Slovak Pride At Stake
Slovakia qualified for their first World Cup 20 years after becoming an independent nation. But somebody needs to tell them to get their finger out because it could be another 20 years before they qualify again.
After abject performances against New Zealand and Paraguay, they’re in danger of letting this one pass them by. Chances like this may not come up that often for a side like Slovakia so they need to play with a bit more pride.
They could have been in the box seat against the Italians if it wasn’t for their pessimism. If they don’t have a go in their final game, few will shed a tear when they’re dumped out.
