Forgotten Town man Amir Karic and Slovenia complete their World Cup fixtures today when they meet Paraguay in Seogwipo (KO 12.30pm). The Slovenians have had a a miserable time in the Far East with star man Zlatko Zahovic sent home and manager Srecko Katanec vowing to resign after the finals.
The manager has already named his team for today's game: Dabanovic, Galic, Bulajic, Milinovic, Karic, Pavlin, Ceh, Novak, Acimovic, Cimirotic and Osterc.
Katanec was philosphical regarding his side's failure to qualify for the second phase: "Our players gave their best at the first two matches, some even more than I have ever expected.
"Unfortunately, this was only enough for two defeats. However, we played both matches in the right way, the final result could also be different.
"The play will be the same in the third match against Paraguay. The atmosphere in the squad is good, which you will see in the match."
