Next month, the Slovenian national team will play in Copenhagen in a match unlike any other in its history. If Matjaz Kek ‘s squad wins, they will have already secured their place at Euro 2024! But the same goes for the opponent, so it’s clear: we’re in for one hell of a showdown.
Well, if it’s daylight in the morning, then the prospects for Slovenia’s visit to Denmark are good. The young footballers from Kidričevo provided a great send-off in a slightly different way. Aluminij and their U14 team took part in a strong international tournament in the past few days and… won it!
Interesting fact: Aluminij was the only non-Danish side in the Verona Cup 2023! The Verona Cup, a tournament with more than 20 years of tradition, is indeed held every year in Italy, but organised by an agency from Denmark. This time, the latter decided to invite mainly their clubs, which were no match for the very spirited guests from Slovenia.
Aluminij has already shone in the pre-competition, winning five times in five games, scoring 21 goals and conceding only one. The Štajerska won the quarter-final 4:0, the semi-final 3:0 and the final 3:0. Aluminij is challenged by a Danish club Kolding IF (playing in the second Danish league) and lost smoothly, the young Slovenians winning 3:0.
