Simon Kjaer, Christian Eriksen and Rasmus Hojlund – three top players and a trio that will not threaten Slovenia on the road to the Euro 2024. But Slovenian selector Matjaž Kek warns that even though Denmark will be extremely weakened on Friday in Copenhagen, it will still be very, very dangerous.
“If anyone thinks that Slovenia is just Šeško and Oblak, they are gravely mistaken. The reverse is also true, and it is not just Hojlund and Eriksen who represent Denmark. It is very telling that the Danish selector can call up players from Napoli and Trabzonspor instead of them, thus giving a chance to players who are breaking through from big European clubs,” said Matjaž Kek. The Maribor man added emphatically.The energy of the Parken Stadium will be the real test for us. The stakes are very high, we will have to enjoy and provoke ourselves to give our all or a little more at any given moment. In such cases, Slovenia can be very dangerous.”
Matjaž Kek: “We have some problems”
Matjaž Kek added that Slovenia is not completely without problems, although fortunately, at least for now, no one has been dropped for the northern European showdown. “We have some injury problems and the next two training sessions will reveal who will be able to play in the Danish capital and who won’t. We will also have to think about the fact that the first match is on Friday and the second on Monday,” warned Matjaž Kek, who will lead the 49. a match in his second term on the Slovenian bench. This will equalise the number of matches from his first term.
“The sold-out Parken Stadium, considered an iconic European stadium, awaits. Our ambition is to do as much as possible and to show what we can do at any given moment. At the moment, our focus is on Denmark,“, at Brdo pri Kranju, where the national team also visited NZS President Radenko Mijatović, added Matjaž Kek.
