Slovenia fight back to draw with Slovakia in World Cup qualifier

 

Slovenia salvaged a 1-1 draw with Slovakia thanks to a Peter Stojanovic goal just before the break in a World Cup qualifier on Wednesday in which neither side created many chances.

Slovakia struck in the 32nd minute when Vladimir Weiss swung in a cross from the flank and Robert Bozenik headed past Slovenian goalkeeper Jan Oblak.

The home side equalised 10 minutes later following a period of sustained pressure when Peter Stojanovic controlled Josip Ilicic’s perfectly-weighted pass inside the penalty area and drove a shot into the goal.

The visitors hit the woodwork twice but other than that neither side generated many attacking opportunities in the Group H match.
