Slovenia v Iceland Football Match – 22.03.2013 – UEFA World Cup Qualification Match Preview, Prediction, Squad Info
Slovenia v Iceland football match will be in 22.03.2013 at Ljubliana, Slovenia for UEFA World Cup Qualification Match. Slovenia got 1 win and 3 loses in their last 4 matches at UEFA World Cup Qualification matches. They have lost against Albania, Norway and, Switzerland. their lose against Norway and Switzerland were expected and Albania is playing good in their home matches. They got their only win against Cyprus. I believe it’s hard for them to qualify from group stages but they still have chance. Samir Handanovic from Inter Milan, Bostjan Cesar from Chievo, Bojan Jokic from Chievo, Rene Krhin from Bologna, Walter Birsa from Torino, Milivoje Novakovic from Omiya has been called up for Slovenia squad. I believe we will watch this players against Iceland.
I expect much from Iceland National Football Team in 2014 World Cup Qualifies. I believe they never had a good squad like that for years. They are playing well football and they got good results in group stages. I don’t expect them to qualify from group but I expect them good football in matches. They have beaten Norway in home and Albania at away. They have lost against Cyprus and Switzerland. I was expecting their lose against Switzerland but I just tought that they can get 1 point against Cyprus at the least.Iceland has played 2 matches against Slovenia in the past and they have lost both matches. Birkir Bjarnason from Pescara, Gilfu Tor Sigurdsson from Tottenham, Eidur Gudjohnssen from Club Brugge, Kolbeinn Sigborsson from PSV has been called up for Iceland squad. However Gretar Steinsson, Ingridi Sigurdsson, Rurik Gislason hasn’t been called up for Iceland squad. Especially absence of Steinsson and Sigurdsson will affect Iceland’s defensive performance in the match.
Match Prediction: Slovenia Wins
