Žan Vipotnik, with his goal against Kazakhstan, is in contention for the most beautiful goal of the recent Euro 2024 qualifiers.
The Slovenian national team began their qualification campaign for Euro 2024 with what turned out to be a crucial and challenging match against Kazakhstan, the group's biggest surprise. Slovenia emerged victorious in this key match, largely thanks to newcomer Žan Vipotnik, who was in excellent form playing for Maribor at the time.
In the 78th minute of the match in Astana, Vipotnik scored the decisive goal, making the score 2:1. Following this match, Slovenia defeated San Marino. Despite the challenging matches in March, the team found its rhythm. Vipotnik ended the club season as the top scorer of the Slovenian league and successfully transferred to the French club Bordeaux.
His goal has now gained renewed attention as the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) searches for the most beautiful goal of the Euro 2024 qualifiers.
