do or die game
I am ignorant and blinded as can be, but I believe they can.Can Slovakia show the same heart/mentality/spirit/conviction/lack of fear as Algeria/Switzerland/North Korea. If they can, then they have the chance, simple as that!
Well let's see it then. Benching Durica is step 1 IMO. Also, can Hamsik do something for this team? Right now he looks to be very overrated, at least do something like Donovan did today and bring your team back into the match!We´ll get 4 damn points and go through :stuckup:

he actually IS overrated on the position he plays in NT, that is btw different than in club. This one stupid mistake at the end didn´t made him worse player, just exposed his lack of defensive work.Well let's see it then. Benching Durica is step 1 IMO.

Looking forward to Euro 2012 and beyond, are there other players in the U20 or lower who can be groomed to fill these obvious holes?Slovakia use to play 4-4-1-1, with 1 DM, 1 playmaker with defensive duties (Hamsik), 2 wingers (Stoch, Weiss), lonely Vittek upfront, with Sestak/Holosko behind him as a withdrawn striker. Hamsik has limited offensive support from DM and usually small trafic upfront caused by our passive strikers.
If we could replace DM with quality deep-lying playmaker, who combines DM with playmaker and covers big area, we could give Hamsik the freedom he needs for supporting attack. At the same time, we need better strikers upfront, creating havoc in opponent´s zone. With no traffic upfront, Hamsik can´t make his nice run-ins into the disturbed defence.
Main reason why Hamsik looks so ineffective in NT is that he has defensive duties and makes his run-ins into well-organised defence.
