Slovakia

Slovakia

Slovakia came through a difficult qualifying group to book their place at their first ever World Cup under this name and they will be a difficult side to beat no matter who they play. They do appear to be one of the weaker teams heading to South Africa from Europe but nevertheless they are still a well organised team who will make it as difficult as possible for anyone who plays them.

The Slovaks are Managed by Vladimir Weiss who seems to have got the team playing to the best of their ability and they will not be easy to beat in South Africa. There are a few household names in the Slovak squad including Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel who will need to be on top form if Slovakia are to have a chance of making it through the group stages, a fact that is highlighted by the 2010 World Cup Betting which shows Slovakia as outsiders.
