Slovenija, The teeny-tiny one? We'll see!

In a Saturday slow-news puff piece, on the first page of the NYT Sports coverage, Slovenija made the big time.  True, the next day, the country would disappear from the coverage as Team USA's 3-1 victory over Australia, in their last warm-up match before the Saturday, June 12th first game against England, was plastered all over the place.
...but... for one short day, it was great to see Slovenija mentioned.  Sunday's paper had the Slovenian goalkeeper Samir Handanovic profiled as one of the Young Guns of this year's World Cup.  Sunday, June the 13th marks the team's first game in its group, Group C.  They'll be playing Algeria, the other team in the group predicted to not make the next round.

Things should get interesting....
