Slovenia 1-0 Slovakia: Substitute Rok Kronaveter scores winner with first touch to seal well-earned victory
Slovenia's Rok Kronaveter scored his first international goal with his first touch of the ball after coming on as a substitute to earn his side a win over Slovakia in a scrappy World Cup Group F qualifier on Saturday.
The 29-year-old midfielder, who replaced Jasmin Kurtic in the 72nd minute, took a Josip Ilicic pass in his stride and side-footed home a sublime shot from the edge of the penalty area two minutes later.
The result left Slovenia on four points from two games after their opening 2-2 draw in Lithuania while the Slovakians, who were beaten by England 1-0 at home, have none.
