Slovenia: History Made!

19 nations of the 74 (total teams ever qualifying) have never won a single game in the WC (a quarter of all teams). There have been 12 teams (out of 74) in World Cup history to have never won or even tied a game. That's 17% of all nations that have ever made it to the WC. Make no mistake. This is a huge win for Slovenia, a nation of little more then 2 million (formally part of Yugoslavia till 1991).

The other teams in that 17% (no wins or ties) playing this year happen to be Greece and New Zealand.

So, THE game for the US turns out to be against Slovenia not Algeria as I expected in my previous post.
