Slovakia Manager Wary of Scotland Threat with Leigh Griffiths

Slovakia managerJan Kozak says that he is concerned about the threat of Scotland in the latter stages of the World Cup 2018 qualification group, as the team appears to be better than ever due to the presence of a strong Celtic factor.

Scotland are back in the race for World Cup 2018 qualification after moving within a point behind Slovakia after the latest round of results. Slovakia appeared to be in a comfortable position heading into the last three matches, but a 2-1 loss against England in the latest qualifier led to the team dropping perilously close. Scotland were able to get an uninspiring 2-0 victory over strugglers Malta even at home.

Albert Rusnak Joins up with Slovakia Squad from Real Salt Lake

Real Salt Lake will be without Albert Rusnak next week, as the Slovakian has been called up for the World Cup qualifying games.

The Slovakian team will be up against Slovenia and England in back-to-back World Cup qualification matches. Victory in these games is extremely important for Slovakia, who sit second in the table with a one-point advantage over Slovenia after six matches. Jan Kozák’steam even has the possibility of catching with England, who are only two points ahead. As a result, Slovakia may need the help of a very best player on their books and Albert Rusnak is certainly one of those names.

Italy and Germany progressed as the Slovaks and Polish side crashed out of the group stage of the tournament. But Fico wants more answers. He sent a letter to the body, describing happenings as a “farce performed by players from countries advanced in football.”
