[SLOVENIA-USA] The USA meets Slovenia for the first time since their 2-2 tie at the 2010 World Cup when they face off Tuesday at Stozice Stadium in Ljubljana (TV: ESPN2, ESPN3 and Galavision, noon ET).

Slovenia failed to qualify for Euro 2012, resulting in the exit of national team coach Matjaz Kek, who had been in charge since 2007. Slavisa Stojanovic will be in charge on Tuesday.

Bostjan Cesar and Bojan Jokic, who play at Chievo Verona in Italy with U.S. midfielder Michael Bradley, are among the nine Italian-based players in the squad.

Slovenia roster:
Goalkeepers: Vid Belec (Crotone, Italy), Jasmin Handanovic (Maribor), Samir Handanovic (Udinese, Italy)

Defenders: Miso Brecko (Cologne, Germany), Bostjan Cesar (Chievo Verona, Italy), Branko Ilic (Lokomotiv Moscow, Russia), Bojan Jokic (Chievo Verona, Italy), Matej Mavric Rozic (Kapfenberger, Austria), Miral Samardzic (Sheriff Tiraspol, Moldova), Marko Suler (Ghent, Belgium)

Midfielders: Armin Bacinovic (Palermo, Italy), Josip Ilicic (Palermo, Italy), Andraz Kirm (Wisla Krakow, Poland), Rene Krhin (Bologna, Italy), Dejan Lazarevic (Padova, Italy), Darijan Matic (Kryvbas Kryvyi Rih, Ukraine), Ales Mertelj (Maribor), Dare Vrsic (Olimpija Ljubljana)

Forwards: Valter Birsa (Genoa, Italy), Zlatko Dedic (Bochum, Germany), Zlatan Ljubijankic (Ghent, Belgium), Tim Matavz (PSV, Netherlands), Nejc Pecnik (Krylya Sovetov, Russia)
