Slovenia failed to score for the third successive friendly in a row against South American opposition as they fell to a 1-0 loss to Colombia. With a young team fielded by Srečko Katanec – with an entirely new XI from the one which started against England on Saturday – the hosts started slowly in Ljubljanas allowing James Rodríguez a couple of chances.
Their first-half advantage finally paid dividends in the 43rd minute when Adrián Ramos took advantage following a quickly taken free-kick. The Slovenian youngsters were more competitive in second half with Nejc Pečnik and Damjan Bohar both having good chances but neither could find an equaliser.
