Slovenia 4-1 Qatar: Hosts Continue Hot Streak

Slovenia have shown their class once again...

The team that boasts no individual stars, but rather a collective brilliance, Slovenia, overcame Qatar tonight in a match that saw them continue their great run of form after knocking Russia out of the running for a World Cup spot all those months ago.

Cologne striker Milivoje Novakovic gave his side the initiative after he struck on the 15 minute mark, bringing the game to life.

Bostjan Cesar and then Andraz Kirm then got themselves on the score sheet midway through the half, making it look like the encounter was all but over.

However, Brazilian-born Fabio Montezine gave Qatar a lifeline, scoring five minutes before the break.

Keen to keep their opponents down, Slovenia came back out strong, and were further rewarded for their persistence when Bojan Jokic scored on 67 minutes to put a bow on the whole affair.
