That we will also get a good result there.” just a few moments after qualifying for the European Championship against Germany, Jan Oblak was already looking. Completely in his own style. Despite the joy, he has already found a new challenge, a new goal.
In a statement to Šport TV, the captain of Slovenia added that the Slovenian coat of arms has meant a lot to him since he was little, and now he can be in this role to help Slovenia achieve excellent results. “I believe that it is not that we can achieve more than this. I feel satisfaction and pride that we managed to do what we did. I dreamed about this from a young age. I have already played many important matches in my career, including the final and everything alive, but to play in the European Championship is a big thing. I will always give everything for this crest.”
