Slovakia coach Vladimir Weiss has announced his confirmed squad for the 2010 World Cup. Weiss cut six players from his provisional 29-man squad.

Nantes goalkeeper Lubos Kamenar, Leeds United defender Lubomir Michalik and Zenit St. Petersburg's Tomas Hubocan were among the players that only just missed out on the final squad.

Weiss did include Liverpool's Martin Skrtel, Besiktas forward Martin Holosko and Robert Vittek of Lille, despite the trio's recent injury concerns.

"There are still some question marks," Weiss said to reporters. "In case of an injury anything can happen."

Slovakia will have to deal with Italy, Paraguay and New Zealand if they are to survive the group stage. They start the tournament with a match against the Kiwis on June 15.
