Even though the match is of a friendly nature and won’t officially go down in the history books, it offers a splendid opportunity for numerous footballers who have never played on the international stage. Tonight in San Antonio, where the friendly match between the USA and Slovenia will kick off at 9:00 PM, a plethora of Slovenians will have an ideal chance to impress the coach Matjaž Kek. And all of this in a year of a major competition! Demonstrating that everything is possible in football and dreams can come true overnight is also Timi Max Elšnik.
The captain of Olimpija came into the national team through the side door, then got an opportunity, capitalized on it, and became one of the key players in Kek’s squad. Therefore, Timi Max Elšnik conveys to all his teammates in the Slovenian B national team: make the most of what is being offered to you!
“The match will be an opportunity for us to gain new valuable experiences with our teammates. Not long ago, I was also in such a position, just like most of our guys will be tomorrow, and I know how they feel right now. This is one of those steps in the right direction,” said Timi Max Elšnik for the NZS website.
You can watch the friendly encounter at the Toyota Field, with a capacity of 8000 spectators, which will – as mentioned – kick off at 9:00 PM, in a live broadcast on Sportklub.
