FIFA World Cup 2010: Slovenia 23 Man Squad

Slovenia have named their 23 man squad to travel to South Africa for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Coach Matjaz Kek named a stable side largely consisting of those players he called upon to qualify for the World’s biggest tournament, with few surprises.

Slovenia qualified via a playoff in which they knocked out the strong Russian side, and may consider that there is an outside chance to progress to the knockout stage in Group C which features Algeria, the USA and England, though they are the least fancied side to do so.
