lapse in allowing the equalizer was obvious. But all in all, a much better performance in the second half. This group will not be easy, by any stretch, but we have seen that no side is playing over their heads yet. Sunday's match is crucial if Slovakia want to advance.

I hope I'm wrong in saying you've just blown your chances of progress.

Could have... It all depends on the next matches. If Slovakia can somehow take 3 points from Paraguay and New Zealand can somehow find a way to draw or even defeat Italy, it is a different matter.

A lot of "ifs" there.

the good news is that is they beat either Paraguay OR Italy they're in, and the bad news is that they have to beat either Paraguay or Italy

no. After PAR drew Italy yesterday, our only chance was to win the PAR game. Todays fail did change nothing on this. Our win vs PAR = progress. Any different result and we are out.
