He was in the final of the Champions League, he was Spanish champion. And now it’s at Euro 2024. Jan Oblak has further built on a career that has taken him further than he could have imagined. But the boy from Škofja Loka grew up to be a man who became a hero and a legend. But he hasn’t forgotten where he came from… Jan Oblak is a star, but he is also a human being. A person with a heart that comes first.
Slovenia’ s captain proved it after the end of the match against Kazakhstan, where Kek’s squad won their first appearance in a major competition in 14 long, long years. Jan Oblak has done his part, and you would expect him to put the gloves he has been defending with in a safe place. Somewhere in a display case. So that he can always remember what he has achieved at national team level.
But no, Jan Oblak didn’t keep the gloves to himself. At the end of the match, which Slovenia won 2-1 and secured their place in Germany, the Slovenian captain rushed to the C-Tribune and presented the gloves to one of the visitors. Not to anyone. The gloves were placed in the hands of a young fan who will never forget this day. Slovenia qualifies for Euro 2024. He also went home wearing the gloves of one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time.
A deep tribute, Captain!
