Slovakia hosts Czech Republic in vital football match

Anytime the Slovaks meet the Czechs in a sporting event, there is sure to be high drama. In football they have only met once that being two years ago in a friendly in Prague that ended in a 1-1 tie. They will face off again in a much more important match on May 21, at 6 p.m., at the 25,000 seat Slovan football stadium in Bratislava. The game is part of the qualification round for World Cup '98 to be held in France. Each country plays the other teams in their pool in both home and away matches. The top two teams will most likely advance to the World Cup.
Slovak players to watch are: striker Peter Dubovský (plays for 1st division club Real Oviedo in Spain), who has explosive offensive potential, mid-fielder Ľubomir Moravčik (plays for 1st division club Bastia in France), who hustles after every ball, goal keeper Alexander Vencel (plays for 1st division club Strasbourg in France), who at times makes spectacular saves and, defender Dušan Tittel (plays for 1st division club Slovan, Bratislava), who provides solid defense.
