I really hope this is the case. Hoping that team slo will enter the final VNL pool.
They may not, but perhaps Slovenia will peak on target event (WCH) and not in VNL/ECH calibre of event. The thing is they're in very mediocre shape, but also have old roster (Vincic, Pajenk, Urnaut) with substantial absences (Cebulj, Stern, Kovacic), so it's hard to expect last year's VNL from them when they didn't have Olympics, so they played with starting lineup throughout the event.
The only real negative is Slovenia should do anything they can to be in front of Serbia in world ranking and they've already lost some points, it may be very important from Olympic qualies' perspective to be the first European team in a ranking besides France/Poland/Russia/Italy.
That being said, the main goal for Lebedew should be making some damage on September.
