Andraž Šporar becomes only the 10th player in Slovenian national team history to reach double digits in national team goals
In the eyes of the Slovenian football public, he was a national team debtor for a long time, but now the thought he expressed in an interview a few years ago is coming true:“I want to score goals for Slovenia, I want to make Slovenians happy.” Andraž Šporar is now doing both: scoring goals for Slovenia and making Slovenians happy. On Thursday evening, they are plentiful. He may even have played his best game in the national crest jersey. He put two balls in the Northern Ireland net, shook the crossbar and was millimetres away from a hat-trick. It was also the night when Andraž Šporar made history for the Slovenian national team.
THE BEST SLOVENIAN SHOOTERS OF ALL TIME
36 – Zlatko Zahović
32 – Milivoje Novakovic
16 – Sašo Udovič, Primož Gliha, Josip Iličić
15 – Ermin Šiljak
13 – Milenko Aćimović
11 – Tim Matavž
10 – Boštjan Cesar, Andraž Šporar
Greek giant striker Panathinaikos became only the tenth Slovenian to score double-digit goals in the national crest. Andraž Šporar is currently at number 10, overtaking the legendary Boštjan Cesar, with whom he now shares ninth place on the all-time scorers list. Eighth-placed Tim Matavž has a one-goal advantage, while seventh-placed Milenko Aćimović is three goals clear. And with Slovenia’s next game against San Marino… No, Andraž Šporar has certainly not said the last word. We are confident that this is just the beginning. And that he will continue to make Slovenians happy.
