World Cup 2010: Slovenia Squad - No Surprises In Matjaz Kek's Final 23-Man Roster

Kek has announced his final squad for the World Cup...
Slovenia coach Matjaz Kek has trimmed his World Cup squad to 23 on Tuesday by dropping three more players from his provisional roster.

Jan Koprivec, Aleksandar Rajcevic, Dare Vrsic and Miran Burgic were already cut from the original 30-man squad and now Mirnes Sisic, Darian Matic and Dejan Kelhar have also been told that they will miss out on this summer's tournament.

Young attacker Tim Matavz is the biggest surprise in the final squad. The Groningen attacker has yet to make his first international appearance for Slovenia's senior side.

The Slovenians are grouped with England, United States and Algeria in the first round of the World Cup. They start the tournament with a match against Algeria on June 13.
