Slovenia World Cup History:

Number of Previous World Cup Appearances: 1

Last Appearance: 2002

Best Finish: Group Stage

All-Time World Cup Record: 0-3-0

Odds:

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com, Slovenia has been given 500/1 odds to win the World Cup. Spain is the favorite coming in with odds of 4/1.

2010 World Cup Qualifying:

After failing to qualify through group play, where it landed second of six teams in its group, Slovenia managed to get a spot in the World Cup by defeating Russia on away goals after a 2-2 aggregate tie. In group play, Slovenia went 6-2-2, falling behind in the standings to only Slovakia. Slovenia still had the best goal differential in the group at +14.

Betting Analysis:

Slovenia joins Algeria, USA, and England in Group C of the World Cup. Algeria actually has been given worse odds to win, so if Slovenia can win that game and pull off a tie or upset against USA or England, it could possibly reach the round of 16, where anything can happen. Slovenia has won seven of its last 10 games, with one of the losses a 2-1 decision to England. With 500/1 odds, Slovenia could provide some excitement, but a run all the way to the championship is highly unlikely.
