The tension before Friday’s showdown with Denmark is growing by the hour, but there is no special pressure in the Slovenian ranks, but above all a huge desire and motivation, which was confirmed by Timi Max Elšnik to the journalists at Brdo pri Kranju. The Styrian midfielder has proved to be an indispensable member of the squad led by selector Matjaž Kek with his performances at club and national team level. Despite some minor problems in recent weeks, he should be ready for Kobenhavn, while proving once again how much wearing the national crest really means to him.
Timi Max Elšnik, eager to prove himself before leaving for Denmark, said.I believe that each of us, or all Slovenians, are eagerly awaiting these two matches. At the last meeting, the boys and I wanted to continue competing for the national team, but now we’re really here. The days drag on because we want to play as soon as possible. I can’t wait for the game.”
Timi Max Elšnik: “The sooner the better”
Captain of Olimpija Ljubljana added that he is ready to do everything to succeed.If the selector picks me for the game on Friday, it will be the same as before. Upside down, for the country, for the coat of arms! This will be the same for all the boys who get the chance to play.”
I would be happiest if Slovenia were to advance to the Euro 2024 would have been confirmed in Denmark – because we all would have been, wouldn’t we? “The sooner we conclude, the better. In Denmark, we can be unencumbered, without pressure. We have nothing to lose by not winning, but much to gain,” said Timi Max Elšnik, who was plagued by injury after the Belfast game but is currently no longer suffering from any serious problems.I’ve been feeling better and better over the last few days and I don’t expect any problems in the match against Denmark. You forget about it in games like this. You have to be carried by adrenaline, by desire, even if you are tired.”
