Slovenia on the road to Northern Ireland: Selector Matjaž Kek has decided that his squad will not train at Windsor Park before the match
When Matjaž Kek and Slovenia, last time they visited Belfast, Windsor Park was still a “knocked down” stadium. But the building, which was not a source of pride for anyone, has undergone a complete renovation. Belfast ‘s National Stadium was completely renovated in 2015 and now seats 18,500 spectators. They can be very proud of it today, whether they will be in the qualifying for the Euro 2024 home fans will go home happy, but of course we will have to see. In Slovenia, we hope and believe that this will not be the case, but Slovenian selector Matjaž Kek has decided to make an interesting move ahead of the eighth match on the way to the tournament in Germany.
Slovenia will play in Northern Ireland without an official training session on the Windsor Park pitch. Matjaž Kek decided that the Slovenian national team will have their official training on home soil, and the last training session before the match started at 11.30 at the National Football Centre in Brdo pri Kranju. After the training, Slovenia will travel to the Island, where – as mentioned – they will not train. Matjaž Kek’s only obligation before the match against Northern Ireland will be the official press conference in the evening.
