We had hoped and believed otherwise, but the opposition we faced in Copenhagen was – hand on heart – too strong. Denmark proved why it is what it is – let’s not forget that at the last European Championships, it was only defeated in the semi-final against England after extra time… But what would we regret. Slovenia has another final ball in its hands, and Monday night’s opponent will be much more to Kek’ s liking.
Kazakhstan is also to be respected, and has probably never achieved better results in its history. He is a dangerous competitor who has proven that he can beat anyone. On Slovenia’s side, a draw in its last match is enough to qualify for Euro 2024. It is also not insignificant that it has been a long time since Slovenia last lost in Stožice.
It has been exactly 536 days since the last defeat, or just under a year and a half. Sweden was the last country to win a Nations League match at Slovenia’s biggest stadium, winning 2-0. After that, Slovenia played seven matches in Stožice, won five and drew only twice.
Norway, Montenegro, San Marino, Northern Ireland and Finland had to lay down their arms in Stožice, while Serbia and Denmark remained undefeated. In this series, the Slovenian net was hit six times, while the home team scored 15 goals.
Let’s add that this will be Kazakhstan’s first ever visit to the land on the sunny side of the Alps, and the only match between the two rivals for the Euro 2024 so far was in Astana. At the start of the Euro qualifiers in Germany, Slovenia won 2-1 after a turnaround.
