With the Qlamqtar 2022 world cup only about 14 periods away (depending on your own set of menstrual circumstances), I’m going to be answering all the burning questions leading up to the tournament. Today, I take a look at Slovenia, gunning for their second world cup qualification since gaining independence in 1991.

FIFA Ranking: 66
At the 2010 World Cup, Slovenia were the only team without a nickname or mascot, and to this day that remains the case. And although there have been publicly-run competitions and other media efforts to attempt to give them one, these have all proven to be unsuccessful. That being said, this hasn’t affected the passion Slovenians feel for their beloved Whatevers one bit, and if you walk down any street in Ljubljana, you can expect to hear the locals having a heated discussion about the team they lovingly refer to as Big And Quite Bad Football Men Wearing Slovenia Clothes.
One to watch: Slovenian National Football Team’s mascot, “Soccer Man Happy Guy Friend”
