For the first time, the last time, and never again? The thought that the starting lineup of the Slovenian national team will never be the same as in San Antonio, Texas, where the friendly matches between the United States and the team led by coach Matjaž Kek will kick off at 9:00 PM. Slovenia will play its first match in 2024, a year that also includes participation in the European Championship. However, the B-national team will actually be in action on this visit, playing with players who mostly compete in the Prva Liga Telemach.
In the starting lineup, there are seven players from the Slovenian league, including the captain – the role assigned to Timi Max Elšnik, who, along with Žan Karničnik, is also the most experienced member of the B-national team. In goal will be Igor Vekić, who plays in Denmark, in defense the aforementioned Karničnik, club teammates Žan Zaletel and Srđan Kuzmić, and David Zec. In the midfield, Elšnik will be assisted by Adrian Zeljković, who excels in Slovakia, Jan Repas, and Tamar Svetlin, while for goals, Danijel Šturm and Nejc Gradišar will be responsible.
The match between the USA and Slovenia will start at 9:00 PM, and you can watch the live broadcast on the Sportklub TV station.
