The ex-goalkeeper of Slovenia Mladen Dabanovic, protecting the gate of this command in butt matches of Euro 2000 against Ukraine national team shared his opinion about the new meeting of old rivals

But the fact that Slovenia is under pressure, it’s not a tragedy. She is to blame – fans accustomed to good results.
The advantage of the team Slovenia at militancy! Plus we have in the team many players that can decide the fate of the confrontation literally alone”, – quotes the ex-goalkeeper of the national team of Slovenia newspaper Team.
