Led by Kek, Slovenia’s youthful squad, featuring talents like Benjamin Sesko, signifies a promising future for Slovenian football. Sesko’s development, amid interest from top European clubs, underscores Slovenia’s prospects on the international stage.

Overall, Slovenia’s Euro 2024 journey, despite its challenges, sets a hopeful tone for their future in global football.
