In a week’s time, the 19th U17 World Championship will start in Indonesia, where the Slovenians tried to qualify but unfortunately lost out in the pre-season at this year’s Euro in Hungary despite playing well. The Cadet World Cup will feature Indonesia, Iran, Japan, South Korea, Uzbekistan, Burkina Faso, Mali, Morocco, Senegal, Canada, Mexico, Panama, USA, Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Venezuela, New Caledonia, New Zealand, England, France, Germany, Poland and Spain. However, despite the fact that there will be no Slovenian players in Indonesia, the tournament will pass with Slovenian participation.
Three Slovenian referees will soon travel to Indonesia, with the first league referee in charge Rade Obrenović. The latter will be assisted at the World Championships by his assistants Jure Praprotnik and Grega Kordež.
“The Slovenians will be based in Jakarta and will be accompanied by 4 refereeing teams from Europe (UEFA), 4 from the South American Football Federation (CONMEBOL), and 3 each from the Asian Football Federation (ACF), the Confederation of North, Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF) and the Confederation of African Football (CAF),” said the Association of Football Referees of Slovenia (ZNSS).
