By qualifying for the 2024 European Championship, the Slovenian national football team has created a new euphoria among fans, comparable to those experienced during breakthroughs to major competitions in the past. The representatives rejoiced in the company of fans already after the match, and the celebration continues at 4 p.m. on Congress Square.
»We are happy, happy and proud. I think it’s deserved. Thank you Slovenia for this incredible positive energy in recent months. It paid off for this generation that was almost labeled as ‘losers’. They restored faith in Slovenian football,” said the selector after the victory Matjaž Kek.
In the Slovenian camp, they say that they fully deserved to reach Germany, adding that they are going to the European Championship to compete. One of those who will defend and encourage such an attitude is the selector Kek.
In his first term, he led Slovenia to the World Cup in 2010, and his second term began in 2018 and experienced ups and downs in it. Despite Keko being out of contract at the end of the year, it’s not even a question of who will lead the national team in its fourth major competition in June (and July?) next year.
