DRAW IN LJUBLJANA: OPPONENTS SLOVENIA AND ITALY

 Our futsal team's path to Slovenia was not easy. In the group with current European champion - Spain, then Slovenia and Moldova, Perić and teammates achieved two wins - they were convincing against Poland (4:0), then also against Moldova (7:3). They managed to win the Czechs in the first leg play-off match in Chomutov (4:3), and then to confirm their quality in the second leg match. Being more experienced with the success achieved at the last European Championship in Belgrade, Perić, Kocić, Simić, Rajčević and their teammates will certainly send us some good news from Slovenia.
