Slovakia squad for Ireland & Armenia

Published by at 4:23 pm under Uncategorized

GOALKEEPERS: Ján Mucha (Everton), Marián Kello (Hearts)

DEFENDERS: Peter Pekarík (VfL Wolfsburg), Martin Škrtel (FC Liverpool), Ľubomír Michalík (Carlisle United), Ján Ďurica (Lokomotiv Moskva), Tomáš Hubočan (Zenit Petrohrad), Marek Čech (West Bromwich Albion), Kornel Saláta (FK Rostov)

MIDFIELDERS: Karim Guédé, Igor Žofčák (Slovan Bratislava), Juraj Kucka (FC Genoa), Miroslav Karhan (Spartak Trnava), Marek Hamšík (SSC Napoli), Vladimír Weiss (Manchester City), Miroslav Stoch (Fenerbahce Istanbul), Róbert Jež (Polonia Warsaw)

ATTACKERS: Stanislav Šesták, Róbert Vittek (MKE Ankaragücü), Filip Hološko (Besiktas Istanbul), Filip Šebo (Slovan Bratislava), Erik Jendrišek (SC Freiburg)

Well, where are the talking points here?  Perhaps Vladimir Weiss has been too busy taking care of business at Slovan Bratislava to consider any surprise selections, but I think this is probably the most unsurprising announcement one could have expected.  Still, that’s fine, perhaps there is finally some continuity in his thought which is essential ahead of two absolutely crucial Euro 2012 qualifiers.

    Bit of a non issue this question as this squad almost picks it’s self, no ? Weiss has such limited talent pool to choose from and any surprise picks are not going to improve what he has at the top end moment . I see Sebo was picked ….why ?

    Agreed – but the odd ‘left-field’ selection in a Weiss squad isn’t unknown. Given the limited talent pool, who do you suggest instead of Sebo? I still rate Oravec – but only a sub for Trnava last w/e.

    Stoch is back, yay!
    Also, didn’t baby Weiss head to Russia?

    missed this game. Hamsik radiated menace according to the Guardian. Fired up for the repra or pissed off that Chelseas imaginary last minute bid fell thru, we wonder
