Matjaž Kek reveals list of players for Finland and Northern Ireland: Slovenian selector with expected strengths
Slovenian national team will play the following two matches in October in the qualification for the Euro 2024. On Monday, Selector Matjaž Kek announced the list of players he will be counting on to take on Finland (Ljubljana, 14 October) and Northern Ireland (Belfast, 17 October). Perhaps the most striking is the fact that Miha Zajc, who is still struggling with the problems he has been facing since the summer, was left without an invitation. Also absent is Aljoša Matko, a hot Celje player who was subsequently called up to the national team in September.
Defenders David Brekalo and Vanja Drkušić are questionable for the matches, and selector Matjaž Kek will decide on them and any subsequent call-ups shortly.
“We are in the middle of the season and there is always a problem. With one week to go before the Assembly, we will follow up those who are having difficulties. This list has verified names, but there are also names waiting to be called. But I am looking forward to the challenge, it is a great privilege to be able to reflect on our quality and to absorb the positive energy from the last matches in Ljubljana,“, Matjaž Kek said at Brdo pri Kranju, adding about the problems of David Brekalo and Vanja Drkušić: “I heard from David after the game on Sunday, we will wait for the MRI result. Vanja has been in trouble for a while, but he should be in the line-up for the next one.”
