Milivoje Novakovic: Put Slovenia on their way with early opener

A goal in each half helped Slovenia earn an impressive 2-0 friendly win over Turkey in Germany on Friday night.

Playing on the neutral ground of Bielefeld's Schucoarena, Slovenia's goals came from Milivoje Novakovic and substitute Tim Matavz.

It means Turkey have won just two of their last 11 internationals while Slovenia will take heart from the win ahead of their World Cup qualifying clash in Iceland next week.

They are bottom of their group as things stand but it was not obvious tonight as Novakovic gave them an 11th-minute lead.

PSV Eindhoven striker Matavz then made things safe with a second just eight minutes after coming on as a 58th-minute substitute.
