These two teams head to Ellis Park for their second match at the 2010 World Cup, both teams will be looking to pick up the three points on offer that will help them move towards the last 16. The USA will be the slight favourites for this one but Slovenia will also fancy their chances after a strong qualifying performance, they will be looking to carry that form into the World Cup and against the USA. England are the big names in Group C meaning that the second qualifying spot could be on offer for the winner of this match, Slovenia will play England in their last match and will be hoping to avoid having to win that match to qualify.

The USA qualified with ease for the 2010 World Cup as they do for most major tournaments and have improved dramatically over the past decade. They have risen to the top 20 in the World Rankings and have shown they can mix it with all the big teams on their day.

Match Day Squads and Key Players

The USA are building a strong squad for an attack on the 2010 World Cup and they will be looking towards their experienced names to form the bulk of their match day squad. The Americans will need Landon Donovan and Clint Dempsey fit and on form and playing well as they have shown during the Premier League season. In 2002, the USA reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup and they will be looking to achieve something similar with the squad they have assembled in 2010.

Slovenia do not have the strongest squad on paper but their players are starting to become more experienced playing across Europe, Martin Skrtel of Liverpool is perhaps thee main man for them. He will need to be the organiser in defence if they are to have any chance of success against the Americans who will be looking to pile on the pressure.
