Slovenia failed to qualify for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil after finishing a disappointing third behind Switzerland and Iceland. Having qualified for the 2010 Finals in South Africa, and gaining an impressive 4 points from a relatively tough group containing England, USA and Algeria, many would have expected Slovenia to develop as an International football team.

Slovenia betting information
Slovenia qualified for the World Cup by beating Russia in a World Cup playoff, and if Russia has made it to the World Cup then they would be a much shorter price than Slovenia are so perhaps that makes Slovenia one of the value bets of the tournament?
The main problem for Slovenia is the group they have been drawn in. Not only will they face England, who are one of the World Cup favourites, but they also play USA who are a very good side in their own right and a team who should perform very well at South Africa 2010. Group C also contains African side Algeria.
Slovenia will not be embarrassed at the World Cup but qualification is probably a bit of a dream for them and although they are likely to beat Algeria, that could be the only points they get in the group.
